On Friday, November 11th students and staff invited local veterans to a Veteran's Day breakfast and assembly. About 45 guests attended the event that featured student performances and guest speaker Jim Rawlings, United States Air Force Veteran and currently employeed through the United States Army at Rock Island Arsenal. Mr. Rawlings spoke on how serving in the military requires the six pillars of character that the elementary students are learning about.
Special thank you to the Boy Scouts, former Malden students, Zach and Reece Bohms and Beckett Conwell for starting our assembly by presenting the colors. Kindergarten students led us in saying the Pledge of Allegiance followed by First - Fourth Grade singing the National Anthem. Kaleb Cain and Kaden Baker gave speeches and the Junior High students sang America.
Mastering Math Facts
October - November 2016
The First - Fourth Grade students are working hard on mastering their math facts.
After they master a set of math facts, they get to put a gumball on the gumball machine poster on Mr. Patterson's door.
The photo on the left is from early October; the photo on the right was taken mid-November.
Please take a look at all the gumballs next time you visit the school and encourage your child to master those facts.
