Spirit Week

Parents,

Next week, Dayton Elementary School will be holding a spirit week in order to raise funds for a former Dayton Bulldog who has recently been diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer.  Each day will have a different theme, and students may make daily donations to take part, or may simply donate once during the week.  Just remember, all donations will go to a wonderful cause.

Monday: Hat Day

Tuesday: Athletic Wear (Favorite Sports Team)

Wednesday: Bulldog Day

Thursday: Super Here Day

Friday: Pajama Day

 

Cheers,

 

Mr. Scott

3-D Printing, Plays, Video Games, and Pentominos

I wanted to take a minute to share some awesome things that have happened this week in class.  First, I have really enjoyed seeing the enthusiasm that the students and all of you parents have been putting into working with the pentominos!  Keep sending me the pictures as they come in!

Also, Jesse, Ben, and Killian have been working very hard to produce a game in Social Studies, as have all the other students, however they decided that they wanted to make a video game.  They have been using Scratch to do so.  It’s pretty impressive to me!

We have some amazing young people in this class who have been working hard, completely on their own to create a play about Greek Mythology.  Ava C, Hadley, Janae, Sarah, Kylee, Elijah, Drew, Claire (I’m sorry if I missed someone), have been working ferociously since before Christmas to produce this and they will finally get in front of part of the student body next week to produce their work!  I am so impressed that they have taken this upon themselves with no prompting whatsoever.

Finally, Jack R. got on the computer today and created our very first 3D Model.  Here’s a picture. I’ve never tried this out with anyone before.  Pretty impressive, if you ask me!

Movie Night

Parents, there will be some forms coming home today regarding movie night, this Friday.

Friday will be a Pajama Day at school. Students will be allowed to bring a pillow and blanket to school with them. Movie night will start right after school, so there will be no need for parents to drop students off, only pick them up. The form that is coming home will have the end time for the film. Please make sure that signed forms and money are sent in ASAP! Thanks!!

Cheers,

Mr. Scott

A Wonderful Day

This truly was an awesome day! I’m very grateful to all who contributed to the GoFundMe.com campaign that I set up this morning. I really can’t believe that we were fully funded in one day. Thank you, thank you all for being so amazing.

Report Cards

I just wanted to remind everyone that report cards came home this afternoon. Please make sure to check with your child when they return home from school.

Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!
