Pomona STEAM Lab Happenings
October is already in the rear view mirror!
What a great month of learning experiences, fun, and belonging. Thanks to everyone who has supported Pomona's fundraisers. The fifth grade "guess the number" candy jar fundraiser was great and raised about 180 dollars.
Our Walk to School Day was amazing and we had a huge turnout. Thanks to all the adults that walked too and supported our amazing kids.
The Halloween parade and day were awesome! It was awesome to see the creativity. We heard from families and visitors about how impressed they were with the kids' politeness and kindness during the day. Proud Principal moment!

It is that time of the year once again. Our food drive begins November 8th through December 6th.
Last year we found ourselves with a $1000 check in hand. That money went straight back to your kid's learning environments! Let's see if we can do that again.
We are doing the Healthy version of the competition. The points scale is below.

4C's: The 4 Cs: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creative Thinking are major pieces of our school. Below is a snapshot of what it looks like, sounds like, and feels like at Pomona.
Here is our October and November Challenge.
Create a lawn tool using recycled materials that will help you manage all the falling leaves. A new rake or shovel design? Or get creative and invent a new tool! Try using the Engineering Design Process that you have all been learning in STEAM LAB with Ms. Beale. Be sure to share your design through a picture or video so I can share some of them via Facebook or the next newsletter.
Our PTO is amazing. Just about everything you see at Pomona, from Aquos Boards to our Art teacher comes from major support of PTO. I cannot thank you and PTO enough for supporting the school and the kids. PTO does have a Facebook page and a website (see links right below).
Pick up: Monday - Thursday is between 3:55-4:10. Fridays: 1:55-2:10. If you need to pick kids up after 4:10/ or 2:10 on Fridays, we have an after-school program. That information can be picked up in the office.
