We will be recording the concert and will post it on our website. Please note: we are not shutting down the link between performing groups so there will be some “dead air” as we switch our setup. Please see below for details:

Note from the Office

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, I have had several students out absent, that haven't been reported that they are going to be out for the day. Please make sure to call the front office, submit the attendance form online, or send an email to jaldrich@ewsd.org, by 8:30 to let me know.

Thank you!

Kick off to 2022

Happy New Year! We have kicked off 2022 with a focus on keeping healthy in the new year. In the next 6 weeks we will have several challenges to keep our minds and bodies active and engaged.

This week we took time to do a “Go Noodle” each day. These fun, interactive videos get students up and moving. Each completed activity gave classrooms the chance to enter a drawing to choose our Friday “walk out” song” - always a great way to end the week.

Next week we focus on mindfulness. Classrooms practice yoga, breathing exercises and mindfulness activities to encourage calm and focussed learning.

Every Friday we have a different theme to end the week and bring us together as a community. As always these days are optional for all. The list is below to give everyone time to plan ahead.

Week of January 24th: "Grateful for Rest and Calm": Wear flannels or something cozy.

Week of January 31st: "Grateful for Dance": Wear Your Dance off Shirt

Week Of February 7th: "Grateful for Books": Wear the color RED for stop drop and REaD day

Week of February 14th: "Grateful for Vacation": Beach day - Wear your best beach gear - beach towels, sunglasses, shorts, flip flips, beach hat etc.

Ask your student about our Winter Weekly Challenges. As always, thank you for all you do to support our students.

Dance Off is Coming!!!

One of our favorite events here at Fleming is our Annual Dance Off! This is a long standing tradition here at Fleming. Students will be working on their dance routines during their PE. 5th grade even has the opportunity to choreograph their classes dance!

Tentatively on February 9th, we will be holding an all school assembly to watch the dances. Due to COVID, this will look like last year, and we will be filming everything in advance, and watching all the dances from their classrooms. We will share the video with families after we view it as a school. As always, we will also have "Celebrity Guest Judges" to Judge the competition!
