Mrs. Walker’s Blog Bits: November Turns Into December

Technology Club

I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, are well rested and ready to learn.  There are officially 19 school days until winter break and we have tons of fun activities planned. 

We have been doing many exciting things during the past few weeks:

  • Mrs. Hucker’s class honored veterans by having breakfast for students and their guests.
  • Mrs. Moorehead’s class celebrated the end of the quarter by reading in “Camp Read A Lot.”
  • All students learned about the character traits of: TRUSTWORTHINESS, FAIRNESS, RESPECT, CARING, RESPONSIBILITY, and CITIZENSHIP during an assembly titled, Character Magic.  The presenter, Pat Ireland, was featured for several years on PBS in the television show, Weird Science.  I am sure many of our parents may remember that after school special. 
  • 5th grade students are working hard running the school’s RECYCLING Program.  We have a recycling dumpster located at the back of the building by the bus loop.  Feel free to use it for your personal recycling.  Remember that it can ONLY take paper… no cardboard, boxes, plastics, etc.  The money collected from our recycling project will help fund the 5th grade Camp Kern trip.
  • Mr. Crandall has been working hard with the 4th and 5th grade after school chorus.  They will be performing at 7:00 on December 21st.
  • Mrs. Evans and Miss Van Eman have started a before school technology club.  These students will learn valuable computer skills and will even help the school with technology needs and projects.
  • Parent Teacher Conferences were a success.  We thank all of our parents for giving us time to discuss the progress of your students.  Feel free to contact you teacher any time with questions or concerns.  If you are in need of contact information, click on the CONTACT INFO tab on the top of the blog site.
  • Our last PTA meeting was held on November 15th.  We had another large turnout.  I invite you to join us on January 10th at 6:30 in order to discuss programs and opportunities  for our AE students. 

Lastly, I would like to wish Mrs. Wells (kindergarten), Mrs. Hucker (3rd grade) and Mrs. Smith (special education) wonderful birthdays as they are celebrating another year this week.  🙂

  1. Is the technology club open to all students or just a certain grade?

    • Mrs. Hawthorne,
      Currently the club is for 5th grade students. This is new to us this year and we wanted to see the demand and success for such a club. Thanks for asking and I will post additional information if we eventually open it up to other grades.
      Have a great day.
      Stephanie
