Grade 1/2 Class Initiative – Staples Recycling Program

As you may know, the Grade 1/2 class of Busy Bees worked together the last few months to start a collection for recycling of writing utensils. After our learning following Earth Day, we found out that Staples will recycle writing materials rather than going to the landfill. We created posters or announcements or letters to inform our school members about our initiative. We placed a bucket in each learning area for others to use as well so we could collect. The students collected one very full file box worth of materials that will now avoid the landfill to be recycled and reused. At the beginning of the summer, Ms. King delivered the box the school collected. These little people should be very proud of the difference they are making! Congratulations on your efforts, Busy Bees! Let’s see if we can collect even more next year!

Happy Last Day of School!!

It’s that time again where we celebrate the last day of our time in the Busy Bee class for the year! Happy last day of school!

I want to take some time to say how proud I am of ALL the students for their growth in positive character & academics! They did work extremely hard & know they are turning into wonderful little people. It’s most certainly always hard to say goodbye & you can feel that in the class atmosphere this week.

My time with this group of students has been beyond amazing! I was so lucky to have such amazing students and families to work with. Our poem of the week was all about saying goodbye and setting high expectations for success. I believe all of these Busy Bees have the potential for the great things they have planned for themselves & wish them all the best in what they do next year. I believe in them!

Thank you to all the families that really support their children’s education! Together, students will achieve great things! I am going to miss this crew as they move on next year! Who knows…maybe I will have some again if the cards land just so!! 😉

I am soooo very lucky to get to work in a community such as this! Growing up here, I knew it was the place to come back to! The school community still works the same; carrying on the legacy! Thank you to all the parents that make it work to support their children’s education!

Wishing you all a happy, safe, and wonderful summer break! Keep reading and writing! Go into grade 2 & 3 and wow them with how much more you learned over the summer! You have got this, Busy Bees!

Happy summer, everyone!
