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.
Elementary South congratulates and thanks first grade teacher Jeanne Bleck. She received a $700 check Friday from Target Field Trips Grants Program through Scholarship America. She applies for this every year to make it possible for the entire first grade class to attend the field trip to Heller Nature Center in Highland Park.
Elementary South and Aspen Elementary fourth and fifth grade combined orchestra gave a concert last week. The students gave an awesome performance.
Friday was a special day at Elementary South. In every class, students in comfortable pajamas read books for their annual 2019 seconds of reading (33 minutes). Here are photos from Ms. Silver’s kindergarten class.
Elementary South’s Spelling Bee took place Jan. 10. Students showed nerves of steel as they carefully spelled out difficult words. Congratulations to the winner: fifth-grade student Allison S. in Mrs. Worden’s class, and to the runner up: fourth-grade student Jared F. in Mrs. Schorsch’s class. The winning word was visionary.
