The Weekly Spur

Week Nineteen: January 18 - 22, 2016

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is Monday, Jan. 18

The King Holiday honors the life and contributions of America’s greatest champion of racial justice and equality, the leader who not only dreamed of a color-blind society, but who also lead a movement that achieved historic reforms to help make it a reality. On this day we commemorate Dr. King’s great dream of a vibrant, multiracial nation united in justice, peace and reconciliation; a nation that has a place at the table for children of every race and room at the inn for every needy child. We are called on this holiday, not merely to honor, but to celebrate the values of equality, tolerance and interracial sister and brotherhood he so compellingly expressed in his great dream for America.

Word of the week, Quote & Call back:

W.O.W. – Cooperation: working together

Quote: “We must all live together as brothers or perish alone as fools.” By Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Call Back: Working……Together!

Pictures for the Yearbook - please share!

The PTA is in need of pictures that you have been taking this year.

Here is the info for uploading pictures to eshare. If you have a flash drive and/or memory card, Jennifer Andrews can take those as well... So far they need pictures from meet the teacher all the way through Christmas parties.

You can also upload your pictures to eShare or use the HJeShare app!

The eShare code is CSESpurs. In the next week, PTA will be pulling pictures and designing pages and would love to have your pictures to choose from, too

PTA Information:

*PTA has created a BOX TOP GARDEN. Depending on how many box tops you have turned in depends on how many petals are on your flower. The first petal represents 25 or less box tops and every petal after represents 10 boxtops. **Just a reminder, SPED will be picking up your box top envelope every Friday, not PTA. **

*If you have any pictures from your classroom that can be shared, please send them to Crystal Barnhill or Jill Wagenknecht. We will forward them to the yearbook committee. Thank you in advance!
