50/50 Club
Parents of 4th and 5th grade parents, be watching for information about a new club Mrs. Hunt is starting in addition to After School Action. This one will involve physical activity, science and computers among other things. Looks to be great fun. Please note that this one requires a sign up and is not drop in like After School Action.

Recognition for Behavior
On Friday, along with the usual merriment, we will be having an event from 8:30 – 10. Students have chosen between an assortment of activities and will be doing things like Zumba, Bracelet making, Frisbee golf, story telling, badminton and cookie decorating. Our philosophy is that we get the behavior we recognize – so we are recognizing great behavior! We will start right at 8:30, so please make sure kids get to school on time.

From Ms. Gwen in the computer lab:
Do you do any computer programming or coding as a part of your job? Do you use technology in some other awesome or innovative way? K-5 students will be studying computer science and coding during Computer class after Thanksgiving and we would love it if you could come in or Skype with us about what you do and how you use technology to change the world.

Please contact Ms. Gwen ( if you're interested.
