💙 WEEK 3 of #CelebrateDifferences will focus on FRIENDSHIP! 💙

“A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be” - Winnie the Pooh


“You have been my friend...that in itself is a tremendous thing” - Charlotte’s Web by EB White

💙 🎉 THIS THURSDAY, 4/15 ALL STUDENTS are encouraged to ROCK YOUR SOCKS! 🧦🤟

Feel free to wear your craziest, funkiest, most colorful or mismatched socks to close out our #CelebrateDifferences campaign promoting ACCEPTANCE, INCLUSION and FRIENDSHIP

We would love for you to continue the conversation at home as a family. Here are some "Dinner Table Conversation Starters"

  • What qualities do you look for in a friend? Do you think you exhibit those qualities?

  • How can you extend friendship to someone who looks lonely at lunch or recess?

  • What are some good conversation starters when you meet someone new?

  • How can we be better friends to other people?

We also encourage you to read this short article “The Power of a Relationship” by Amanda Owen https://piecesofme.org/2019/05/17/how-a-friendship-with-someone-who-has-a-disability-can-impact-ones-health/

🚗 Hi Car Rider Parents,

Could you please help us out?


  • The speed limit on the campus is 5 mph.
  • Please be extra careful and slow on the north end of the campus where we are loading and unloading some of our students with special needs.
  • Could we squeeze just a little closer in the afternoon so that more cars can get on the campus, and we might not block Sorghum Mill.


~~ Thank you to everyone for pulling off to the side of the road on Sorghum mill road! That is so considerate & helpful!


- Principal Cathey Bugg

This is National School Library Month. Part of the nationwide celebration is Drop Everything and Read Day on Monday, April 12th. I challenge every family to participate in 20 minutes of DEAR time during the week. If you would like to send pictures of your children reading at home, I'll print them and share them in the library. You can email them to marsha.drees@edmondschools.net.


Happy Reading!


Thanks!
