Last Friday, fourth grade held a writing celebration in the elementary cafeteria. The kids did an excellent job sharing their animal research reports with students and staff from all grade levels. It was impressive to see our kids do such a nice job presenting their work. This was a wonderful opportunity for students to work on their oral and written communication skills. Kudos to the teachers that set this event up. Nice job!
This Wednesday we celebrated a Walk Up Day in the elementary building. Students were encouraged to walk up to others in an effort to spread kindness. Students wrote the various acts of kindness that they did on Post-its and added them to a Walk Up Poster hanging next to the cafeteria. This idea came from our high school student leaders and staff. Great job!

This Monday we celebrated Read Across America Day in conjunction with Dr. Seuss’s birthday (Friday’s assembly was snowed out). How did we celebrate reading? Reading of course! We held our second school-wide DEAR Time in the elementary gymnasium and read for 6 uninterrupted minutes PK-4 (breaking October’s record). Great job to our students and staff for adding to our building books read total of 17, 177. Keep up the great work!
Mr. Morton will be visiting us this coming Tuesday with some special animal friends. Your children should have some additional knowledge to share with the family after school. It is always fun to try and guess what he will bring.

On Wednesday we recognized our February Character Cadets. February’s character trait was “Friendship”. Good friends: listen to each other, help each other solve problems, give compliments, are dependable, respect each other, and are trustworthy. A big thank you to our families for instilling this trait in your kids. March’s character trait will be “Cooperation”!
This Monday, we celebrated Read Across America Day in conjunction with Dr. Seuss’s birthday. NEA’s Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. We held our second school-wide DEAR Time (Drop Everything and Read) in the elementary cafeteria at 1:15. The purpose of the assembly was to celebrate our most recent book total (17,161), read as a group, and set a goal for the rest of the quarter. Students were visited by a very special visitor at the end of the assembly. Great job!
