"Support" is On-the-Way!

Sadly, Hurricane Harvey has created some
extreme situations for families living
 in the south.  Prairie View, Texas
 is one such community now dealing
with the aftermath of the storm.

Last week, Mrs. Gray's 2nd graders choose to "adopt" Ms. Moore & her second graders at H.T. Jones Elementary School, in Texas:

Their Solution:
asking families for chores, allowing
 them to raise
& donate all the money
earned to Ms. Moore and her pupils.
Update:  
"I'm so proud of my students.  
Thank you so much for your assistance in this
life-changing event; our class raised $200.00!  They are true "leaders" while helping others in need.  This past weekend I mailed gift cards
 and letters they've all written, off to Texas!"

Spotted Last Week

Mr. Mikeworth "tipped" us off
about this gem, at Parkside's
4th & 5th grade entrance @ 7:20 A.M.
What a great way to start the day!
Later, a 5th grader spotted the
 rock & its message, vowing to
re-hide it somewhere in our community!

A.M. Conversations

Third grade trio in the hallway,
listening to one another before school begins.
We share ideas & opinions,
learning from the viewpoints of others.

Synergize!

Build a tower, the "mission of the moment."
We jumped right in but without plans.  
OK..... it was slow-going.  

So we stopped to discuss how 
"best" to move ahead with construction.  
Hey, just five minutes of brainstorming
together makes a BIG difference!
It is amazing what we can
accomplish when
we're in it together!

Teamwork makes the dream work.
A duo......oh yes.
"Together is better!"

The Perfect Assistant

This is the home
of Stan, the Kissing Gourami.
  Now that the two of you've
met, we think he'll be happy
to have you feed him on school days!  
"Sharpening the Saw"
includes 
taking time to help others.
