Collection for Veterans

The Veteran's home was very appreciative of the huge donation from our school. It was truly a team effort. We are proud of our hard work to help our community. Thank you student council members and Ms. Blum and Ms. Schaffter for leading this effort!

Students of the Month :)

Inclusive Books

All students should be able to see themselves in the books they read. Books can introduce new places, ideas, or situations to its readers, or to portray characters with whom readers can relate to and identify with. See below for books that celebrate diversity. Have fun exploring new and exciting books!

Big picture

Elmore is a picture book that celebrates friendship, compassion and being true to yourself.

Elmore is overwhelmed by sadness. When an old uncle reminds him of his quills’ beauty, Elmore gets an idea — maybe sharing his quills with others would help them see the beauty, too.

Some things to think about...

  • How do you think Elmore feels when he is all alone?
  • What is Elmore's big idea?
  • How do Elmore's feelings change at the end of the story? Why?
  • What words describe who Elmore is?
  • What lesson does this story teach us?
  • How can you be a good friend to others?
  • What is something special about you?
