Greetings!  Thank you to all of our families participating in this year’s Read-A-Thon!  Results will be announced this Thursday at Family Literacy Night!  We look forward to a great night filled with family fun!  Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for registration followed by stations from 6:00-7:00 p.m.  After stations, plan to join us in the elementary gym for our closing ceremonies!  Sure to be a great time! 

Our 4th Grade students will be heading out to Blind Pony Conservation Area on Thursday, November 9th to restore grasslands!  Students have been learning about habitats and pollination in the classroom.  We appreciate being able to assist our local Quail Forever and Pheasant Forever Chapters.

Our Veteran’s Day Assembly is this Friday, November 10th.  We invite any and all Veteran’s to join us and be honored during our celebration.  Our assembly will also include our elementary students performing various skits, songs, and read alouds.  THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR VETERANS FOR YOUR SERVICE!!!!! 

Our 5th Grade students will again be visiting the Sweet Springs Villa on Tuesday, November 21st.  Students have an opportunity to share stories about what they are thankful for and read aloud to residents.  Lots of smiles and laughs are a guarantee and we look forward to giving back to our community.  Our Grandparent’s Day program will be held on Tuesday, November 21st.  We are excited to welcome our grandparents!

 Our Habit of the Month is Think Win-Win.  We spotlight our student leaders on our “Our Pawsitive Behavior Rocks! board.  As always, if there are ever questions or concerns, I am happy to discuss them with you.  My email is or by calling the elementary office at 660-335-6348.
