Ms. Dahm at Elementary South used Thanksgiving as a way to develop her students’ math skills. The fourth-grade students reviewed grocery advertisements to select what they would be including in their Thanksgiving dinners. They had fun putting together lists of food items and adding up the costs based on the number of guests attending their dinners.
Elementary South raised $2,091.86 during its “All For Books” collection this past week! The money will go directly to our teachers to purchase books for their classrooms. Scholastic also matches the funds raised by each participating school with a donation of books from The Scholastic Possible Fund, which distributes books to children through various not-for-profit organizations.
- Kindergarten – Ms. Dingman
- 1st – Mrs. Bleck
- 2nd – Mrs. Dimond
- 3rd – Mrs. Arenson
- 4th – Mrs. Studer
- 5th – Ms. Worden
Blankets can be a source of comfort and security for children in crisis. First-grade students at Elementary South made colorful blankets to comfort critically ill or traumatized children as part of the Project Linus-Kids Helping Kids Program. A representative from Project Linus visited the school on Tuesday, showed sample blankets, and provided tips on creating the squares for the blankets. Then the students went back to their classrooms and drew hearts, happy faces and other comforting pictures on squares that will be made into blankets. The blankets will be donated to local organizations such as Alexian Brothers, A Safe Place, and Zacharias Center.
Congratulations to our October SOARING EAGLES! They SOAR above the line and make us proud.
