January 15, 2015 Family Tech Night

Our tech coach, Mr. Yoder, held a Tech Night for the families of third graders.  Families worked with Shadow Puppet to select a poem and record themselves reading it.  Then families played a game with Kahoot. This game can be used to check for understanding as it asked questions and gave choices.  All could participate at the same time and get immediate results to see who had the highest score.  It was a blast!

January 2015 Helping Hands

The donations of 89 hats, scarves, and mittens were given to Helping Hands in Rome City this year.  Many families will enjoy the warmth of  your kindness.
These photos were taken of the Helping Hands facility and some of the volunteers who help there.  They welcome donations on Thursdays.

January 3, 2015 - A Great Idea to Focus on the Positives in 2015

Here is an idea that I saw, and thought I would share with all of you.  There are so many good things that happen every day in our lives.  This would be a great way to celebrate each one as they occur and to look back at the end of the year to reflect on the good moments.  What do you think?

On this rainy Saturday, I think I will add to my jar that I am enjoying a warm home and pictures of my new great-niece born Dec. 20th. :-)
What are you adding to your jar today?
