Guidance counselor Mrs. Edgar and teacher Kayla Wright worked with the seventh- and eighth-graders in developing a presentation on the character trait of self-control. Students made a short video and facilitated a “Kahoot” review on what self-control does and does not look like in school. The purpose of this presentation was for students to relearn the importance of coming to class prepared, paying attention, resisting distractions, following directions and not procrastinating.
Thank you to Mrs. Giles-Brown
Liz Giles-Brown had a busy day on a recent Thursday. She hosted an in-line skating presentation so her students in grades three and four could show parents their awesome skills. Giles-Brown’s day included coaching the Jump Rope Spindrifters before school, hosting the skating event, running the Jump Rope for Heart school-wide event, and then ending with her Circus Arts students after school. What a day! Thank you to Giles-Brown and all her students for their fantastic ongoing efforts. Special thanks also go to the many parents who donated snacks for the Jump Rope for Heart event.
From 6-7 p.m., Monday, March 13, there will be sign-ups for boys and girls ages 5-12 years old interested in playing baseball or softball as follows: T-ball, farm team, or Little League. Sign-ups will take place in the lobby of South Bristol School.
Poem for Read Across America Day
Is that lady in kindergarten someone you know?
Could that be Mrs. Plummer you see below?
We had readers come to school to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, you see.
It was Read Across America Day, from sea to shining sea.
The kids love it when volunteers come to our school.
They think it’s nice of them, they think it’s cool.
When each student grows up and is no longer a kid,
They will give back to the community like our volunteers
