100 Day Parade a HUGE success!

The 100th Day of School is always a milestone for our kinder students here at Shady Grove because we’ve been reading and writing for 100 days! We celebrate the entire day with nonstop 100th day of school activities. That means a day full of fun that includes lots of counting, dressing up to be 100 years old, eating Cheerios and building structures with 100 items. The highlight is when Zero Hero visits our classroom and counts by 10's with us! We end the 100th Day with a BIG parade around the school. Everyone, including parents and students, are cheering us on as we pull our decorated floats. We even get to march outside through the Bulldog tunnel! It can't get any better than that! The 100th Day of school is a memorable day that continues to be an annual tradition in kindergarten at Shady Grove Elementary!

Update on our MLK Day of Service

Each grade-level team had a service project planned to help our young students understand the purpose of honoring Martin Luther King Day:
At Shady Grove our students focused on serving others in a variety of ways, including using kind words through hand written letters and physical acts of service! Our Pre-K and Kindergarten students focused on writing letters to local assisted living and nursing homes to be delivered in January and February. Our First Grade students started a canned food drive to support local families, and our Second Grade students worked hard weeding and planting in our campus garden in order to provide fresh vegetables in the Spring to LACare here in Burnet.

Pre-Kindergarten Students learn about Community Helpers!

SGE Pre-Kindergarten students have been learning about Community Helpers. They have learned job titles, job responsibilities and the tools that our Community Helpers use. The students have even done some serious thinking about what they want to be when they grow up.
Along with the help of the Public Works Departments at the City of Burnet, the Burnet Police Department, the Department of Public Safety, Smart Smiles Dentists, Herman Brown Public Library Staff, the Burnet Fire Department and Al Clawson Disposal Inc.; our PreK students have had several opportunities to see Community Helpers up-close. Students have talked with real life Community Helpers and have seen their equipment in action. Our partnership with the above mentioned agencies has brought our books and learning in the classroom to life!
