Explorers Animal Rescue Project
Check this 1/2 minute video out:     Link to Video

The Explorers are collecting shoes for the animals at the Humane Society. In week one we collected and counted 64 shoes. By the end of week two we had a total of 118 shoes. We have been counting by 2's and using tally marks to keep track as we count! Keep the shoes coming in!!! Thank you!
Shoes will be donated to the Franklin County Animal Rescue and they will sell them to help raise money for the shelter. Shoes too small for you? Does your Mom, Dad Aunt, Uncle, Grandma, Grandpa have shoes in their closet that they don't wear anymore? BRING THEM IN! Every pair counts! We can come together as a school to help the animals in our community without homes! Students bring the shoes to Mrs. Halvorsen's Room.

Thanks a pawful lot.

P.S. Please ask your families first before you bring in shoes to donate.
These are actual photos of just some of the animals we can help.

Bike Repair Stand Workshop
On Thursday, October 27th at 3:15 PM there will be a BIKE REPAIR WORKSHOP. Because Mr. Allen and Mr. Craib want to introduce students to use of the outdoor bike repair stand, the workshop will be held outdoors. Consequently, the workshop will be weather dependent. We will inform you of any date changes if it is too cold or wet to hold the workshop on that day. There will a random drawing for a free bike lock for any student that participates.
  • Pump air into tires
  • Adjust brakes
  • Make sure seat height is appropriate
  • Make chain adjustments

Students may take two fruit servings with each meal. They must take at least one.
