Amy Ramos, Reading Specialist, received a mini-grant from the West Spfd Partnership for Education: Literature That Includes Everybody. The goal of the project is to teach the fifth grade literacy curriculum integrating texts that reflect multiculturalism and diversity, yet also emphasize the “oneness” of us all. The project’s theme will increase awareness and acceptance of all people. Visit this link to learn more about Mrs. Radon’s inspiration to write this grant. See photo 1
Bill Preye, Technology Teacher, engaged students in the 2020 Doodle for Google contest. This year’s theme is “I show kindness by…” Acts of kindness bring more joy, light and warmth to the world. They cost nothing, but mean everything. Click this link to learn more about this contest. It wasn’t all that long ago that Mrs. Morneau’s former student, Harrison C. Sloat from Fausey Elementary School, was chosen as a finalist for the 2013 Doodle 4 Google. Even though he was not chosen as the winner, he did a fantastic job. Click here to see Harrison Sloat’s work.
Mrs. Gale, Fourth Grade Teacher, engaged students to learn about Benchmark Fractions in Math via a game that she designed, titled “Benchmark Island Quest.” In this game, students were tasked with “conquering more islands than your opponents to win the game.” What a fun way to learn! See photos 2 & 3.

As the seasons change, so does the weather; however, we will continue to go outside whenever possible (so long as the wind chill and/or temperature is not below 25 degrees). Please make sure your child dresses appropriately for outdoor recess. If you need any help outfitting your child with a winter coat, please reach out to our School Adjustment Counselor (email@example.com) or myself (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are happy to help secure a coat for your child.
