I am so glad we have made it to May!!!! Your children amaze me with everything they have learned this year!!! They have read and passed 1,067 AR tests!!!!! Mrs. Heiman will be kissing a pig on the last week of school. The Wichita 4H club has helped us secure a pig for this momentous occasion.
The music program last week was so special and I know your children loved having you come watch their hard work!
Our Field Day activities will begin after lunch with a presentation from Exploration Place to K-1 then we will continue outside to exercise stations for the rest of the afternoon. Please, sign up on genius if you can come help run a game/station for K-1 to rotate into.
Thank you to all the parents who stepped up and helped out extra with the field trip in my absence. It seemed like the class had a blast! I am working on getting the class photo taken added to the site soon!
Today, I confessed to the class that they are at 1,016 passed AR tests!!!!!! It is not even May and they made it!!! If you know of any way to get a pig we are still on a big hunt to track one down for Mrs. Heiman to kiss please just call or e-mail the office with any leads! We stormed the office to let Mrs. Heiman know!
We had a chance to experience how to make birdhouses with the help of the Knights of Columbus!!! The class had a blast! Another fun experience was the Living Stations the middle school presented to us this afternoon. They present again tonight at 7 pm so I hope you make time to see it.
I am amazed by this class!! I just read a report that said they passed 362 AR tests this quarter!!!!! WOW!!!! We now have 769 passed AR tests and most of them from this quarter! I am so excited to watch and see when the date will be for Mrs. Heiman to kiss a pig!!!!
So excited for this week!!!!! The class has earned a RAVENS party for showing manners and respect to make others happy especially though eye contact!!!! We will have a special party soon. RAVENS manners parties can be earned each month.
LOCATION HAS BEEN CHANGED!!!! DUE TO A FUNERAL, WE ARE MOVING THE MEETING TO THE MUSIC ROOM AT THE SCHOOL. YOU MAY ENTER THROUGH THE DOUBLE GLASS DOORS LOCATED ON THE LOWER LEVEL EASTSIDE OF THE BUILDING. Thursday, March 8th at 6:30 PM
Dr. Seberger has also invited Dr. Swingle to join in on the meeting, via conference call, Dr. Swingle is the author of the book "iMinds."
This book "iMinds" explores the effects of electronic media and gaming on the brain. Dr. Swingle has been at the forefront of understanding the change in the developing brain with electronic media use. She, like us, uses the measure of psychophysiology, measure brain waves and location of brainwaves, in order to understand what is happening to the brain. These changes are highly correlated with behavior. Electronic gaming and social media are highly correlated with psychiatric diagnosis, as well as the capture of a particular alpha signal, seen in creativity. There is a concern as well, that excessive use of social media is leading to increased anxiety formation, which can be measured.
We had lots of fun this week with Read 2018!!!! We celebrated as a school by reading for 2,018 seconds which is approximately 34 minutes. The class now has 541 passed AR tests towards their goal of 1,000 for Mrs. Heiman to kiss a pig!!
