Students Enjoy Exploring Numbers!
As math gets more difficult, Mrs. Mulvaney makes it fun! In this lesson students had to order numbers as a class. They were placed in teams and given a time limit. This challenging activity didn't contain your ordinary numbers!

Canned Food Drive!
Our Student Council is once again sponsoring our annual canned food drive! The drive will end on Friday November 18th. Students are encouraged to bring canned foods, non-perishable food products or personal care products to their home room class where they will be collected and donated to the Freestore Foodbank and N.E.E.D.S. Collection bins will be placed in the front office lobby. The Freestore suggest the following items that are always needed: canned meat products (tuna, chicken, ham, spaghetti with meatballs, chili with meat and beans, beef stew, beans, etc.) peanut butter, canned vegetables and fruits. Other non-perishable items needed include canned soups, macaroni and cheese, personal care items such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, tooth brushes, feminine hygiene products and disposable diapers. No glass items please!
Our Book Fair was a Success, Thanks to the Volunteers!
We'd like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to those who volunteered at and / or supported the Greene School book fair last week. With your help, we were able to put A LOT of great books into the hands of A LOT of great kids! We greatly appreciate your devotion to literacy.
As a result of the book fair, the Greene School media center profited approximately $3,000. Of that profit, we gained about $1,100 worth of physical books chosen from the Joseph Beth book fair tables. The remaining $1,900 will be used to build the Greene School eBook and audiobook collections. We quite literally couldn't have done it without you---our volunteers and our shoppers! THANKS AGAIN!
P.S. A big shout out to Bruegger's Bagels, Starbucks, and Kroger for the donations which allowed us to have the Books & Bagels teacher event to help kick off the Fair, and to Mr. Tony Gribi who ensured those donations.
