Newsletter 9-20

What a fun, productive week!  Thanks to all the families for their support with the Jog-a-thon and to the students for their school spirit and their performances out on the race course today.  This week, our class learned a plethora of new information during our name research presentations.  Students were asking on-topic questions and providing compliments to Name Research presenters.   Our class was so excited to meet their Middle School buddies!  They even had an opportunity to interview their buddies and collaborate on creating Jog-a-thon signs.

Congratulations to our Star Student of the Week:  Maisie Kindred

Hooray, we did it! Our class earned 50 Positive Poms! Great job, and stay tuned for details about the Positive Pom reward.
