Last week was an exciting week for students in Room 15. Thank you to all families who contributed Box Tops to our classroom. Our class won the Box Top Contest! We had a hot chocolate party on Friday. Our class also won the Behavior Assembly Trophy for excellent behavior during the Star Student Assembly. The students in Room 15 continually impress me with their respectful, responsible, kind behavior as well as their team work.
We are currently working on several art projects for our Annual Art Show, April 19th. Students are working on completing a mixed media collage of an animal. Spring Creek is fortunate to Alex Lanham as an Artist in Residence. He is teaching students portraiture on tiles. I am excited to see all of the students creations!
At the beginning of the year I read the book Wonder aloud to the class. We watched the movie last week. The book and movie focus on a child who is born with a severe facial deformity and his 5th grade experience. The message of both is to “Choose Kind” in all areas of life. We will video chat with a young man, Jonathan Siebert, who has a similar story and has faced similar challenges. It is my hope that students will head into Middle School with empathy and compassion for their peers.
This Friday is Spring Creek’s Spaghetti/Bingo Night starting at 5:30. Tuesday, March 13th we will go to the Hult Center to watch the BEST After School Students perform with the Eugene Symphony. Lastly, please mark your calendars. Spring Break is from 3/26/18-4/2/18. Students will return to school on April 3rd.
