Special Events

We are working with both 3rd grades to make simple crafts and send encouraging greetings to two nursing-home-bound women. We have begun with a Thanksgiving project of "turkeys" seen above; pictures of future projects will be posted as we complete them. Students have enjoyed this in the past and feedback tells us that the recipients have been thrilled. The students' beautiful creations are often displayed so that others at the nursing home may also enjoy them. 
We thank Mrs. Skoglund for her artistic assistance and Mrs. Speck-Tritter for her photography.

We note that "a commitment to serve others" is an important component of our school's Mission Statement and participation with the nursing home is part of this commitment. 

New last year was the introduction of a 4-time after school "Story Time and Craft" activity for students (limited to 12) in grades 1 and 2.  
Halloween Theme      October 25, 2017 
Six students recently enjoyed 2 Halloween stories and then created the "pumpkins" you see in the above photos. We thank Mrs. Jacques, her granddaughter and Mrs. Skoglund for their talent and assistance. Photos by Mrs. Speck-Tritter.
Christmas Theme      December 13 
Valentine's Day Theme    February 7 
 Easter Theme     March 21

Although our annual Book Fair in March seems a long way off, it is our intention to do it again this year much to the delight of our students and their families. Many more details to come.
