Exceptional things happen here!

Week of March 7-11

A message from the office

A BIG thank you to all the parents that are able to get their students to school on time! We know mornings are very busy with kids getting ready for school and parents getting for work, but we want to remind you all how important it is for students to get to school on time! We want all of our students to succeed and getting to school on time is an important part of succeeding!

Another reminder: please call and let us know when you kiddos will be absent. We know life happens, kids get sick, the car breaks down and family emergencies occur. The earlier you can call the office or attendance line, the better: it means you won’t get the attendance call!

We want to sincerely thank you for everything you do to get your kids to school. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Office staff

A peek into the 3rd grade...

Third graders are wrapping up a fun-filled unit about butterflies and their life cycle this week! We kicked off the unit with a field trip to OMSI where we saw a 3D movie called "Flight of the Butterflies."We learned all about Monarch butterflies and how they make the longest migration in the world to Mexico. We continued our studies by reading non-fiction texts about different types of butterflies in class and compared and contrasted butterflies and moths. Third graders got to observe first-hand the four main stages of the butterfly life cycle in class. We got five Pink Lady caterpillars delivered to our class and ended up with three adult butterflies! We released them into the school garden last week. Our unit ended with each student drawing a picture of a butterfly and bringing it to life with water colors!

Read Across America Day

March 2nd was Read Across America Day. Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. To celebrate Read Across America Day, parents and community members read to students in each classroom. As a special treat, Sally Showman, Meteorologist for KOIN 6 News visited a few classrooms at our school. She shared her love for books and spoke about how reading has impacted her both personally and professionally. Ms. Showman's mother was a teacher in the Seattle area for 30 years and she learned early how learning to read enrich's a persons life. Her favorite book is one she got for her high school graduation - Oh The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss. Students were able to ask Ms. Showman questions and enjoyed learning how reading can help you reach your life goals. We were very impressed at how approachable and charming our local celebrity was. Check out this clip that shows Ms. Showman talking about LSES: https://youtu.be/R5Dte9aFdEQ.
