Happy New Year!
We are excited to be back into the full swing of things around here. It's so great to see everyone again. We hope you all had a peaceful winter break! I had hoped for more snow so that the kids could go sledding and build snowmen. Maybe they will get the opportunity before winter is over.

Generation Alive Coin Drive & Meal Build
Our coin drive and meal build was a HUGE success!
After our final collection day, we raised $3,642.67. This was enough to make 14,571 meals!
We had an amazing team of 5th grade students leading our school-wide meal build. They led other students through a food packing event, helping to package meals that will be distributed to local food banks. ALL of our students were assigned a task and participated in putting the meals together. Thank you to everyone who helped make this such as success. This was a great opportunity for our students and for our community.

PACE Character Trait
The PACE Character Trait for January is FAIRNESS.
FAIRNESS IS TREATING PEOPLE AND IDEAS WITH JUSTICE AND IMPARTIALITY.
Throughout the month of January we will look for examples of students demonstrating fairness. If you have an example of your child being fair at home, we'd love to share it on the morning announcements! Click on THIS LINK to submit a shout out!
