Posted February 12, 2022
This week refreshed our minds with some of our favorite traditions of the year and brought lots of joy to the school. The Kindergarten classes spent this morning celebrating 100 Days of School. It is always a fun day to see Kindergarteners dress like 100-year olds or wear their best 100-day outfits, it is as interesting to see their teachers take on the role too!!. They marched in a parade down the hallways as our older students cheered them on!
The Boys Basketball team played their toughest game yet in Wednesday’s District Playoff quarterfinals against Merrill and WON 53-47 in OVERTIME! Congrats, boys and Coaches! Their winning streak was broken last night when they lost to McCauliff. Still, it was a season to be proud of. Their full court press is quite impressive.
Monday is a big day, Valentine’s day. Look for communication from the classroom teachers about specific activities that are happening in individual rooms.
Have a great weekend!

Kids Heart Challenge
We will be kicking off the Kids Heart Challenge (formly Jump Rope for Heart) throughout the next month as students come to PE Class. This is our 16th year working with the American Heart Association and DPS on Kids Heart Challenge. We will run this annual service learning project for the next few months. Working towards learning about life long fitness, nutrition, and how service learning projects can help others less fortunate (kids born with heart disease, possible hole in their heart, born heart defect, families that need help with massive bills for life saving surgeries). Along the way each grade will also be working on learning/brushing up on their jumping rope, double dutch, long rope, and other wonderful jump roping skills.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Ms. Nadon.
