ONE BOOK, ONE SCHOOL FAMILY READING NIGHT: Mark your calendars!

RSVP too, via this: 2018 PP One Book, One School Family Reading Night.
MONDAY, 1.15 CELEBRATING MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR: Our celebration, "Open the Door with Kindness" is purposefully designed to supporting learning, service and inspiration! Children will watch Dr. King's "I have a Dream" speech and engage in discussion around how can we live out MLK's message. This upcoming Monday, 1.15, we kick off off a non-perishable food drive for two weeks. Donated food will support local pantries. This Kid President clip has been a resource for our youngest learners, while King's I Have a Dream Speech has been shown for grades 3-8. For a printed version of King's speech, click hereGHAPS looks forward to shared conversations about community, empathy and kindness.
GIRLS ON THE RUN SHOE-FITTING MONDAY, 1.15: Peach is a site for this... Girls who are participating, fittings are available afterschool  until 5:30pm.
WATCHDOGS REPORTS: Our WatchDOGS thus far have collectively strongly reported their experience was rewarding. Each Dad believed they had the chance to impact children while they volunteers and want to come back! Dates are still available on our main hallway calendar. Pop in and sign up!
WINTERFEST CARDBOARD SLED RACE: Interested? Come as a family to the event attached!

In closing, students learned about "optimism" at a celebration assembly last week. What a difference being positive makes! We all have a choice about how we will impact others at home and at work... Let's make a difference and model for our kids!
