Kids Helping Kids –
The fifth graders are trying to make a difference for one family whose 5 year old daughter is diagnosed with cancer. The kids will be selling hot chocolate and to raise money to buy Christmas gifts for the family of 7. Their goal is to be able to buy 3 gifts per child. To help reach their goal they will be selling hot chocolate on Tuesday and Wednesday next week after lunch. You can buy a cup for $1 before heading out for noon recess.

Cup Stacking - Most of our First through Eighth Grade students participated in World Sport Stacking Day this past Thursday. Throughout the day the gym was filled with active and enthusiastic students as cups were up stacked and down stacked in various patterns. We also had 10 adult volunteers who helped the event run very smoothly. We probably won’t know if a new world record has been set until after Thanksgiving.
If your child enjoyed our sport stacking unit and you’d like to purchase equipment for them please go to http://www.speedstacks.com/store/retail/. They normally have some good sales this time of year.
