Finding the Perfect Gift!
The Sharon PTO Holiday Shoppe was held for students from Dec. 3-6. Here, Mrs. Jill Zeiger helps out 2nd grader Carly Coustillac with her shopping. There were so many great items to choose from!
This year our school reading theme is “Under the Sea with Literacy.” We will focus on author’s purpose and see that reading can not only inform us but also is a great tool to entertain us and sometimes can persuade our way of thinking. Reading opens our minds so that we can understand new points of view and learn about new ideas and places we never could have imagined. Every student is asked to become part of our Reading Club! All you have to do is get into the habit of reading each night and record your minutes on a monthly calendar. Students who complete the required reading will earn a variety of incentives throughout the year. Students who participate each month of the year will celebrate by coming to a special Beach Party on May 9. Don’t be left out to sea, be sure to read each month.
To help Sharon Elementary be the best school on the planet requires everyone to respect each other. We need to all create a beautiful school by cleaning up after ourselves, completing our work so that we are proud of our efforts and treating each and every person the way we want to be treated. Kindness and polite behavior in our words and actions will make for a wonderful year! Below is an acrostic poem to remind you about making this school year one that is out of this world!
