Yesterday we celebrated our teachers who are retiring and leaving for a new adventure. Mr. Corcoran, Mrs. Cody and Ms. Bernard are retiring this year! These three amazing teachers have a combined total of servings students and families of over 100 years. I know they will be missed greatly here at Elvehjem and have made great impacts on hundreds of students and families over the years. We are also saying goodbye to Mrs. Hernandez who is moving and starting a new job. She will also be greatly missed here at Elvehjem but we are confident she will do great things at her new school. Thank you all for everything you have done for our students, families and the entire Elvehjem Community.
Our amazing LVM Girls on the Run team rocked the 5K this morning, not only with their impressive running (2 of our girls were the second and third to finish) but also with their fantastic sportsmanship and energy. They did their warm-up exercises and danced together joyfully on their own as a team. When our girls finished, they cheered on not only their teammates but every single person running those last two-tenths of a mile on the track. It was a beautiful thing to see! And 2 of our girls stayed until the very end to run that last bit with one of our girls, who was the very last runner to finish. She said, "They saved the best for last!"
We had so much fun celebrating all of our learning at Field Day! Students and families gathered outdoors to engage in a number of stations set up by our PE teacher Mrs. Grady. There were lots of smiles and laughter. The event ended with Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Solochek going down a slide into a pool of slime!
Our students held an outdoor concert to show off all of their hard work. Families gathered for the first time in a long time to celebrate their accomplishments. One parent shared, “Thank you for doing this. It feels so great to be back at school like this.” It really did fill our hearts with joy after a long, hard year. Thank you Mr. Krabbe for all your hard work.
As a final project in their pollinator unit, 2nd graders hosted a picnic lunch in our school garden to teach families and friends about the importance of pollinators. During this unit they learned scientific terms for plans and pollinators, researched why they are important and made a number of resources to share their learning with the community including seed packets with homemade labels to distribute at the library, seed bombs with labels for their families and a number of items for the school garden to support the pollinators.
Our 5th grade students are wrapping up their study on Natural Disasters and had the opportunity to share their Public Service Announcement and brochures with our school community today. They are definitely experts of natural disasters and the important items to have in an emergency kit.
