NOVEMBER "SHINE TIME" !
The November "Shine Time Morning Meeting" assembly was held on Tuesday, November 26. Each month we gather in the gym to celebrate all students who have earned STAR tickets by being safe, respectful and responsible. The meeting starts with a greeting, a sharing time and then an activity.
Following these activities, we draw 10 STAR tickets from each grade level and those students who STAR tickets are drawn have the opportunity to choose an extra incentive to participate in during the next month.
We also choose the classrooms that have earned the "Golden Trophy" in specific areas. Those classrooms have gone above and beyond with their behaviors in: PE, Music, Media, Chinese, Recess, Lunch and in keeping their classroom picked up at the end of the day.
Our November Golden Trophy winners are:
Golden recorder for Music: Mrs. Hjelmgren's class
Golden tennis shoes for PE: Ms. Myre's class
Golden globe for Chinese: Mrs. Gerschke's class
Golden vacuum for Custodial: Ms. Myre's class
Golden book for Media: Mr. Mancini's class
Golden lunch tray for lunch: Second Grade: Mrs. Adami, Mrs. Lichtscheidl and Ms. Pearl's classes
Golden football for recess: Fourth Grade: Ms. George & Ms. Myre's classes
Congratulations to these classrooms!
