100 Days of School

On January 30th, 2014 my kindergarten class had a blast celebrating 100 days of school! The week before our 100th day of school celebration I sent a red cape home with each student and instructed their family to help them decorate their capes by putting 100 things on it. It was so fun to see all the neat ideas they had for their capes! Many of the students decided to put 100 stickers on their cape while others put googly eyes, beads, jewels, and more on theirs! The students had a super time wearing their capes during our 100th day celebration! To complement their awesome capes they also made 100th day wristbands and hats with 100 polka dots! It has been amazing watching my students learn and grow during the past 100 days! More than anything, I appreciate how much I have gotten to know my students and the relationships I have developed with each one of them!

Tri County Elementary Theme BE A HERO

Photo caption: Ashton Keltner reported as a Tri County hero...congrats Ashton!!

Tri County Elementary School is using the theme Be A HERO this year. We have discovered that a HERO is someone who Helps Everyone Respect Others. When a student has been caught helping others, they are rewarded for their kindness. They have their name announced over the intercom for everyone to hear, plus they receive a gumball! We now have a blue Super Hero cape that the students may wear for a time during the day. They are very proud to wear the cape and the other students are in awe of them. Recently, Ashton Keltner, a student in Mrs. Pfingstens class had the honor of wearing the coveted blue cape. It was pretty exciting.
