McClellan Pajama Drive

This year, we once again participated in the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive.   Over the past two weeks students brought in new pajamas for those less fortunate.  For every pair of pajamas donated through the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive,
Scholastic Book Clubs donates a brand-new book to Pajama Program kids.  The pajama drive is organized in partnership with Pajama Program, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and supporting a comforting bedtime routine for children affected by instability in order to help them thrive.  For more information, feel free to visit:   http://www.scholastic.com/pajamadrive/
 
Thank you for all the families that sent in PJs to support this wonderful outreach program.  This year our students donated 169 pairs of pajamas, and our top donating class (Mrs. Fazekas - 1st grade - room 107) brought in 25 pairs!!!  They will earn a PJ day on Friday, December 14.  Check back to see a picture... 

New Swing Set

For a few weeks now, there has been some construction going on by our playground.  First there was a digger removing some grass, then there were some men drilling holes into the ground, then there were some big blue poles cemented into the holes, then the mulch was put in place, and finally the swings were hung.  A special thanks for our PTA and district maintenance for getting the new swing set installed on our playground.  They students couldn't wait to get out there!

McClellan Elementary Holiday Show

The McClellan Elementary Holiday Show was Friday, December 7, at 9:30 AM and 1:30 PM.  Thank you to all the parents and family members that came out to support our students.  The show was fabulous, and all of the students did a wonderful job.  Also a special thank you to all of our staff that helped pull off this amazing show, especially Mrs. Davidson (our music teacher).

NEW THIS YEAR...  Thanks to Mr. Betler (TJHS) and our technology department, I was able to set up a LiveStream channel for our concert (McClellan TV).  If you weren't able to attend, the AM and PM show are archived on our LiveStream site.

PTA Assembly

On Friday, November 9, we had an awesome assembly from our PTA.  The Pittsburgh Pirates and Chick Fil A teamed up to help our students learn about health and nutrition.  They also got a little workout in and played a trivia game.  A number of students went home with some really nice gifts, and all students won a free Pirates ticket and free Chick Fil A nuggets!  Check out 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.
