We’ve been busy in here! We jumped into coding before Winter break, and continued with the older grades learning BitsBox. They are really getting the hang of it! Grades 3-5 also got an intro to the SVVSD Digital Library…super cool! The younger grades got to learn the basics of coding, Scratch Jr, and got to know the computer keyboard a bit better.
I’ll be sending home notes with students who have overdue books soon…keep an eye out for library books at home.
We hope your winter is going great! February is the beginning of a busy time for PTO. We organize dinners for teachers for the parent-teacher conferences. We ask begin to organize some of our spring events such as the school carnival and Teacher Appreciation Week. Please get in touch with us if you would like to get involved with any of these events. We need your help to make them happen!
With cold and flu season in full swing, just a reminder of our medication administration policy… Please do not send any medication prescription or over the counter to school with your student unless we have a Permission to Medicate form completed by a doctor. Please call if you have any questions.
Congratulations to Kylie Paul, Karissa Erikson, and Abigail Honc! Their designs were selected for the 2018-2019 yearbook cover.
5th grade- Artists have finished constructing their ceramic boxes and will begin glazing once their pieces are fired. They are also collaborating with their peers to create ceramic bowls for the Empty Bowls Project, which helps support the OUR Center’s annual fundraiser to assist those in need.
Student Council did not meet in January. We are looking forward to meeting on Thursday, February 14th. We have a task from Dr. Guthals to help with some announcements that will help students remember to use their ROCKS behavior around the school. Also, Mrs. Staples and Mrs. Witko are excited to hear what ideas the council members have to impact our local community.
