Happy Friday Wolfpack!

Code: green

Lotus, 1st grade,  led us in The Pledge.

Drills: Ms Zelski commented that the students did really well in yesterday’s severe weather drill. Well done everyone, give yourselves a pat on the back!

Sustainability: Parent Jessica Harlan told us that the waste from last month’s Zero Waste Wednesday’s weighed in at 87lbs, that’s 6lbs less than November and 7lbs less than December! There will be a presentation from the Sustainability Committee at the next PTCA meeting. This week’s Green Suggestion comes from Lily in 3rd grade. Lily suggested that we pick up our trash as it can be dangerous to animals. She’s right! Trash can cause all sorts of problems for animals and our environment so always find a trashcan.

Black History Month: Today Ava, 2nd grade, shared her knowledge about Rosa Parks with us. She was born on February 4th 1913 and died on October 4th 2005, and is often called the Mother of the Civil Rights Movement. In 1955 she refused to give up her bus seat to a white person and was arrested. This led to the Birmingham Bus Boycott, a key moment in the Civil Rights movement. Thanks for sharing this with us Ava!

Song of the Week: We closed out the week with Ms Reese and Ms Randall’s second graders and a Song About Martin.

Mindful Moment:This week we have been silently thinking about being a rainbow to someone on their cloudy day.

We wish you well.
