In P.E. we did our own version of the Winter Olympics. The first game we did was the bobsled. Students were in groups of three and each sat on their own scooter. They would link themselves together with their legs. Students used their arms to push themselves around a course in the gym as fast as they could. Other students would cheer on and encourage their classmates. It was a lot of fun to participate and work together with classmates in this Olympic game!

In the library this week we had a fun lesson on experimenting with different kinds of books. By sitting at a table with a group of 3-4 students, each student had a few minutes to sample each book at the table as if at a restaurant sampling different courses of a meal. There was a video of a fireplace going, soft music playing and Mrs. Olsen teaching about different kinds of books and what makes them appealing and enjoyable. The students loved the fun way the librarian brought the books to life for them for a day.

January 29, 2018

Dear Parents,

At this time of year, we see an increase in student absences. As a school, we support your decision concerning sending your child to school or not. If your child is sick and contagious, we would encourage you to keep him/her home to accelerate the healing process and get better.

That being said, attendance at school is critical to academic progress. If your child is not sick or contagious, please make an effort to help him/her get to school on time. Our teachers are prepared each day to provide quality learning activities for students. Without your child’s attendance, he/she will miss out on those lessons and activities causing them to fall behind academically. They are missed when they are not here.

Student success is a team effort between home and school. Thank you for your help concerning this matter. 

Have a great week, Dana Beckert
