To kick off our Safety Week, the PTA has arranged for Jason Hewlett to come provide a fun and entertaining program for our students. He is a big-time professional entertainer who is providing this experience for our students at no charge (because our school won an online participation contest - thanks to our awesome parents for getting involved on this one).
D track students will be off, but are invited to come back for this one IF they are accompanied by a parent. Seating will be available in the back of the gym for our D track friends.
The assembly will begin promptly at 9:30 am.

Our awesome PTA has arranged to have the Chick-fil-A mascot come in on the 2nd Tuesday of each month to provide a cookie for students with a birthday during that month. They bring enough cookies for any parents or family members of the birthday boy/girl to come in and sit with them during lunchtime. Click here to find out their lunchtimes. The kids loved having a special visitor in the lunchroom today!
After the first week of school - students gathered for an outdoor Kick-Off Assembly to celebrate their commitment to following the Big 3 & developing leadership at school. Students agreed to be respectful, responsible, and safe in all areas of the school after being explicitly taught what that looks like. Some awesome 4th graders taught the student body the actions for each habit. Each grade level also prepared and shared fun chants or cheers that go along with each of the 7 Habits of Happy Kids. Those video files have been posted on our school's YouTube channel - click here to check them out. Following the cheers - each class released a balloon that contained their class mission statement - symbolizing and communicating to the world our commitment to internalize the Big 3 and become leaders of our own lives and learning. Music was playing, kids were enjoying otter-pops, and danced around with their classmates and teachers in a celebratory fashion. It was a high-energy and memorable event!
