We are so excited about our new program – Bears to Cubs. Some of our kindergartens need a little boost in phonics and reading. Our National Junior Honor Society members have signed up to provide that little boost. Under the direction of our reading interventionists, the NJHS members signed up to work with some kinders during the middle school recess time. Twice a week, they help the kinders learn the letters and sounds of the alphabet. The hallways are filled with the sound of “a – apple – /a/, b – bat – /b/, c – cat – /c/.
October’s service project is collection for Paul’s Pantry. Mrs. Waack’s fourth grade class took a field trip to Paul’s Pantry on World Food Day, October 16th. They, along with several other schools, celebrated a prayer service with the Bishop and helped with food distribution.
We welcome your donations through the month of October.
This is an event that we have held for almost 20 years. Girls who choose to get their hair cut donate 10 inches of hair to Pantene’s Wigs for Kids charity. Boys can choose to pay $10 to get their head shaved. This money goes to our local chapter of Sting Cancer.
Mrs. Shelly Pelishek, proud SBS parent and hair stylist, donates her time to help make this event successful. Thank you, Shelly!
Another tradition that was started last year – all pre-K-7 students will participate in various carnival games and activities.
More details to follow as we continue to organize.
