At our Victory assembly today, we learned that we are over 1/4 of the way towards our goal of having each student receive Croc Claws for living one of the 7 Habits.  And we are a little over 1/3 of the way towards earning 10,000 tickets for the Reading Carnival.  Keep working hard Crocs….we will reach our goal if each one of us does our part!

Grinch Day in First Grade

Submitted by jan.grotegut on Thu, 12/15/2022 - 12:43

Learning during the holidays can be fun!  In First Grade, we celebrated Grinch Day.  The 1st Graders did grinch worksheets, did a directed drawing of the grinch, made a cup that looked like the grinch, and watched the new grinch and ate popcorn that was in our cups.   They also ate “grinch pills” (Christmas m&m’s) and green candy canes.
