TYLEND FINISHES 9TH IN THE NATION!!!
4TH GRADE WAX MUSEUM
It is simple. Just look for the day when all of the 4th Grade students lug big bags of costumes and amazing poster boards to school. The event happens every spring and every spring the students continue to amaze me. They spend weeks researching, reading, and writing. Then they put tremendous effort into building a poster board that displays a ton of factual information. Lastly, the students pull together incredible costumes and spend over an hour sharing a wealth of information with the entire school and their families.
This year did not disappoint!! The addition of the "press for information" button added an engaging twist and allowed the students to move. I loved it, and I am so proud of all of the 4th Graders and their teachers!!!! #ONEHIVE

YELLOWJACKET OF THE WEEK
Check out our latest group of YellowJackets of the Week who all exemplify forgiveness skills!
Forgiveness is a choice to let go of anger toward someone who hurt you...and to think, feel, or act with kindness toward that person. If you forgive someone that doesn’t make you weak—it takes strength and courage to forgive.
Also, if you forgive someone it doesn’t necessarily mean you are forgetting or condoning being hurt; you can forgive while still believing the person who wronged you should face a consequence for what they did. Think about showing forgiveness to someone as an action that actually helps YOU- when you forgive, you are allowing yourself to move on and not dwell on something negative.

Our theme will be “Reading Gives You Super Powers” as we celebrate throughout the month with fun dress-up days, weekly prize drawings, special visitors, and more.Children are encouraged to read at home, with a daily goal of 15 minutes for a kindergarten-2nd grade, and a daily goal of 20 minutes for 3rd-5th grade. Minutes may include your child reading to self or to others, or you reading aloud to your child. Keep track of minutes on the reading log for all reading done at home, and return it to school each Thursday beginning March 3rd for a chance to win some awesome prizes each week. Students meeting the minimum weekly goal will receive one ticket for the weekly prize drawing. Students doubling the goal will receive an extra ticket. The more they read, the more chances they have to win! Stay tuned throughout the month as we announce more special activities.
