Message from Mrs. Walton
I would like to thank all of our families for trusting me and my dynamic staff with your most precious gifts! I am so grateful to serve you and your child with an AMAZING faculty and staff. It was so nice to have so many volunteers assist with the holiday gift shop and craft. We are fortunate to have families who are so wonderful to work with. Thank you for taking the time to complete the Climate Survey. I welcome your input on how to improve our learning environment. I encourage families to get involved in our PTA. The PTA will be hosting a Sweetheart dance on February 16, 2023 for our students and their families. Worldwide Music will be providing the entertainment. I hope you see you there! Happy holidays! Enjoy your friends and family this holiday season. See you on Tuesday, January 3.

Oratorical Contest Information - open to all students in any grade
Below are links to find information about the Optimist Club's International Oratorical contest that is open to all students in any grade and comes with a large prize if a student wins. The information is posted on the district website in two places:
Share the Wonders of Science With Your Elementary Student
• Encourage your child to collect and organize objects, such as leaves, rocks, shells or bottle caps.
• Encourage investigation. Give your child a magnifying glass. Ask, “What things do you see?” “What’s similar and what’s different with and without the glass?”
• Talk about the science that happens at home. Which cereals get soggy in milk? Why do foods in the refrigerator get moldy? Why do some plants need more water than others?
• Show an interest in science. Look at the moon and the stars with your child. Weigh snow. Mix paint colors.
• Include your child—as an observer or, better yet, a helper—when you make household repairs or work on the family car.
• Nurture curiosity. Ask your child questions. “Why do you think ... ?” “What might happen if ... ?” and “How can we find out ... ?”
• Go to the library. Check out books on different scientific topics.
• Give your child something to take apart—a ball point pen, a candle, an old toy. Encourage your child to figure out how it works.
• Talk about the weather. Have your child record the temperature each day for a month. Note whether the day was sunny, cloudy, rainy or snowy. Which was the coldest day? How many snowy days were there?
