Weekly Update Sept 19
JK-8 Families-- We survived Homecoming Week! I hope your students had a fun time dressing up or doing fun activities with their peers. It was a lot of fun for us to see how many participated, it brings a lot of spirit to the building! If you haven't already, please check out our JK-8 Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/shenpk8) page to see some pictures from this week. Follow the page all year long to see what is happening inside, or maybe even outside, our walls here at the JK-8 building.
Not only was it Homecoming Week, we also had some other excitement with the moving in of new and out with some old furniture. JK and K rooms got new tables and all the elementary rooms got new kidney shaped tables (they are really cool because they have a whiteboard top on them so the students can do work right on the table). Some teachers got some new teacher desks and more will get them next week. This coming week we get another truck load and all of the classrooms will be getting new student desks. Some other areas are getting new tables, chairs, stools, etc too so soon our building will be full of all sorts of new stuff!
I want to send a big THANK YOU to our local Pella plant as they have graciously provided us with some workers to help assemble, deliver, and remove furniture. They have been a huge help so we are extremely grateful to them for helping us out!
This coming week we will have PICTURE DAY on Thursday. You should have gotten a notice in your student's bag with information on how to order. Please look for that and let us know if you have any questions.
Congrats to our athletes for another great week of performances! A big shout out goes to the 7th and 8th grade football teams for their victories over Clarinda!
