Bowling is Back!!!

We have started our bowling unit for K-5th grades.  This unit is always a favorite for our students!!  3rd-5th learn their 3 step approach and how to keep score.  K-2nd learn their 4 cue words and how to put their score in to the frames.  After they complete the unit, Hudsonville Lanes gives them a coupon for 3 free games of bowling….SO exciting!  Here are a few pictures…

THANK YOU!!!

Thank you so much for all the support we had for Kids Heart Challenge!  We surpassed our goals of raising money for American Heart Association and getting half our school to register online.  We raised $11,404.00 and our goal was $9,300.00.  We had 311 students register and our goal was 283.  That is amazing!!!  So not only did we help out a great cause, we also earned some PE equipment for our school! Thanks for being willing to do it all online too, we can not begin to tell how much time that saved us.

We are still in the process of handing out thank you gifts, so hopefully by next week we will complete giving all the key chains and wristbands.  Please note prizes like jump ropes, t-shirts and playground balls etc. will be ordered next week from American Heart Association and then they will send them to us,  after spring break.

Thanks again, we appreciate it!
