READING OLYMPIC RESULTS
Shared by: whitecheese
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE As fall approaches, in come all the changes of the new season; the colors of the leaves, cooler weather and shorter days, the packing up of the crocs and shorts and taking out of sweaters and pants. There are plenty of changes going on at our school as well. Students feel more comfortable walking the hallways and buying their lunch and kindergarteners are coming off the bus looking like they have been coming here for years. It’s only been one month - just imagine how they will be 6 months from now! Their handwriting is becoming a bit neater, their reading stronger, and choice of colors to create pictures and paintings more brilliant; making whatever they created come to life. Our school also got a face-lift, with new flowers and vegetable beds for every class, new murals at the school entrance, a beautiful rock wall and plants for our school sign (Thank you Sedlak Family!) and coming soon - a large mural on the side of the building. There is a lot going on with the PTO too! We kicked off the year with a KidStuff/Entertainment fundraiser, awards for summer reading, class pictures, and back by popular demand, the GOLDEN LUNCHBOX! Planning for the Halloween Hoopla is underway with games, prizes and a NEW Haunted House theme. We held our first 2 meetings of the year and all were received with great enthusiasm. We hope that every child comes home with READING OLYMPIC RESULTS a positive attitude and fun stories to tell you at the end of each day. Overall Winner Zachary Seigal Change is good!
