Wall of Honor
Mr. Steigerwald (5th Grade Language Arts) wanted to do a Veterans Day project with the 5th grade this year to pay tribute to veterans who have served in the Armed Forces in the past as well as those who are currently serving.  The students brought in a copy of a picture of any family member/family friend that has served or is serving in the United States Armed Forces, along with a brief bio of the person and their time in the military.  He opened it up to the whole school, and received an overwhelming number of honorees.  Take a look at the pictures of our "Wall of Honor" display below...
History Bowl
History Bowl Congratulations to our McClellan Elementary Team for taking 3rd place in the History Bowl at the Heinz History Center!  Our fifth grade team was comprised of James Hausman, Cara Vereb, Ellie Toma, and Jesse Mellor.  Way to go!!!
Geode Guy
Jeff Smith, "The Geode Guy", came to visit our 3rd grade.  He took our students on a virtual tour of an underground geode mine in Mexico, right from our cafeteria.  Not only did he show pictures and videos of his geode digs, the students also got the opportunity to see and feel a number of geodes first hand.  Then, students could purchase polished geodes to take home or have Mrs. Smith crack one open right on the spot!  The students were really excited!  Thank you to Mrs. Baleno, the third grade teachers, and the PTA for bringing this fabulous event to our kids!
Red Ribbon Week
We kicked off Red Ribbon Week on Monday having all students wear red.  On Tuesday, it was "Superhero" day.  Lucky for us we have some local superheroes (our first responders), that came in to spend lunch and recess with our students.  Wendesday was "Mix-Match" day and Thursday was "Favorite Team" day.  Check out all the fun pictures below...
Halloween Parade and Parties
Friday, October 27, we held our annual Halloween Parade and Parties.  The weather was just perfect for a march around the neighborhood.  If you couldn't make it up to the school today, take a look below at the fun we had...

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 PTA has placed a race car bulletin board up in our hall and are tracking our totals for each classroom.
Cycle Days
Today:  11/25/2017  
5-Day Schedule Cycle
The District has adopted a new 5-Day Schedule Cycle for all schools for the 2017-18 school year.
 Instead of referring to each school day as M,T, W, Th, and F, each day will be designated as either A, B, C, D or E. The schedule has been set for the entire school year, and the scheduled days will not change due to school cancellations. This new schedule will provide students with maximum instructional and support
 time for all core classes and specials during the
 school day. Students will no longer miss certain classes or additional instruction time due to school holidays or cancellations. Our goal is to provide
 greater
 consistency
 and
 predictability 
within
 the
 school
 day while maximizing learning for all students. For your convenience, the website will feature what cycle day we are on throughout the school year. To view the 5-Day Schedule Cycle for the entire school year, please click here.
Artist of the Month - October
Each month, Mrs. Bowser selects 2 artists of the month from each grade level.  Throughout the 2017-2018 School Year I will be posting those winners here on our website.
