A BUSY START TO SPRING
MARCH 15, 2018
West VEX Robotics Showcase
THE BLIZZARD CUP
From December 26 to March 6, the Community Education and Recreation Department tracked elementary students' reading minutes on myON. The school that accumulated the most reading minutes throughout the length of the reading challenge was awarded the Blizzard Cup!
Three elementary schools remained within minutes of one another throughout the whole challenge season. In the end, the final standings were as follows:
1) Roosevelt Elem.
2) Hoover Elem.
3) Jefferson Elem.
This is quite an impressive accomplishment for our Jefferson Jaguars considering the competition was based solely on total reading minutes. The fact that Roosevelt has 150 more students than we have at Jefferson, and Hoover has nearly 300 more, shows just how much reading our students did. We are very proud of their efforts!
- On scheduled two hour late start days, many students who are not signed up have been arriving early. It's very important that families complete the late start form in advance each month if they plan to bring students to school before 10:00 A.M. We develop planned activities and prepare breakfast based on the late start forms we receive. Similarly, if you did send in the late start slip indicating that your child would be coming early, and your plans change, please notify the office. We want to be sure all our kids are accounted for on those busy mornings. Thank you for helping keep us informed.
- The Lost and Found table is filling up again. Please check it over any time you visit school. We will have all the items out during conferences, and anything remaining after that will be donated locally.
