Mrs. Bormann's Third Grade Class has taken the lead on this exciting program. The Crayola ColorCycle program is devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills! The ColorCycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in the United States and Canada since 2013. They use the most advanced plastic conversion technologies available today to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food and power vehicles. Please help support our efforts by sending used markers, even non-Crayola brands! Highlighters and dry erase markers can also be included. A drop off box will be located in Room 7 for the students to deposit the markers! Thank you Mrs. Bormann and her amazing class for taking the lead on such a special and worthwhile project.

I am so proud of all of our children as they took part in and learned so much centered around the theme of KINDNESS. Thank you to our faculty and staff for the hard work and effort in planning for a week long celebration of KINDNESS and modeling for our children how important being kind truly is. Our motto "Work Hard, Be Kind" is hung up prominently in our foyer. It's a simple but beautiful message that our children will take with them forever. Below is a summation of what each grade level worked on during the week of Kindness. Thank you for your continued support at home in developing children that truly WORK HARD and are KIND!
Congratulations to Mrs. Jerue's class for winning the class competition for raising the most money. It is our biggest fundraiser for the year and we appreciate all the support from our families. Mrs. Jerue's class enjoyed a nice pizza party to celebrate their achievement.
Thank you to Mrs. Biggins for entering a number of our students into the "Spooky Sagas" writing contest. The challenge was to get their story to fit within 100 words. Congratulations boys and girls. Your stories were fantastic!!
On Tuesday, September 11th, our 4th and 5th grade students took part in our annual Memorial Assembly honoring those who passed away on September 11, 2001. Our 5th graders lit candles, listened to a reading of the Gettysburg Address and sat in quiet reflection during the time together. Attached is our program and pictures from the day.
