Name Bubbles

Our PTF has a new fundraiser through Name Bubbles!  Name Bubbles are a wonderful way to ensure what we send with our kids to school comes home from school.  These labels stick to clothes, lunch containers, shoes, instruments, cameras, sports equipment and so much more.  Please check out the website at to learn about all the great options available for your family.  The attached sheet provides additional details and the school code “SPS14″.

Not a Box

 Last week the children listened to the book Not a Box and talked about all of the different things they could turn a cardboard box into. During their free play time the children were able to use all of our art materials to decorate and construct their box. On Friday we painted our boxes to make train cars and lined them up to make a train.

Mr. Koeppel stopped by to see all of our train cars.
