Mrs. Hamilton's Class

September 26, 2014

We made special memories with our grandparents!

Mayor Scott Fadness!

Students had the opportunity to learn about our community government from our future mayor! Scott Fadness taught us all about his responsibilities as mayor of Fishers!

College Go! Week

This week was College Go! Week in Indiana! We have learned that it is never too early to start planning and talking about college! On Thursday, students wore their favorite college shirt or colors!


Mrs. Bradley taught us what it means to be S.O.S. during learning times at school!

S.O.S. stands for:

S- Silent and Still

O- Out with Distractions

S- Stay Focused on the Target

Ask your child how this will help them stay focused at school!
