Halloween Parade

We had our annual Halloween Parade on Thursday, October 31.  Unfortunately due to the weather, we had to hold it inside our building.  If you didn't get to watch it live on LiveStream, you can still click on the link below... 
 
 
Our McClellan TV channel will say "off air".  However, you can click on the "Halloween Parade 2019" video on the right hand side and watch the replay.  You can also take a look at some of the pictures below... 

RED RIBBON WEEK

National Red Ribbon Week is October 21-25.  To build the home-school connection, one activity we’d like parents to complete with your child is a “respect” bracelet.  Each colored bead represents a different theme, two of which go along with themes of Red Ribbon Week… BLUE- respecting your body and brains (by not doing drugs), and GREEN- making good choices (choosing to stay drug free).  Please click here to see the flyer to assist you in discussing these topics with your child as you build the bracelet together.  And please encourage them to wear it to school all week!

Don’t forget about the dress up day:

Red Ribbon Dress Up Days - 
Monday, Oct. 21:  I Pledge to Stay Drug Free - Wear Red
Tuesday, Oct. 22: I "Mustache" You Not To Do Drugs - Wear a mustache (drawn, painted, or stuck on)
Wednesday, Oct 23:  I Wake Up Everyday Drug Free - Wear Pajamas
Thursday, Oct. 24:  Don't be tricked ~ Drugs aren't a treat - wear a Halloween shirt
Friday, Oct. 25:  I know real heroes don't do drugs! - wear red, white and blue or camo to support our First Responders or Military Heroes

Star Wars Reads Month

A long time ago... in a galaxy far, far, away... someone thought it was a great idea to combine Star Wars with encouraging kids to read.  How genius!  Every Wednesday in October we've encouraged students to show their inner Jedi by wearing Star Wars gear (see some pictures below).  The PTA also sent home a daily reading log.  For each one the students turn in, they get a change at a stellar prize package.  If you need additional logs... click here
 
There were even some Star Wars characters that showed up at our Family Book Fair Night.  Needless to say, when the principal is away the Empire does play!  Check out some of the mischief they got into around the school in the pictures below. 

At McClellan... We ROCK!

One of the district initiatives is for every school to develop a School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention & Support plan (SWPBIS).  We wanted a systematic way to teach and reward positive behaviors, so we developed the following pledge:
 
Whenever students display one of the positive behaviors listed in our pledge, a staff member gives them a "ROCK Star Cash" coupon. The students write their name on it and place their cash coupons in a bin located in the school lobby.  At the end of each month, 4 ROCK Star Students are picked from each K-2 grade. Student photos are showcased in the school’s "Rock Star Hall of Fame" for the rest of the year.  Take a look at the winners for October below...

Earning For Learning

There are a number of ways other than selling fundraising items that can earn money for our school.  Please make sure you are taking part in the following programs:
 
Box Tops for Education
Apples for the Students (through Giant Eagle)
S.E.E.D. Program (through Shop 'n Save)
 
For more information on how to sign up for these, please click here to view the PTA flyer. 
Kindergarten Safe Snack List
Due to the later Kindergarten lunch schedule this school year, we are encouraging every child to bring a daily snack to be eaten between 10:00-11:00AM. Click here for the safe snack list and additional information. Thank you.

2019-2020 Car Rider Registration and Information

In order to ensure the safest and most efficient methods for student dismissal, the West Jefferson Hills School District is continuing to use a system at the elementary and intermediate schools for those students who are being picked up at the end of the school day.  The system will utilize car tags and backpack tags to identify students and ensure that they are released only to drivers who are approved to pick them up.  Click here for the registration form and letter.

Artists of the Month - October

Each month, Mrs. Bowser will select 3 artists of the month from each grade level.  One for "Creativity", one for "Craftmanship" and one for "Concept".  These are also the categories that the students will be graded on in Art this year.  Please check back each month to see what lucky winners will be adorning our halls...
