Spotlight on Team Imagination

First Graders on Team Imagination have been studying author William Steig while simultaneously working on inferring. Students have really enjoyed listening to his vocabulary rich stories and their exciting and bizarre problems. Many of his stories have elements of magic and humor laced throughout and these commonalities help kids to use their prior knowledge along with the text clues to make thoughtful predictions and infer beyond the text.
This is what some Imagination friends have to say about their favorite Steig books:  Connor "One of my favorite parts (The Amazing Bone) is when the fox can fit in a mouse hole. Lyla "Amos and Boris is a good book because I like it when Amos saves Boris." Jackson "I like it when Solomon's mother threw him into the garbage can because he was in the form of a rusty nail." (Solomon The Rusty Nail)  Hailey "My favorite part in Brave Irene is when Irene gets to the ball because she is right and the Duchess likes the dress."

Dance tonight (Friday May 4th) for Grades 4, 5 & 6

The dance is tonight in the cafeteria from 6:00-8:00pm hosted by The Voyagers Team. It's $3 per student.

Arrival and Dismissal from Dances

Students enter through the gymnasium doors and sign themselves into the dance.

School Expectations (Safe, Achieving, Caring) remain at all
evening events and that includes dances.

Dismissal from dances
 At the end of our dances chaperones and staff will walk students through the
building to our front lobby. We will dismiss from there.

After all the parking lot changes we have noticed that the flow of traffic is
natural and more light is provided. Safety is important and this change will
be safer for all participants.

Please be prompt for pick up as staff and chaperones need to get home
too. If your student does not have a ride home please don’t send them
to our dances unless they have made arrangements before coming to the
