radKIDS Graduation

Submitted by jeanette.maughan on
The radKIDS program is an incredible program, it is amazing to see how the kids learn and grow and watch them become confident as they come to realize that they are IMPORTANT and that NO ONE has the right to hurt them -it doesn't matter if they know the person not, or if the person is 5 years old or 105, no one has the right to hurt them and they can stop them.  I truly believe that they are learning valuable life saving skills as well as what to do in different situations from being bullied, what to do in a fire, gun safety, dog attacks, out and about safety, how and when to call 9

They are Going to the Zoo

Submitted by jeanette.maughan on

Kindergartener's thrill family and friends with a Zoo Program.  This program is always held the day before the field trip to the Zoo. The theme song is of course, "Teacher's Taking us to the Zoo Tomorrow".  Each student becomes a zoo animal or zookeeper as they entertain and educate the audience.  Thank you for a great show!

Parents, Pastries and Crazy Hats

Submitted by jeanette.maughan on

The finale to Dr. Seuss Week was fantastic.  It started out early in the morning, reading in the halls of the school while munching on delicious donuts.  It continued all day long.  Every time a "crazy hat" came into view, we were reminded how "crazy important" it is to read.

Veterans and Valentines

Submitted by jeanette.maughan on

Giving service makes you feel happy.  That's the lesson that Ms. Nilson helped her first graders realize.  They made Valentines for the Veterans this year.  In response, they were given a certificate.  It's nice to be recognized for the nice things you do, it's even nicer to have that warm good feeling.
