Eureka Heights Elementary School pupils PBIS incentive was holiday games, and from the look of it, they enjoyed there earnings!
The Blair Moody Elementary School PBIS incentive for December was "Art Hub Drawing," an example of which is shown here.
There's nothing better than a good old fashioned sing-a-long and that's just what they had at McDowell Elementary School before leaving for holiday break. Mrs. Arndt, the school’s wonderful music teacher, led everyone in all the traditional carols. Jingle Bells to all of you!
It was beautiful music! The Taylor Parks Elementary School Chorus, under the direction of Ms. Tamika Wilson, performed for staff, students and guests a selection of songs to help all get into the holiday spirit. From beginning to end, the performance held the attention of everyone. Also performing was student Damien, who played a solo of “Ode To Joy” on his guitar, and Ms. Gorski, teacher, along with Ms. Wilson, who played a duet on piano and trombone. A wonderful way to end 2017.
What could be better than hot cocoa? And cookies to go with it? Taylor Parks Elementary School students from Ms. Gorski’s and Mrs. Abramas’s classrooms had a blast decorating sugar cookies and then eating them along with some wonderful hot cocoa – with marshmallows of course. Great parent volunteers helped the students ice, sprinkle and glitter these treats, and mixed the cocoa. The parents had as much fun as the students.

Fifth graders at McDowell Elementary School, led by Mr. Tomassion, have been running a food drive. There were challenges between classes, students vs. teachers and boys vs. girls to bring in the most food.
Mr. Tomassion's goal was to donate 1,000 items. And guess what? The Downriver Fish & Loaves Food Pantry came and picked up over 900 pounds of food which made the total 1,024 items!
Congratulations to McDowell for providing food stuffs to so many. Here’s a rap created by our very talented and kind, Mr. Tomassion.
A Food Drive Christmas
Twas the week before break and all through the school, The 5th graders were trying to act all cool!
The food drive was near the last day, with a few items short Mr. T was heard to say...
"I thought we could hit 1000 as sure as can be, but we're a few cans short as you can see!
When all of a sudden from her office Ms. Borg sprang with glee...
She said, "I have the cans we're short, right here with me!"
So the students cheered, all proud of themselves and I believe I saw Santa turn to his elves,
He said, "I can't believe how much they gave this year, many more will have a Merry Christmas," and in his eye was a tear!
