Accelerated Reader Celebration

We held our end of year Accelerated Reader Celebration, honoring students for reaching their reading goals this year.  Two students from each class were selected as "high flyers", earning recognition in front of the whole school... along with a book and a gift card for Chick-fil-a.  Also at the celebration, a variety of "animal-themed" items were raffled off to go along with our "I'm a Ro(AR)ing Reader" theme for the year.  And two lucky students went home with a Kindle Fire.  Later that afternoon, every student that met their reading goal every quarter this year was invited to our Popcorn & PJ Party with the Principal.  Take a look at the pictures below... 

Field Day

Another Field Day in the books, and it was a great time as always!  A special thanks goes to Mrs. Nagel, her Field Day Committee, and all the parent volunteers for making this such a wonderful tradition. If you weren't able to volunteer, take a look at the pictures below.  I'm sure you'll want to be a part of this fun day next year.
 
Congratulations to the yellow team for taking first place this year!  

At McClellan... We ROCK!

In February we introduced a School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention & Support plan (SWPBIS) to the students.  We wanted a systematic way to teach and reward positive behaviors, so we developed the following pledge:
 
 
For the whole month of May we focused on "K - Keep our hands and feet to ourselves".  Whenever students displayed this positive behavior, a staff member would give them a  "Rock Star Cash" coupon.  They would write their name on the cash and turn it in to the office.  We kept a separate collection bin for each grade level, and would ask the students  what they did to earn the cash before placing the cash in their bin.  At the end of the month, we picked 4 Rock Star Students from each grade.  Those 12 students enjoyed a Rock Star Luncheon with the principal (donated by McDonald's), and a Rock Star photo shoot.  We will keep their pictures up in our "Rock Star Hall of Fame" for the rest of the year.  
 
Our Rock Stars for May were:
Kindergarten - AJ Colaianni, Emma Razorsek, Carter Solivan, Addie English
Grade 1 - Kylie Phillis, Maguire McCafferey, Chase Riley, Nicco Salimbene
Grade 2 - Austin Hinkle, Maddy Oates, Emily Myers, Harper Burnstein
 
Check out their pictures below... 

Bring In Your Box Tops

The PTA will continue to collect Box Tops this year.  You do not have to attach them to a collection sheet like in years past.  Just send them in a baggie and your child can place them in the Box Top collection bin in their home room.
 
If you are wondering what types of products you can find Box Tops on, please click on the link below:
 
 
If you are wondering why we collect these, please watch the video of our students below;
 
 
The winner for the March collection was Miss Hense's class with 249 Box Tops.
