For the first time, Elementary South will host a Cape-Abilities Over Disabilities Week, March 11-15, to underscore the school’s embrace of learning differences. Each day, students will engage in different activities and events, ranging from walking in someone else’s shoes, reflections and the opportunity to play adaptive sports. During art classes, students will be making special capes, which they will all wear together on Friday, the final day of this special week.

For Black History Month, third-grade students at Elementary South put together awesome, mosaic posters of historical figures such as Jackie Robinson, Muhammad Ali, Ruby Nell Bridges Hall and Nelson Mandela. The posters are in the hallway for everyone to see.

Fourth-grade students at Elementary South, including students in Ms. Dahm’s class, dressed up in togas and sandals on Tuesday, as part of a First Person Greek Mythology Project. Each student had an opportunity to stand before the class and talk about the unique personality traits and lives of the gods they represented. Through wonderful costumes and performances, those old Greek gods we rarely hear about today, suddenly came to life.
Elementary South and Aspen Elementary’s fourth and fifth grade band concert on Tuesday showed just how far students have come this year. They played beautifully.
The Tooth Fairy, along with eight dental students from First Institute in Libertyville, visited Ms. Bleck’s first-grade class at Elementary South. The dental assistants taught the students how to floss and brush away “sugar bugs”. In the meantime, the Tooth Fairy sprinkled fairy dust, wishing the students good teeth and good dreams.
Several second grade classrooms at Elementary South held a Math Carnival last week. This special event took place at the end of a unit on counting money. The students created games at home and then made signs at school about how much their games cost. The carnival gave the students the chance to practice their math skills while having great fun.
Elementary South held a “Stand in Your Power” workshop for fifth-grade girls on February 8. During the interactive hour, the girls learned to use tools to help them in challenging situations, such as feeling excluded, coping with mean girls and queen bees, and friendship cliques. One of the things they learned was to take a step back from friendship drama by being more grounded in themselves. In the meantime, fifth-grade boys learned skills through fun activities that emphasized camaraderie and teamwork. The school also held a “Stand in Your Power” workshop for parents, to help them know what to say when their daughters needed help.
When the dragon starts dancing down the hall, you know what time of year it is. Students at Elementary South celebrated the Chinese Lunar New Year with a colorful parade through the halls of the school on Feb. 5. Many thanks to Mrs. Yeo and Mr. Messina for organizing such a fun event.
Fifth-grade student Pablo B. is currently undefeated with a record of 13-0. This past weekend, Pablo won the Eighth Grade Invitational Marlowe Classic. He was also nominated for outstanding wrestler of the tournament.
