Fourth grade led a service learning project to collect shoes to donate to our FRYSC. They provide shoes to any students who needs a pair throughout the day if something happens to their shoes. Our goal for CCES was to collect 100 pairs in three weeks. Our local Cash Express business said they would donate pizzas to the homeroom who brought in the most pairs of shoes and Mrs. Kara's class won this prize! We exceeded our goal and collected 206 pairs of shoes! Thank you to everyone who helped us with this project!

We had our first ever CCES dance for 3rd-5th graders last Friday night and it was a blast! The dance lasted a couple of hours and we sold pizza, water, glow in the dark items, and students could have their pictures made in the picture corner.
It was a great fundraiser and we have a special treat planned for our kids- it's top secret though! We had the dance because our fourth grade students had a class election and each president and vice president had to run on a platform. After the election, the elected officials had a special lunch with our administration at school to discuss the changes they wanted to see take place. The president and vice president from Studio 214 wanted to have a dance to raise money to update our school. They actually wanted to have one every Friday night from 7:00-11:00 and Ms. Lisa said we would start with one from 4:00-6:00. (ha ha) It was so much fun and I look forward to the next one!

Here is a great link that a friend shared with me recently that shows all the standards "unpacked". This is so helpful because it gives specific content for each grade level that our students should be learning int he state of Kentucky!
