There is only one week left in the Kris Wine contest. Please vote!! At press time we were in sixth place but if we all vote, we have the potential to earn more money to directly support art at Polaris.
Core Value – Fairness
Ten pennies, two nickels and a dime look different, they are different sizes different weights but they all have the same value. This is true of people as well. We look different on the outside but we are of equal value and deserve to be treated fairly.
Every now and then, something comes up where we divert from our discussion of the month’s Core Value. This occurred on Wednesday. A mystery student has been leaving folded paper airplanes around the school that contain a positive, motivational note. One such example is pictured below and I wanted to make sure that all students heard it.
Fairness abounds at Polaris! Congratulations to Bree, Christian, Ella, Finn, Johnny, Maru and Maryam.
Dorado’s Class Share
The children in Mrs. Dudley’s class worked on a special reader’s theater this week. The purpose was twofold. It helped challenge the kids to read in the way they speak. It also illustrated the idea of fairness. The play was based on the Three Little Pigs but it had some twists. Hopefully they can share those with you!
We are doing a drive to help New Horizons in Manchester, NH. We are going to make a drive where you can donate food and other items on New Horizon’s wishlist to help homeless people in our community. We are starting the drive, October 26 and donations end on November 19. We are doing it at Polaris. So you can send your donations in with your child. Donations will be stored in Mrs. Rainey’s room. Please contact Mrs. Rainey at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions. Thank you for helping us out!
