We were all winners at our first all school assembly in the gym! We started with a visit from Howl. Our fifth grade students led us in our first focus word EFFORT! It was fun to do some cheers together. We also heard the school results for the book fair coin collection. All of our effort together raised $1501.03. Thanks to those families that participated. Mr. Schultz's class raised the most money. We are happy they can spend a little extra at the book fair the end of October. Finally there was a prize drawing for all of the tickets each student earned through dojo points. Ask your child how they spent their Wolfpack tickets. Some saved some for the school store and some entered raffles.

Our big learning this week was that we have circles and spheres. We used playdoh to make a sphere and quickly flatten into a circle. These two fellows below made circles at choice time. It is great when children have time to go back and connect learning to other times in the day. We also nibbled our shape of the week at snack time. Thank you to those who remembered to bring the shape in on Friday! We even had a real pancake. Next week we will look closer at a triangle.
