Second Grade Roxaboxen Communities

To wrap a unit on Communities second graders created their own Roxaboxen communities based on the book Roxaboxen written by Barbara Cooney.  Students worked in groups to create the communities.  Each community consists of roads, homes, businesses and even a Town Hall.  Stop by and visit these little towns anytime in the 2nd grade hall.

Overview of Roxaboxen as it appears on

Marian called it Roxaboxen. (She always knew the name of everything.) There across the road, it looked like any rocky hill -- nothing but sand and rocks, some old wooden boxes, cactus and greasewood and thorny ocotillo -- but it was a special place: a sparkling world of jeweled homes, streets edged with the whitest stones, and two ice cream shops. Come with us there, where all you need to gallop fast and free is a long stick and a soaring imagination.

In glowing desert hues, artist Barbara Cooney has caught the magic of Alice McLerran's treasured land of Roxaboxen -- a place that really was, and, once you've been there, always is.

Birthday Cards for Rhett

Last week, the student council and many of the students at Westside wrote birthday cards for Rhett. Rhett is 8 years old and has Down syndrome. Over the past few years some of his Facebook friends and family have joined in in sending him Birthday cards.  This year, however, Rhett wanted 999 cards! 

Rhett has been through so much in his short life. He's had open heart surgery, a diagrammatic hernia repair, a tethered spinal cord repair, a palate reconstruction and a UPPP repair on his airway, as well as a g-tube and a Nissen. Currently his heart is having some more issues and his tricuspid valve needs to be replaced. 

According to the Facebook page, "Rhett LOVES cards. They are his favorite thing in the world. He will spend hours in the card aisle reading every single one if you would let him. Please help us make our little guy happy. It's something so small to us that would mean the world to him. Even if it's a home made card he would be more than thrilled."

Ribbon Week-"I've Got the Power" (White)

East Meadows Elementary News - Fri, 10/10/2014 - 2:47pm
(more pictures available)

Today was the last and final day for our Ribbon Week activities.  The students learned about internet and media safety.  THe wore white today.  We had an assembly in this afternoon with guest speaker Sara Coyne.  The students were sent home with a family media pledge form.  Please take a moment to review the pledge with your families.  We want to thank all the PTA volunteers and all the teachers that helped coordinate a fun and educational week!  Below are some internet and media guidelines:

Be safe and smart when using the internet and other media. 

  • Never share names, schools, ages, phone numbers, or addresses;
  • Never send pictures to strangers;
  • Keep passwords private (except to parents);
  • Never open email from strangers – it may contain viruses that can harm a computer; and
  • Immediately tell an adult if something mean or creepy happens. 

Rules of the Road for Kids

1. Guard your privacy. What people know about you is up to you. 

2. Protect your reputation. Self-reflect before you self-reveal. What’s funny or edgy today could cost you tomorrow. 

3. Nothing is private online. Anything you say or do can be copied, pasted, and sent to gazillions of people without your permission. 

4. Assume everyone is watching. There’s a huge, vast audience out there. If someone is your friend’s friend, they can see everything. 

5. Apply the Golden Rule. If you don’t want it done to you, don’t do it to someone else. 

6. Choose wisely. Not all content is appropriate. You know what we mean. 

7. Don't hide. Using anonymity to cloak your actions doesn’t turn you into a trustworthy, responsible human being. 

8. Think about what you see. Just because it’s online doesn’t make it true. 

9. Be smart, be safe. Not everyone is who they say they are. But you know that.

Students were treated to a great surprise today as they arrived at school.  There was a derby car and truck and several classic cars including a 1928 Model A, 1972 Cougar and 1967 Mustang Fast Back waiting for them.  Each class had an opportunity to go out and see the cars as Mrs. Wirfs made the comparison of a healthy, drug free body (classics) to the not healthy body (demolition).   Each student signed a drug free pledge promising to stay drug free. 

In their class they "stomped" on balloons filled with candy as they stomped out drug use.

Special thanks to Edgar Davis, Corey Hoover and Leighton Shepherd for donating their cars.
