Empathy? What’s Empathy?

Having empathy means putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and feeling as they do. Thank you, Mrs. Barnett for a lesson on Empathy. The first grade is showing empathy by collecting food for the food pantry. Can you help us?

Catch Me If You Can!

Catch me if you can! MRs. Luhman read Gingerbread Baby by Jan Bret. Students made their own gingerbread babies from bread, wowbutter, raisins, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and colored sprinkles. Don’t you wonder if we got to eat them before they ran away?

Thanks to all of our Veterans!

During the Veterans Day assembly the veterans told us about the history of the day, folded a flag while telling what each fold means, and played taps. The first grade signed The Pledge of Allegiance!

Let’s Listen!

to many great guest readers for Family Reading Week! We appreciate all of the great books! Look on the reading page for more guest readers!

Only One You

The high school art club visited on Friday, November 10th to do an art project with the elementary students in first thru third grade. They began the presentation with a story called Only One You. Next, they helped student create drawings of fish to be painted on their rocks. The rocks will be placed in the garden area in front of our school. A special thanks to art teacher, Ms. Locke, and student, Megan Ulrichs, for setting up this creative experience for our students!

Are you kind?

Our virtue this month is kindness. Mrs. Barnett visited the first grade classrooms to talk about what it means to be kind. Our service project for the month is to create cards to be sent to a veterans home.

Mrs. Luhman’s November Visit

Mrs. Luhman talked about many foods served for Thanksgiving dinner. She concentrated on turkey, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin. We enjoyed a pumpkin pudding snack!
