Lemonade Day was a HUGE success!!!!

Thank you so much for all that you did to make Lemonade Day a success! As you know, Lemonade Day is a community wide educational program that teaches kids the entrepreneurial skills necessary to start, own and operate their own business, which in this case was a lemonade stand. Our students have been very excited about the event and proved themselves to be hard-working entrepreneurs. They have experienced the financial literacy TEKS for 3rd grade, not just read about them in the classroom. The students learned about advertising, marketing, human capital, profit and most importantly charity. Third grade will be donating ~ $2,000 to various local charities.

I cannot tell you how proud I am of our students. I was truly blown away by how well they handled themselves and the enthusiasm with which they approached this project.

Teamwork- Dedication- Enthusiasm- PRICELESS!!!

Field Day

Greens Prairie field day is right around the corner. Field day will be Tuesday, May 24th. With the summer Olympics soon upon us, we would like to incorporate an Olympics theme for field day.

All year long, each PE homeroom has had a color. Colors will correspond with the color of cone your class will report to. We would also like to give each class a country to represent. Some classes may decide to come up with a team name that represents their country, or dress in the class/country/flag colors.

We also would like to have an opening ceremony the morning of field day. If your class would like to create a flag for their country, we would like to include them in the gym. There will also be a torch passing.

As time gets closer, I will send out details with times and station info. Here are the countries and colors for each homeroom...
