Every year, first grade students read the book Turkey Trouble, which is a story about a turkey who tries many different disguises to keep himself safe through Thanksgiving. Students are then tasked with disguising their own turkey and writing clues about their turkey. Once the clues are read, students have to try to guess which one of their classmates created that turkey. We had some very creative turkeys this year - a Christmas tree, a dragon, a mermaid, Santa Claus and a gumball machine to name a few.

After learning of Maquoketa CSD's decision to extend their winter break we wanted to make sure our families knew that we remain committed to honoring our current calendar, as previously scheduled. We are very thankful for the partnership we have with all of our students' parents and wish you all a happy Thanksgiving.

In guidance over the last couple of weeks, fourth, fifth and sixth grade students have been getting to teach their classmates about something that they really enjoy doing or that is important to them. This is to show that each classmate is important, and they get to learn something from each other to make everyone feel important! Here are some pictures from our fourth grade classrooms!

We implemented new playground and 4-Square rules at the beginning of the school year. I was approached by a group of sixth graders who wanted a 4-Square rule changed. They compiled research, wrote a paper and gathered signatures from staff and fellow students who supported the change. They scheduled a meeting with me yesterday to present their data and discuss the issue. I asked them to give me a day to think over their presentation and I met with them again today to let them know that we will be making the rule change. I am proud of these students for taking the initiative and working to make their voices heard.
