Song Check ... for Gayman's Got Talent Show!

Thank you for signing up to participate in Gayman’s talent show 2022!


If you plan to have any music played during your act, this is a reminder to provide all music (emailed as an MP3 file, not a CD, in the version you plan to use) by January 21st to cstevens@cbsd.org. (This is an extension from the original date of January 14). All music and words must be appropriate to the elementary school environment. If you are singing, you must send in a karaoke (instrumental) version.


We can’t wait to hear all about your act during our in-school check-ins next week!

Congratulations!

Congratulations to December's Boomerang Award Winners: Leah Tellner (5th Grade), Reece Reardon (4th Grade), and Chloe Tellner (3rd Grade)! These students demonstrated the character trait of Responsibility.

Find a Job You Enjoy

“Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Mark Twain


This quote may optimize the wish that many parents have for their children’s future. Finding that ideal job is the challenge and for our children it is often a matter of “trying things on” to see what fits. The link below shares interesting looks at how people feel about the work they do. Although many of the videos may be more appropriate for older students, some could be fun for the younger ones such as Kite Designer or Experimental Film and Stop Motion Animator.
