3rd Graders Spartanburg Animal Shelter Project!

· The fundraiser for the Spartanburg Animal Shelter begins this Monday, January 13th and will continue until the end of January.

· During our PBL we learned how changes in a habitat can affect animals that live there.

· Our driving question was: how can we assist or protect stray animals in our community when changes in their habitat occur?

· Students had a choice of creating a public service announcement, making a stray cat shelter or conducting a fundraiser.

· Groups who chose fundraiser created posters to hang around the school and a brochure to send home to students. Their goal was to collect supplies for the Spartanburg Animal Shelter.

· Other groups created stray cat shelters to put at the dumpsters at RES.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

The Garden Club is seeing the fruits of our labor as we were able to pick our first crops from our garden. Some of our broccoli was ready and the rest continues to flourish. As our cabbage continues to grow, we are seeing the first cabbage heads beginning to form. As we finish out the winter months, we are looking forward to our spring planting.

While PowerSchool is working to resolve this issue, parents can still access the Parent Portal through a web browser on a tablet, computer, or your mobile device. The link to the Parent Portal is available at under Parents & Students. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Don't forget, the Morning Research Lab is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 7:00-7:35. The lab is used for research and inquiry purposes, as well as completing assignments in ItsLearning or Spelling City. We look forward to seeing our inquiring Eagles in the Learning Lab!

Prescriptions from Nurse Beth

All students are required to have an up-to-date immunization certificate on file in order to stay in school. If you have been contacted about this, please make sure this is taken care of no later than Friday, September 14th.

If your child has been ill, remember the 24 Hour Rule of Thumb:

· 24 hours fever free without any fever reducing medications (Tylenol, Motrin) for 24 hours before returning to school

· 24 hours without nausea, vomiting, & diarrhea (and tolerating a normal diet)

· 24 hours of receiving medication such as antibiotics, eye ointment/drops

Remember students may not transport medications to and from school. A parent/guardian must bring in all medications.

Let’s stay healthy! Studies have shown that school absenteeism due to illness is reduced when good hand washing is practiced (before & after eating, after restroom use & playing outside).

It is my privilege to care for your child while here at school. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
