Have you seen some of our bulletin boards?

Here is one from Mrs. Robert's kindergarten class and it is interactive. It may facilitate conversations about "What did you do at school today".   Check out her class email to find the questions to ask.
 Here is some writing from Mrs. Kanak's Kindergarten class after they read "Jazz Baby".   Literacy Charts & Bloom’s Taxonomy questions really help the students work through texts they have read as well as promoting critical thinking when reading.
 Even 5th graders are creating bulletin boards.  From Mrs. Mendrek's class, students are learning about different genres of writing.  This was on fiction.
 As I mentioned last week, student council campaigns were this week.  There was a totally of twenty 4th and 5th grade students running for either president, vice-president, treasure, or secretary.  The students created awesome posters and amazing speeches.  I was even part of two of them.  Something about my high heels and kissing a chicken?!

After all the campaigning and speeches, the 2014-2015 Student Council Officers are:
President: RyalJames, Vice President: Ridley, Secretary:  Caroline , and Treasure:  Raelen.

The following students will be part of our No Place For Hate Coalition as well.  Avery, Kody, Lily, Jason, Campbell, Sally, Ian, and Claire.

Congratulations to all the students for a great race.  I am so proud of each one of them.

Next week is Custodian Appreciation Week.  When you see our awesome Custodial Team, please let them know how much they are valued.

Have a great weekend.
