We are rebranding "Bully Prevention Week" to "Kindness Counts Week"

Kindness Counts Week is February 16-19

During this week, we will be focusing on kindness and postive behaviors through morning announcements.

Tuesday: Teachers will have kindness stickers for each student to wear.

Wednesday: National Random Acts of Kindness Day: Teachers will have a slip of paper for each student. I will discuss Random Acts of Kindness on announcements this morning. Sometime today, please have each student write a Random Act of Kindness that they could do for someone else on their slip of paper. Please turn the slips in to me by Thursday morning.

Thursday: Teachers will have a bookmark to give each student with 10 ways to show kindness. I will talk about these 10 things on morning announcements.

Friday: A kindness chain will be displayed with students' random acts of kindness. A list of kindness activities for families will go home in Friday folders.

Career Fair and Dress for Success

Teachers, please talk this up with your students. Thanks!

The Career Fair for 2nd-5th grade students is scheduled for March 10th from 9:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. We are excited about this opportunity for our students to learn about various careers from volunteers in our community. On March 10th, we are asking 2nd-5th grade students to come to school “Dressed for Success” while they interview the career professionals at the Fair. Thank you very much for supporting our career education programs!

Get Ready for the Super Bowl Halftime Show!

Coldplay is one of the bands we have listened to in our house for years, and they will be performing at halftime on Sunday. This clip is long, but if you are a fan of Apple's dad, you will appreciate the heck out of the next fifteen minutes. Also, if you have not heard of James Corden, take the time to look him up. He is extremely funny and talented.
