The Squad for Kindness would like to thank Explorers for celebrating moments of kindness with us.  Thank you Makenzie, who was chosen at random to represent all the students that were caught being kind.  Makenzie was honored for helping Mrs. Speakerman to clean up the boots in the hall without being asked.

Other Explorers students we would like to recognize are:  Luke, Nate, Meredith, Jessica, and Brianna


Voyagers and Kindergarten (Williams) Played in the Surprising April Snow
Undeterred by the snow/slush on Thursday 4-7-2016, these students headed out for a romp during recess.  The school's snow tubes had already been stored for the winter, or it would have been tempting to put them out.  Warm temperatures melted off half the snow by midday.

Walking Wednesday Results
87 students and 13 Adults came to school on Walking Wednesday 4-6-2016. This works out to 12% of the student population.  Here is what the data looks like for the school year of Walking Wednesdays when placed into a bar graph.  We have five more Walking Wednesdays left in the school year and four of them take place in May.

Notice:  Girls on the Run will NOT be meeting on April 25th and 27th or during Learning Showcase week.  Girls on the Run will resume on May 9th.

Oranges are for snacks today
Oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C. They are also a very good source of dietary fiber. In addition, oranges are a good source of B and A vitamins, and minerals calcium, copper, and potassium.

It is healthier to consume oranges as a whole fruit rather than in the form of orange juice. Whole fruits contain more fiber and less sugar and calories than juice -a win for your health.
