If you’re going to have a 5-day school week, this is the way to end it! What a spectacular time we had on the Sternwheeler Friday. Along with perfect weather, the kids behaved wonderfully. The chaperones were on top of everything and the Sternwheeler folks were informative and friendly.
In other news, our economics unit took a realistic turn as all of the children became employees. Each child was assigned a job that pays a whopping 1$ per day. If children perform their duties well, they get paid. If their work is shoddy, they risk not getting any income. This is real life on a small scale. Some children are choosing to keep their money in the bank and some are choosing to keep track of it themselves. We’ll be learning (probably the hard way) that only money in a bank is insured. Over the next couple weeks, the classroom store will open up and kids will have to make some tough decisions about how and if to spend their money.
The music programs were spectacular, weren’t they? The kids looked so adorable all dressed up. Their singing and composure on the risers was spectacular! Thank you for helping them feel special and honored by coming to this special event.
The district is hosting an informational session about the upcoming school bond. Please join us this Wednesday at 6pm to hear firsthand what the bond means.
