  • Attention 5th graders, we are looking forward to seeing virtually at 4 o'clock for our WEB bingo game! If you were in school Monday, you have a bingo card that was handed out during SEL.  If you are distance learning, you should have gotten an email with a card.  We are looking forward to playing bingo with you this afternoon.  Just hop online with the link we've provided in Google Classroom.  See you then!

  • There will be a Student Council meeting 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!

  • The hot lunch option is chicken alfredo with penne pasta, steamed broccoli, garlic breadstick, and mixed fruit. The cold lunch option is a bento box southwest chicken salad with fritos and diced pears. Both lunch lines will offer the same options, and lunches are free for all enrolled students.

  • Attention 5th graders: The temperature 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 B will eat lunch first and then return to their classrooms for recess. Team A will stay in their rooms for recess and then go to lunch. Students that are in their ALB classes before lunch will return to the pod for recess.

Have a great day!
