Sarah Harward came to talk to our class about modern Egypt, because we have been learning about Ancient Egypt.  It was interesting to learn that Egypt seems to have regressed.  Many students are looking into the causes of that on their own.  This is a picture of students trying on the clothes many Muslims wear every day.

Thank you to Michelle Anderson and the others on her white ribbon week board at Hobble Creek Elementary. We have had a really great White Ribbon Week. This week was centered around making smart choices on the internet and with media. The theme is, "It's up to me on how I spend my time." We focused on how students can become aware of the amount of time they spend each day in front of a screen and the dangers to be aware of. All students signed their names on a large banner Tuesday and wrote down ideas of things they could do instead of being in front of media. The students were incouraged to have a 24 hour media fast. There was a dress up day to wear their favorite sports team jersey. Each day they earned tickets for a prize drawing. This drawing will be held at the end of the school day today for prizes centering on things kids can do instead of being in front of a screen. Ask your kids what they learned and how your family can incorporate the theme into your lives.

The Great Kindness Challenge is one school week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible from a 50 item checklist. The event will take place during the week of January 23rd-27th.
