Field Day
Our Second Annual Field Day was a huge success.  After postponing it over the weekend, we had a fabulous day of fun.  Thank you to the PTA for all of their planning and all of the volunteers that helped to make such a great event for our kids.  Take a look at the video that Mr. Dobos put together using the drone that the PTA purchased for our school...

Video Game Truck Visit
Mrs. Thomas's fourth grade math classes worked on a project to create a video game truck.  They had to figure out costs of operation, design a truck, and create a name and slogan.  Also, they had to create posters for the teachers to vote on, and made it sort of like a "Shark Tank" competition.  Mr. Liberatore surprised them by bringing in a guest "shark", Brad Michaelson, the owner of Steel City Gamerz.  Take a look at the pictures below...
Entomology
Mr. Gore, a parent in our school and an entomologist, visited our fourth grade science classes.  He brought his specimen display cases, edible insects, and some live bugs (including hissing cockroaches - which the students raced).  Take a look at the fun below...
VR in 2nd Grade
Mrs. Jakubowski's class finally got to experience their reward for winning the Dime War... a visit from Mr. Liberatore with the OCULUS Virtual Reality cart (purchased by the PTA).  Students got to chose a 3-point shooting contest, or to be a goalie in a hockey shootout.  Check out a few of the pictures below...
Kids of Steel
Our McClellan students and family members that came out Saturday morning for the Kids' Marathon really earned the title of "Kids of Steel".  It was a cold, wet morning... but everyone had a great time!  Take a look at the 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 PTA has placed a race car bulletin board up in our hall and are tracking our totals for each classroom.
FIM Teams of the Month - May
Each month the students at McClellan Elementary School compete to earn stickers on First In Math, a website that encourages math practice and skill building.  At the end of each month, the top three teams with the most earned stickers that month receive a trophy.  Sometimes classes hold onto the trophy all year long, while other times we honor new champions.  Check back each month to see our new Teams of the Month... 
 
*Congratulations to the whole second grade for taking over all three of the top spots last month!!! 
Artist of the Month - May
Each month, Mrs. Bowser selects 2 artists of the month from each grade level.  Please take a look at the wonderful artwork from this past month...
