Please remember to send in any meal/milk money on Monday’s in an envelope, or baggie with students name on it.   This will ensure proper credit.  If you have more than one student in school you may send it in with one student and just write both names on the envelope.

Please continue to save box tops.  The school also collects used ink cartridges from printers.

The 2nd and 3rd graders are looking for Lego’s and buttons for the classroom.  If you have either one, please contact Mrs. Hill.  And Mrs. McCutcheon’s Pre-K class is looking for empty grated cheese containers.

The Alexander Elementary School Library time this week was shortened for some of the classes due to an early release day on Wednesday, September 21st.  Luckily for grades 4-8 this didn’t effect their time for study hall, research and checking out books.  For those who had no work hanging over their heads there was a fun fall word search to do.  Second and third graders continued to work on their color by number project after they signed out books and heard the story, “A Pocket Full of Kisses” by Audrey Penn.  The students mostly impacted by the early release day were the pre-k class and kindergarten and first Graders.  Rhonda Oakes went down to the pre-k class to read a book to them entitled “A Night in the Country” by Cynthia Rylant.  The students really enjoyed the art work and making animal sounds.  Kindergarten and 1st grade had an abbreviated library class where they were able to play the library rules game and check out books before heading back to class.
