“Selfies” (self-portraits) were the assignments for these grades. Art can be a ton of fun for a student of this age. However, simply trying to draw a line can be overwhelming, so we began the year with putting pencil and crayon to the paper. For the older end of the group, we’ve begun talking about adding things like ears and feet. We’ve also begun looking at moving away from stick figures and trying to draw a body. I think for their very first art class assignment, they’ve done a remarkable job!
Community Eligibility Provision Sheldon R-VIII School District is participating in a Free Breakfast and Lunch Program for the current school year (2015-16). This alternative is referred to as the Community Eligibility Provision. All students enrolled at this school may participate in the breakfast/lunch program at no charge. Household applications for free and reduced price meals will not be collected. Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing breakfast/lunch to all children at no charge, we can create a better learning environment for our students. The school breakfast and lunch that we serve follows U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The Free Breakfast and Lunch Program cannot succeed without your support. Please encourage your children to participate in the school meal programs. All meals will be served to all students at no charge. Non-discrimination . . .

In November we will be discussing the topic of FEELINGS. Feelings can be very difficult to express for many people, adults and children. We will be doing activities with all elementary grade levels to help them identify and express their feelings appropriately. We also we will be watching the much anticipated Disney Pixar film INSIDE OUT, which is a great tool for me to use in the classrooms to spark discussion about feelings. Here is the movie description of Inside Out: Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) is a happy, hockey-loving 11-year-old Midwestern girl, but her world turns upside-down when she and her parents move to San Francisco. Riley's emotions -- led by Joy (Amy Poehler) -- try to guide her through this difficult, life-changing event. However, the stress of the move brings Sadness (Phyllis Smith) to the forefront. When Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley's mind, the only emotions left in Headquarters are Anger, Fear and Disgust.
