moose program CONNEXUS ENERGY WILDLIFE OUTREACH PROGRAM

Wargo Naturalist Cody Rosetti shared interesting moose facts and information with our students. His presentation supported our International Baccalaureate units of inquiry about animal and plant habitats and environmental adaptations.
 
FIFTH GRADERS PERFORM    
     The Scandia Elementary fifth graders performed "Winter Celebrations Around the World" on Thursday, December 8, at Scandia Elementary IB World School. Under the direction of music educator, Kelly Larson, the students performed songs from Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America. Our thanks go to Elim Lutheran Church for loaning the Lucia costumes for the performance.
 
SIXTH GRADE CONCERT 
 
    Our sixth grade students performed a short concert for our students and any families on Wednesday, December 21. The instrumentalists especially have had only a few months to learn the basics with their instrument, so I commend them to preparing for a concert already! 
 
winter WINTER WEATHER REMINDERS
    As the cold weather season has arrived, we would like to take this opportunity to remind families that students should bring the appropriate outside clothing--boots, hats, mittens, snow pants, winter coats. Also, please remember our policy of "an inch or more of snow on the ground means boots on the feet!" Our students will go outside each day for recess unless the temperature is down to minus 10 degrees either through actual temperature or wind chill.
     Finally, if you child is feeling well enough to attend school, the expectation is that he/she will go outside for recess. We ask for a physician's note for a student to stay indoors during recess.
     Please contact the office at 651-982-3300 if you have any questions.
 
 
PTO Meeting PTO MEETING

BOX TOPS   BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
     Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school. Last year, we earned $693.00 for Scandia Elementary IB World School and used the funds for playground supplies for recess and to support student activities such as Word Masters and Continental Math League.
   This school year, our goal is to earn $1,000! We will continue to collect Box Tops all year, and if we reach our goal, the PTO will host an ice cream social at the end of the school year as a thank you to our students!
   Thanks for sending your Box Tops to school, and keep clipping!!
