CHRISTMAS BREAK CHALLENGE by Alea Goodman
January 27, 2017
For the past three years, the Junior High students and teachers/staff members read a book over Winter Break. This year there were 24 students and 12 teachers/staff members involved in the reading challenge. This is the way the challenge works: you sign up and pick a book of your choice. Then everyone reads the book over break, and meets with the teacher or staff member you read with to discuss the story. This challenge helps us keep our mind active over the break so we don't sit at home, watch TV, and play video games everyday. The reward this year was an ice cream sundae party. I think this is a good thing for our Junior High students, and we should do it again next year.

Operation Enduring Freedom
November 22, 2016
Staff Sergeant Tyler Griffin is seen here presenting to Malden Grade School a flag that was flown over Southwest Asia in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on September 9, 2016.
The flag will be prominently displayed near the main entrance to the school.
Staff Sergeant Griffin is a former student of Malden Grade School. He is the son of Shawn and Tammy Griffin. Tyler enlisted in the Air Force in April 2012. When deployed he is a Fuels Laboratory Specialist, inspecting the fuel that goes into the jets. Tyler just returned from deployment in Al Dhafra and is stationed at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Accepting the flag on Malden Grade School's behalf is 5th grade student Jack May.
Malden Grade School thanks Staff Sergeant Griffin for his service to our country!!
Mastering Math Facts
October 2016 - January 2017
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 center was taken mid-November, and the right one is end of January. Look at the progress the students have made so far this year!
Please take a look at all the gumballs next time you visit the school and encourage your child to master those facts.
