McIntire Minutes 9/16/16
By Mark Clements, Principal
Next Thursday will be the first ever McIntire Elementary Trivia Night, sponsored by our McIntire PTO! The cost is $5 per person and students and adults will compete in teams of 8 with no more than four adults per team. We'll have cash prizes for first and second place as well as a silent auction. Bring your own food and drinks for even more fun!
You may register the night of the event or in advance at the link below. PLEASE do not send money to school - bring it with you to the event that night. For more information, please see the flyer that was emailed earlier today and is also being sent home in your child's backpack.

One of the fastest ways to develop curiosity and critical thinking with students is with a "Maker" or "UnMaker" space. Several students were really curious what was inside the stress ball that sits in my office....so I borrowed Ms. Gibbs class and the Art room for a bit while we took some guesses and then found out! The students learned a bit about forming hypothesis, experimentation...and had some fun along the way!
Our Librarian, Brenda Johnson, doing an activity with students in which they discuss "safe" vs "unsafe" websites on the internet. Students used red, yellow and green cards to express how they should treat certain things like virus alerts, people asking them for personal information, etc.

Students and staff at McIntire Elementary say the "Pledge of Allegiance" every morning. Our 5th grade students lead us in as a part of their morning announcements.
