We have had lots to celebrate lately! We had cupcakes for Te'Chaun's birthday on Friday. The superstars also ROCKED their most recent Reading Street test with a class average of 87%! Today, during respect circle, Kayla was named bucketfiller of the month for always helping others. Way to go Kayla!!
Our school is currently raising money for the fight against blood cancers such as leukemia as part of the Pasta for Pennies program. Each child received a yellow coin box to fill. Find that loose change in your couch cushions, hiding in your cupholders and weighing down your pockets and throw it in the box! We have already collected a significant amount as a class. Seven superstars have turned in their coin boxes so far! The last day to turn in coins is this Friday, April 24th. Check out info about Pasta for Pennies here.
I will be out for the next 2 days because I was given the opportunity to attend a fantastic reading and writing training! I will miss the superstars, but I know these 2 days will be well spent. I look forward to applying all the things I learn when I get back.
M-Step testing is approaching. 4th grade starts testing next week. Be on the lookout for more information regarding testing next week.
Mr. Lyman has set an attendance challenge for the school! we are hoping to increase the amount of students here every day, all day! Students that are at school all day every day for a week, plus are on time and are not picked up early will receive a prize. Obviously, if kids are truly sick, they need to stay home. The good news is, if your kiddo misses the prize one week, they can earn it the next! So be sure to come to school on time and try to miss as few days as possible. It is crucial for students to be here as we prepare for M-Step testing!
