A new and busy week.

Just a reminder that this week is Red Ribbon week. Tomorrow (Monday) is crazy sock day.

Tutoring is still on for Tuesday after school. If that doesn't work for you, let me know and I can stay a different day.

The Halloween party is Friday afternoon. Students may wear their costumes and parents are welcome to attend.

We are also in the middle of our attendance challenge. The grade level (5-8) with the highest percent attendance through Thursday will earn a kickball time on Friday. 5th grade is currently in 1st place. Lets keep it up!

Friday is also the last day to turn in Box Tops & Labels for Education. Please send those in if you have anymore.

Coach Brosius is getting ready to start his 3rd season at Clever and has compiled a record of 32-21 while here.  Coach Brosius has a passion for the game of basketball and teaching the fundamentals of the game to young players.  There is a strong emphasis on character as well and the importance of having character in the game of basketball.  Coach Brosius will try to make the game as enjoyable as possible for the boys and young men, while also emphasizing the importance of hard work for the success of a basketball program.  This one day clinic is designed to teach the fundamentals to the young men, while also allowing for some game play and a 3 on 3 tournament toward the end of the clinic.  Each player will be given a t-shirt.  We are doing this clinic at this time to help boys get prepared for their upcoming basketball season.  The Clever boys’ basketball coaching staff and high school players will be helping out with the clinic.  Proceeds from the clinic will directly go toward helping the high school boys’ basketball team with team meals on game days.

Completed registration form may be returned to your elementary teachers or to the school office.  Any questions, contact Coach Brosius at by cell phone at (636) 236-5326.  You will not be contacted prior to start of the clinic.  Everyone will start in the Upper Elementary gym for an introductory meeting, before being split up with the 2nd-3rdgraders going down to the Middle School gym and the 4th-5thgraders remaining in the Upper Elementary gym.  Everyone will meet again in the Upper Elementary gym for some final announcements at the end of the clinic so that is where parents may pick them up and drop them off.  Parents are welcome to stay.  The cost of the clinic is $20.

A messy room

If you were to walk into our room, you would think a dumpster exploded! But that is fine with me. We have begun our marble maze project. They are coming along very well! We will work on them tomorrow and again on Thursday (breaking on Wednesday for D.A.R.E.). Students are welcome to bring in more supplies that they can use on their mazes. I can't wait to see them all finished and running marbles!

Also, please ask your child if they have a lab report to finish. I still have several students, in all 3 classes, who need to finish their lab reports before the movie day on Friday! They ALL know if they have one to finish or not because their name is on the board if it is not completed! 

*Movie day is Friday and marks the end of 1st quarter. All students will attend unless they have a missing assignment.
