Video Announcements

  • What a great first week with 5th graders back in the building. You are doing a wonderful job of displaying Knights Honor in the classroom, hallways, cafeteria, and recess. Keep up the good work!

  • Attention 5th graders! You are invited to a virtual game of Bingo on Tuesday, February 9th after school from 4-5.  You will be playing with your WEB leaders at your home on a Google Meet. Check out your WEB Google Classroom to reserve your spot!

  • Boys Basketball starts on Monday, February 8th. You will meet your coaches in Gym 1 at East at 3:15 and practice will go until 4:45pm. Please plan for a ride to pick you up after practice. You can find more information on the Boys Basketball website or by checking in with me, Mrs. Schleicher.

  • There will be a Student Council meeting next Wednesday, February 10th from 8:15 - 8:45 am. The meeting will be in Mrs. Gritti's room for 5th graders, and the Google Meet link will be in the Student Council Google Classroom for 6th-8th graders. It will be in person for 5th grade, and then virtual for 6th-8th grade. 

  • Student Council is hosting their annual winter fundraiser! This year's theme is Acts of Kindness. All you need to do is be kind, film a quick flipgrid video about your act of kindness, and then wait to see if your name is drawn. You can find the flipgrid in the attendance Google Classroom. Please make sure you state your name, grade, and describe your act of kindness when filming your flipgrid. You're welcome to submit as many videos as you like! If your name is drawn, you will get to choose from a few different local places to donate to. The flipgrid will close on Friday, February 12th, and the winners will be announced on Wednesday, February 17th. If we get enough submissions, there will be school-wide activities as well. See Mrs. Lindquist or Mrs. Gritti if you have any questions!

  • There will be no Jazz or Pep Band on Monday, February 8 due to parent-teacher conferences. We will now meet in the mornings before school starting at 8:15am. Jazz Band will meet Tuesday, February 16 and Pep Band will meet Friday, February 19. See you then!

  • Here is your Friday Favorites Question: What’s your favorite thing to do after school?

  • The hot lunch option is cheese bites, marinara, green beans, and a fruit cup. The cold lunch option is bento box PBJ sandwich with baby carrots, celery sticks, and a fruit cup. Both lunch lines will offer the same options, and lunches are free for all enrolled students.

  • Attention 5th graders: The wind chill today is below zero, so we will be indoors for recess. Indoor recess will be in your classroom. Please continue to maintain social distance, keep personal devices put away, and follow the rules of your classroom. If your SEL group has not planned what you can do during indoor recess, please take a moment to do so this morning. Team A will eat lunch first and then return to their classrooms for recess. Team B will stay in their rooms for recess and then go to lunch.

 

Have a great day!
