Spirit Week: Core Knowledge Character Day

On Friday we got to dress up like a core knowledge character. We had a Jane Goodall, Abraham Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, Albert Einstein, Dorthy (from the Wizard of Oz, President Obama, a cowboy, Casey Jones, Davy Crockett, an Indian princess, and Cleopatra!

Spirit Week: Crazy Hair/Clash Day

This is my favorite spirit week theme! I love to clash (especially with lots of color) and it is so fun to see all of the hair styles. The crazy hair does tend to make everyone act a little crazy, but we still had fun!

The morning message

Every morning (and afternoon), there is a message on the board for the kids to read. In this last quarter, the message has mistakes in it that the kids have to fix: no periods, not starting with a capital, words spelled wrong, etc. Take a peek at the message for today and what the morning kids thought was wrong with it!

Spirit Week: Sports Day

I have been telling the kids all week that this is the "wear your favorite SAINTS stuff to school day" but many of them didn't listen. We did have quite a few kids with black and gold on though. But of course there are the kids who had to wear their Broncos gear!

Spirit week: Twin Day

This week is spirit week at our school! Today was Twin Day where people got to dress like twins. It was lots of fun!


A parent of a student from last year lent us her baby chicks for the day. We had so much fun with them. We got to pet them and hold them and they made cute tweet-tweet sounds all day long. It was a great way to celebrate spring!

Egg Hunt

We had a fantastic time hunting eggs! Thank you to all of the parents who helped hide the eggs. Everyone had a great time and it was so much fun to eat all the treats afterwards. We then read the Velveteen Rabbit which is always a kindergarten favorite!
