Safety Patrol is a group of students that are selected by teachers for having good grades, excellent attendance, and fabulous character.
They come to school early each day (6:45 - 7:00 a.m.) to be on their post when the doors open. They greet the bus riders at the front doors, open car doors in the back, help pre-K/kinders get to their spots, deliver mail to teachers, and any other needed jobs in the morning. Throughout the day they deliver snacks, notes to go home, etc. if needed. At the end of the day, they are in charge of getting groups to their designated areas and taking roll. The students are a fabulous bunch who work very hard and love helping others!
We have 10 officers from grades 4, 5 & 6 that help lead the two organizations. We do all events together. We have meetings as needed. Each of the upper level classes has a class representative -- one for each club to help out when we have big projects.
We have worked on a Mitten/Scarf/Glove Drive, a Food Drive, a Thanksgiving Feast (we all eat popcorn and draw/write about things we are thankful for on the brown paper carpet in the hallway as a school). We also do Candygrams for the holidays. We go caroling and thank our businesses that support our school in December and pass out cards that the kids create.
In elementary grade art classes, students will explore many different aspects of visual art. Students will let their creativity flow by engaging in activities such as drawing and painting with various materials. They also learn art vocabulary, explore the work of many different artists and art movements, and learn to appreciate art as it enhances our world.
In elementary grade music classes, students will learn and practice the basic fundamental elements of music such as sound, melody, harmony, rhythm, and expression (dynamics, tempo, articulation). Students will engage in singing, playing instruments, responding to music with movement, and connecting with various cultures through music. These classes will help students develop creativity, self-expression, and problem-solving while creating music together as a team. These classes will also provide students with performance opportunities, which will help them develop a sense of ensemble, tolerance, perseverance, and rigor—enabling them to be well-rounded citizens of our global society.

The library loves readers! We love to celebrate reading by rewarding scholars who turn in reading logs.
