Purple Pinky Day
On Thursday, February 26th and Friday February 27th, the Spanos Interact Club raised money to help end polio which is a crippling and possibly fatal disease. Rotary and our Interact Club raised money, 25 cents at a time, to help. Students who donated received a raffle ticket for the chance to win a huge, stuffed dog.
Polio is incurable but it is easy to prevent. A child can be vaccinated at a cost of just 60 cents which will protect the child for life.
Polio has been eliminated in all but three countries. Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria.
Why is it called Purple Pinkie? When a child is vaccinated, they have a purple stamp put on their little finger so they know the child has been vaccinated.
Our Spanos Chargers raised $310.42!!! Enough money to vaccinate 516 kids! Thank you everyone for your support.
40 Book Challenge
Dashaila has read so many books this school year! She has far surpassed the 40 book challenge. She has read over 100 books this school year... and it's only January ! Congratulations to Dashaila .
Little Free Library
"Take a book. Return a book." That is the motto of the Little Free Library Organization. Members of our Interact Club created a Little Free Library in the nearby laundry mat, hoping to encourage and support our community in reading more books. It wasn't long after the books were organized that two children visiting the laundry mat with their mother, quickly found a book to enjoy! We look forward to more children and adults enjoying a good book.
Our 4th and 5th grade students competed in our annual Math Mixer. The students worked in teams and rotated through four stations to solve mathematical problems. The teams earned points for cooperation, manners, and accuracy. The top scoring team from each class earned personal trophies and the highest performing class earned the perpetual trophy. Congratulations to Mrs. Conklin and Ms. Hymes’ classes!
School Hours 7:40 a.m. to 1:40 p.m.
Office Hours 7:15a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Please continue to collect and turn in your box tops to your child's teacher.
