Picture Day!

Picture Day went off without a hitch! A special thanks to all the parents who came in to help!

Federal Survey Cards

If you haven’t returned your card yet, please turn them in as soon as possible! These went out this past week and all need to be returned. 

Character Education

This week Nicole Meyer came in to teach the first Character Education lesson of the year. The trait of the month is Respect. Nicole worked with the kids to see that we are all different and can love and respect each other for ways we are different and the same. The students loved the lesson!

Super Penguin Update

Have you turned in your envelope yet? We are trying to get to 100% of envelope return! We have had about 8 envelopes turned in and those students received their bracelets! Remember no donation is required! As current AFP members…thank you!

Spookley, The Square Pumpkin

This week Caitlyn Tschernskowitsch prepared a story and craft for our students. The story of Spookley discusses many huge concepts of building confidence and valuing differences and of course helping others! Each student made their own Spookley pumpkin of different shapes and colors. Check out our Spookley Pumpkin Patch.

Buddy Time …Art!

This week we met with our buddies! We were having so much fun I forgot to take pictures! Our TK’s look forward to meeting with their buddies more than any other part of our week! I hear our 3rd graders feel the same!!! We seriously love them and the help they give! WE made some fall trees with our buddies this week! 

STEAM Focus

In our focus to learn about Living and Nonliving things, we have learned that Animals, Plants and People are living things. We’ve been discovering what living things need to survive. Check out some of the work and thinking we’ve studied and charted!

TK/K PLC Planning Days

This week the TK/K Teachers have their first Professional Learning Communities (PLC) Planning Day. We have these days about 1x a month. During these days, we have trainings, we plan together, and create vision and plan support and growth for our students. Our first PLC day is this Tuesday. Mrs. Whelehon is a wonderful substitute teacher and will be teaching our sweet class while I’m gone.

Letter/Sound Aa

This past week we studied the multi-faceted letter Aa. We practiced what it looks like, sounds like (many different sounds) and how to write it properly!
