All Week: Pennies for Prevention & Other Silver Coins
During Red Ribbon Week bring in your pennies (coins also welcome) each morning. All coins will be counted and pennies weighed daily. Nickels, dimes and quarters will be converted to their penny pound equivalent (i.e. 1 quarter will equal 25 pennies in weight, etc.). Daily prizes will be awarded to classes with the most coins donated. This is a Brag Tag opportunity! We also need parents to help count coins so please join us any morning of the week at the lunch tables!
Walk to School Thursday
Walking to school is a a way for us to keep our bodies healthy, the environment clean, and be a part of the community. In celebration of Red Ribbon Week, we choose a day of the week to walk to school together.
2017 starting point 7:45am
Our Walk to School Day will be at the crossing guard-protected crosswalk on Park Place between the Woodside, Windstream, and Park Paseo neighborhoods. We’ll meet at 7:45am. Park at the end of Kara W, Fortuna W, or any of the cul-de-sacs between those streets and the back of the school.
