Weekly communication from Sunset Ranch - Sept 3rd-7th
"Leaders of the Pack" - Student Council at SR expands to include 4th grade representatives!
Mrs. Camillucci and Ms. Hopton rolled out information this week about Leaders of the Pack to 4th-6th grade students. Here are three ways students can get involved:
1. Apply for and run for office! (5th grade is eligible to apply and run for Treasurer and Secretary/Communications Officer; 6th grade is eligible to apply and run for President and Vice President).
2. Apply for and run for office! Don't get elected? No problem, because you can be appointed to one of 4 Board Members at Large positions (2 positions for 5th and 2 positions for 6th)
3. Selected by your classroom to be a classroom rep (4th grade is eligible for this! A total of 11 spots in 4th-6th are available).
September's Attendance Awareness Month Challenge!
How does a class win? Easy. When the WHOLE class is on time and stays all day (no tardies, no early outs, no absences), they get to color in a letter on the ATTENDANCE sign and put the date at the bottom. When ALL 10 letters are filled in during the month of September, the teacher can redeem the sign for one of the fun things!
School Spotlight - Kindergarten Kindness and Bucket-Filling
Kindergarten has been filling buckets - literally and metaphorically! At the beginning of the year, all three Kindergarten classes read a book called, "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids". In their classrooms, the teachers reward good choices and kind behavior by filling an actual bucket with marbles. When a classroom bucket is completely filled, the class has a celebration. Often, the students choose their reward the day they fill their buckets, and the class has the celebration the following day. This week, Mrs. Stowers and her class chose "Kid's Choice", which included the art cart to make creations with play dough, pipe cleaners, water color, etc OR floor toys like Legos and blocks OR kitchen/make believe OR iPads. Mrs. Bauer, Mrs. Kirk, and their classes also earned celebrations this week and both their classes chose to do Pajama Day on Friday.
