We will be participating in a Box Top drive to bring in as many Box Tops as we can during the next three weeks. Box Tops help us pay for or reduce the cost of incentives and field trips. Please see the list of products that have Box Tops below. They should be sent into school and given to first hour teachers. The first hour with the most Box Tops turned in during the three week drive will receive a prize! As always thank you for your support!
Tuesday, November 21, we will be taking an all school field trip to see the movie Wonder.
"Wonder is the touching tale about a fifth grade boy, August Pullman ("Auggie"), who was born with a rare combination of genetic anomalies. These birth defects require many surgeries throughout his childhood. As a result, Auggie is not able to attend public school until fifth grade. Though he is very smart and has been home-schooled, Auggie has no idea what it is like to be in school with other children. His only experiences with people, besides his family and a few others, have been in hospitals or when people gawked at him in public.
The book relates Auggie’s first year of school from the perspective of many different characters. He experiences both bullying and random acts of kindness. The story is an eye-opening account that helps the reader understand what it is like to be different, to experience bullying, and to persevere".
Wonder is a great tool in the fight against bullying!

We will be writing letters to include in our packages to service men and women during social studies class next week. This is a special project as we are honoring the legacy of a former Pinewood alum and EK graduate. All items need to be brought to school by Friday, November 17.
