Let’s Spread Kindness! - One of our 6th graders, Micah F., was blessed with a baby sister in December. In an effort to demonstrate compassion and kindness amongst our students, Mr. Kiecker, Mrs. Wait, and Mr. Stelter would like to shower this family with diapers and/or monetary donations. We will have a SECRET diaper drive over the course of the next two school weeks - Monday, 1/14-Friday, 1/25. Micah is unaware of the diaper drive...so help us keep this a secret! Diapers of varying sizes and/or monetary donations can be dropped off in Mrs. Wait’s classroom before or after school. Any monies collected will go toward gift cards for the family. Thank you for encouraging compassion and kindness!
Science Fair - The Science Fair is Friday, 2/1, and Sunday, 2/3. Mr. Stelter sent home a parent information note prior to Christmas break and students received more detailed information in class this week. Ask your student about it!
