Students have spent the past two weeks designing and making holiday cards to send to Mr. Allen and his current military group. During Success enrichment time, a different group of students wrote letters in these cards, expressing their thanks to our soldiers and wishing them a safe holiday.  Thanks to the folks who donated scrapbooking supplies to make the cards, and thanks to the many students who helped in this process!

Students in Mrs. Fisher and Mr. Ringler's social studies classes are researching and finding their own historic twin.  Working with Mrs. Eberhardt, Teacher Librarian, students have determined their own dreams and goals, taken a personality quiz to find strengths and weaknesses, and are now reading about different heroes in history to find their match. Our goal is that our students learn that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, abilities and challenges, and everyone is able to pursue dreams and make a difference.
