Daylight Savings Bright Lights

We are learners, at every turn.

Book Fair Fiesta

We are a fiesta of books in our main entrance! Under the direction of one of our volunteers, Stacey Rice, our second book fair of the year is off and rolling! The students watched a video introducing them to some of the titles which gave them an idea of where to start. Mrs. Rice also gave each class an intro into how to shop the collection. Thanks for your support and shopping during the fair.

Trivia Night Success

Thanks to all of you who attended last Friday's event to raise funds for the STEM program. The questions of the first two rounds were challenging, yet the third round separated the teams into who the pro's of movie trivia were. The silent auction had terrific choices and we thank all of the donors for their contributions. Cathy James and her volunteers held a terrific event and we are grateful for all of the work that went into it. It was fun!

What is this March Madness?

Many of you know I am a basketball official. I began my officiating in 1975 and have done many levels of play with many fine officials all over the state. This time of year is especially fun for me doing tournaments, watching/attending the games and for many families who are following teams, it is exciting as well.

It is a time of year too when the seasons begin to change, and we are eager to have fun outside. I hope you can enjoy the added hour of sunlight as well as warmer weather. And may your favorite team have success along the way.

How was your conference?

This past week Thursday, and next week Tuesday, you may have attended or will attend a parent-teacher conference. I would encourage you to make some kind of connection with your child's teacher, if you weren't requested to have a conference. The time goes past way to quickly to miss an opportunity to catch up on celebrating progress, check in on progress, or make a plan to improve the weaknesses as the material may get more difficult. I believe these conversations are the backbone of a child's success in school. The more we share together, the greater the impact upon the amount of learning that occurs.
