Our school will be joining the Ruby Bridges Foundation in the effort to end racism and all forms of bullying by participating in Walk to School Day.
On Monday, November 14th, We are encouraging students to walk to school. Recognizing that students take buses or are driven to school from a distance, we are organizing walking opportunities for our students throughout the day. During recess, children are going to be encouraged to walk at least one lap around the perimeter of our playground. During the school day, teachers will be walking with their students around our school property. In classrooms, students and teachers will be learning about Ruby Bridges' story. On a bulletin board, our school community will post their messages about how to end racism and bullying, and how to make a difference in our world!

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15th to October 15th. Teachers have been using a variety of resources, including videos, books, and activities to teach students about the significant contributions made by Latinos. This year's theme is Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation. Throughout the year, we will continue to focus on creating an inclusive school community that recognizes each member for their individuality and for the contributions they make to making us a stronger school! Our studies during Hispanic Heritage Month extend past our general classrooms and into our special area classes (art, music and library). In the art room, second grade Webster artists learned about the village of Teotitlan del Valle's weaving traditions of the Zapotec Rug. The weavings were made with either wool or cotton on looms, and traditional geometric patterns were used as designs in the rugs. Student artists created their own versions of these rugs using paint, oil pastels, and yarn.
If you have costumes that no longer fit your child/children, please consider donating them to our school. Donations will be accepted from October 11th to October 14th. After costumes have been organized by size, they will be displayed for students to select from on October 17th to October 21st.
