Highlight of the Week
Coins For Change: PJ Day
Fifth grade student, Tes Scott, organized a school spirit day to raise money for mosquito nets to help prevent malaria in Africa.  Students and staff (and administrators!) who brought in loose change were able to wear their PJs all day.  We all certainly enjoyed being comfortable and supporting a great cause!  I am proud to share that we raised $672.00, which will purchase 14 nets! We thank Tes for organizing this fun and worthy event!

Kindergartners Test Gravity
Kindergarten students put the laws of gravity to the test on Friday when they did an egg drop.  The children were determined to protect their eggs and “not make them like humpty dumpty” by creating creative contractions that protected their eggs when dropped from the roof.  I was proud to see that thanks to our students, several eggs survived!
