The third week of June will be bittersweet, as we say goodbye to our 8th grade students. This group has been inspirational and we are sad to see them go. Yet, we are equally excited for our graduates' new chapter as they transition to high school. Last but definitely not least, we cannot forget about our youngest scholars, who will be honored with a special kindergarten celebration. A truly fantastic month!
We can't help but include some fun into the month! Beginning May 8th, students can dress down for Scammon's Spirit Week, each day presents a new theme. May 8th-12th is Teacher's Appreciation Week; parents and students do not forget to thank your teachers for all their hard work. On May 17th, we are excited to hold an end of the year parent event, Sizzlin' Summer Scholars. Lastly, we are proud to announce Scammon's attendance is on the rise! Twenty-three classrooms earned the attendance incentive for the month of April. May's Race to the Finish Line attendance incentive will include incredible outdoor fun. Keep up the fantastic attendance!
With the end of Quarter 3, students will earn their new character education dog-tags. Scammon's "Abril"iant Attendance event will be held at the end of April. The winning classes in grades K-4 will create a small plant with "Abril"iant Growth. Meanwhile, winning classes grades 5-8 will face off with academic activities in "Abril"iant Games. We can't wait to see which classrooms achieve over a 95% attendance for the month. Let's see if we can beat March's record of 19 classrooms!
Scammon's Attendance Matters: March Madness event will be held at the end of March. This incentive asks classrooms to strive for an attendance average above 95%. We wish every class luck!
With the end of Quarter 2, we will honor a few students in each classroom for the following qualities leadership, kindness, attendance, and academics. Students will receive dog tags to wear at school in honor of their accomplishments. Main Building Awards: 02/10/2017. Annex Building Awards: 02/14/2017.
On February 14, students will participate in the "You are Beautiful" movement. Students are encouraged to wear pink, read, or purple on this day to show school spirit.
