Join the Spirit Week Fun Next Week!
We have Spirit, Yes we do, We have Spirit, We Give Back!
In addition to the fun, we will have during spirit week, we also want to use our energy to help others in need. Throughout Spirit Week we will be collecting cereal boxes to donate to a local food pantry. At the end of the week, we will line up all the cereal boxes donated to create a giant domino effect. Let’s see if we can set a record for longest cereal box dominos! Have some fun while helping others!

Digging In To Talent!
Anderson Elementary, It is time to dig in and find your best talent to share with our Anderson Community through our 2021 Virtual Anderson Talent Show!
Our virtual show will be released on May 24th! Our 5th-grade classes will be helping to put together the opening and/or closing acts of the show and Student Council will be introducing our performances!
To be in the talent show, you simply need to record a video of you doing your talent. You can practice as many times as you want until you get it just right! Your video should be no longer than 2 minutes long. Please have your family email the video to Mrs. Majewski, fill out the google form, or if you use your google account you can share the video with her. Only record your talent act with us in your video. Please tell us separately your name, class, and title of your act or song. We need all of this turned in by May 7th!
We can’t wait to see the amazing talent you share with us! If you have any questions please reach out to Mrs. Weber, Ms. Reyes, or Mrs. Majewski! Let the recording begin!
