Veteran's Day Celebration
Our Veteran's Day Program will be Thursday, November 9th at 10:00. We are asking students to invite special family and friends who are Veterans to join us in the ceremony. There will be a coffee reception in the library at 9:30 for students and guests. Please return the reservation form so we can make arrangements for all guests. Students should wear red, white and blue on this day.
Pick is hosting the Thankful for Books Book Fair during the week of November 13 - 17. We will have many wonderful books for students to select to add to their home libraries. Tuesday, November 14th, is Family Shopping Night from 4:00-6:00. Thursday we invite all "Grand" guests to join us for Thanksgiving lunch and shopping in the Book Fair.
These students demonstrated school pride during Red Ribbon Week activities.
We totaled our Box Tops last week. Our grand total for the whole school was 9033 Box Tops which translates to $903.30 for our school for our fall collection! Way to go Pick Elementary! Thank you to all the students, parents and teachers for sending in those Box Tops and supporting our school! Our top class for sending in the most Box Tops was Mrs. Greathouse's class. They sent in a total of 1051 Box Tops! Congratulations! We will celebrate with an ice cream party soon!
Students were nominated by their class for outstanding citizenship and leadership. These students were honored at a special Leader of the Quarter breakfast in the library. Congratulations!
Reading Challenge 2 has begun!
Get started now so you can attend the Candy Cane Cafe in December. This reading challenge includes reading 5 books new to you. One book has to be an information book and you will tell some facts you learn while you read. The other required book is a chapter book and you will tell all about the character. If you need a new paper, there are extra copies in the library. See Mrs. Hooks or Mrs. Weeden if you have any questions.
