A New Staff Member
Our new custodian started today. His name is Ethan and he is from China. He has been in the United States since June. He has a BS degree in Design from China and trained children in figure skating. He and his wife, Amanda, are expecting their first child. Ethan is learning English, and knows a little right now. Please talk with your children and let them know that he doesn't know a lot of English right now. Many of the students were speaking to him today, and he was unsure of what they were saying. Maureen speaks Chinese, so she can teach us a few words and phrases, and we can teach the kids so that they can talk to him.
Ethan will be on the main hallway, and Darlene will be moving to the 4th/5th grade hallway. I know you will make him feel welcome!
The Reading Garden
Beth Moore sent you a link last week about a contest that could potentially allow us to win $10,00 for our reading garden. Please click on the link below. You will then need to click on Contest and follow the directions to register. Be sure you register for Cedar Grove and not Grove Elementary. You will need to go on each day to vote for our school. Put a sticky note on your computer to remind you! Please don't forget! Let's go get that $10,000!
