Celebrate P.R.I.D.E. Panthers

It shows that keeping our expectations high for P.R.I.D.E. Panthers improves student behavior. You have already nominated a total of 81 students, or 22% of our student body. This is huge! Last year we had 49 students or 14% of our students nominated by this time. Keep up the great work and your high expectations!

On another note, if a student is given a discipline referral they should go 30 days without a discipline referral before they can be nominated as a PRIDE Panther.

Beds 4 Kids

If you have a child in your classroom who is in need of a bed, please complete the nomination form in your box and give it to Robin by October 2nd. We will pass these on to Matt Thomas at Solid Rock Church. Students nominated will be invited to an event on October 24th at JQH Arena. They will receive a frame, mattress, comforter, pillow & pillowcase, and sheets from Ashley Furniture HomeStore.


Haylei and Nyla may have a gift in broadcasting! These two girls rocked our announcements this week! Rebekah continues to do an amazing job filming and editing our daily announcements. Please send me an email to let me know your thoughts on the video announcements. Be sure to let Haylei, Nyla, and Rebekah know how you appreciate their hard work.

Painting Weller...

On Saturday there were 30+ MSU students at Weller. They painted the outside red poles and the poles in our hallway by the garden. (They will receive two more coats of paint.) They painted our paws on the sidewalk. (Don't they look great?!!) And they painted the poles on our swing-sets. Thanks to Leslie Ballew from SPS for connecting these volunteers to Weller!
