March Spirit Assembly

Our March Spirit Assembly helped us feel like spring would finally arrive soon! Things are gearing up for the book fair, March 19-23. Come to the kick off night on Friday, March 16 at 6:00pm to see the movie Coco! Additionally, there are boxes outside of the office to donate money for kids who don’t have access to books. The teacher that has the MOST money in his/her box at the end of the bookfair will have to sit in the “doghouse” for the next spirit assembly!

Additionally, students from the Sing Your Heart Out club showed us what they’ve been working on with their musical director, Ms. Gwen. These first and second graders sound wonderful!

Holiday Celebration & Thank You

The students in Mr. David Bickel’s classroom recently hosted their second annual “Holiday Celebration and Thank You” for the school’s staff and teachers. They made invitation cards and delivered them throughout the building as the winter break approached.

On Dec. 21, 2017, the tables in Room 36 were festively decorated and filled with healthy goodies, such as cut veggies and hummus, salsa and crackers, and fresh fruit salad. Guests were greeted at the door by Mr. Bickel’s students, dressed in tuxedo T-shirts. The students poured cider, passed out food, and mingled with their many visitors. On the way out, each guest received a handmade thank-you card.

In preparation for the event, the school’s Occupational Therapist, Sharon Andrews, provided the students of Room 36 with lessons to teach a variety of food preparation skills, such as chopping, measuring, mixing, and pouring. Mr. Bickel’s students would like to thank Mrs. Andrews and everyone who joined them that day for allowing them to express their appreciation to Greenwood Elementary School’ staff in this special way!
