Students earning their "Bee Your Best" certificate for the month of December celebrated with a dance party with their teachers! We are proud of how many students continue to put forth their best selves, and we are happy to celebrate with them!
The Leprechaun Foundation Holiday Stockings Project took place this week with all students helping to create beautiful works of art. Organized by retired teacher Elaine Gladysz., stockings are created by parent volunteers (150 of them), while parent helpers guide students in decorating the stockings. Families and staff members provide "stuffing" items for the stockings which are presented to children who are hospitalized locally during the holiday season. This project is a Chippewa tradition!
Students had the opportunity this week to shop for their families and friends at the Holiday Shoppe organized and run by the Chippewa PSO. All gifts were priced at $2 each, making the shop a reasonable way for the students to shop on their own and enjoy the holiday fun! PSO parents also organized a wrapping station so student purchases were all set to put under the tree!
The Hour of Code has arrived! Students in grades K-3 will participate in this world-wide event focused on the computer sciences with a special emphasis on creativity. While this is an event to raise awareness of the computer sciences, students will be encouraged to continue practicing coding through a variety of venues throughout the year.
Our third grade students performed the holiday musical "Flakes" for students and staff. They will perform again for their families and friends at our high school auditorium. The third graders, under the direction of our music teacher, Mrs. Ferguson, practiced long and hard for the performance, and it was enjoyed by all!
Second grade students are learning about differences between then and now with a look at games, manners, and doll making from colonial days.
Kindergarten students learn about Thanksgiving, pilgrims traveling on the Mayflower, and Native Americans through center activities.
