October 31st students in 2nd – 5th grades will have a chance to MIX IT UP AT LUNCH!  Students will be randomly assigned (by grade level) to tables in the cafeteria for lunch that day.  This gives students a chance to make new friends and promote an inclusive school culture!  It’s a little crazy for us adults BUT THE KIDS LOVE IT!!

The week of October 30th – November 3rd  is College and Career Awareness week.  From clues provided about statewide colleges on the morning announcements (ie:  What college has a Hokie for a mascot?  VA tech; Which college basketball team is know as the HAVOC? VCU) students will have the chance guess the correct answer and enter a raffle for fun prizes.

 

The week of January 22-26 is THE GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE  –  ONE school week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible throughout the school, choosing from a 50 item checklist.
