One Life, Six Words, What's Yours?

Inspired by Ernest Hemingway's famous six-word tale, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn," six word stories serve as a way for students to summarize succinctly and cleverly. Mrs. Chausow's English classes recently completed their own works and are displaying them in the hall for all to ponder.

Clothing Drive Brings Rewards

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 09/08/2015 - 14:21

The PTA sponsored clothing drive at the end of August was a wild success! We took in over 1,600 pound of clothing of which 821 pounds were donated by the 7th grade class alone! As a result, the 7th grade class won the opportunity to participate in a Den Time game of HUMAN HUNGRY HIPPOS. We are proud of all the students who took the time to bring in clothing that was ultimately donated for our community. Thank you, students and GO GO GRIZZLIES!

Latinos In Action (LIA) is practicing to tutor students at Park View Elementary School. We are learning the level of kids and what level of books they should be reading and we are having fun reading to each other to practice for the kids. All of us are very excited to go help all the little kids that need our help at Park View. So we will keep practicing until we are ready to go!

What Happens On The First Day Of School?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 08/19/2015 - 16:42

Students are adjusting in many ways as we start the 2015-2016 school year. There are lockers to be opened, classrooms to be found, and lunch to be eaten. One student was heard today saying, "I can smell the food, I just can't find it!"

Teachers, veteran students, and other staff help open lockers and point the way, giving directions to each classroom. We are all building relationships with each other whether we are the teacher, the lunch lady, or someone we already know. We are all getting to know each other, and it's fun! We are looking forward to a great school year!
