Show your Christmas spirit at school! Students & staff: sport your favorite Christmas socks, headgear, etc. on these days!
Kindergarten Pow Wow was a great success. We had fun learning about Native Americans traditions, singing songs and dancing. We made our Native American vest and painted symbols on them. We loved that our parents participated in our Turkey Ta and Rattlesnake dance. We had a blast!
In December, we are studying about winter traditions and customs around the world. We learn about Christmas in Italy, Australia, Peru, Germany, Mexico and Canada. We will also learn about India’s winter celebration of Diwali and Israel’s celebration of Hanukkah.
We need parents to help make Shady Grove Elementary the BEST it can be! See flyer for details... Meetings are the 4th Wednesday of every month, 5:30pm in the Shady Grove Elementary Library.
We woke up to a cold and rainy morning, but the weather didn’t stop us from heading out to Sweet Eats Fruit Farm in Georgetown for our Fall Field Trip. Our second graders had a blast feeding animals, learning about planting strawberries and using map skills to get through the hay maze. Although we had to return early due to the rain, our students kept a positive attitude and made some great memories!
Shady Grove celebrated Grandparents Day a little differently this year. We wanted grandparents to feel a part of the campus and classrooms, while showing the students' love for reading! To top it all off, cookies were brought in specially made by the cafeteria staff. What could be better than a day full of Grandparents, books and cookies?
