December Counseling Lessons are all about Conflict Resolution. We learned about making and keeping friends and skills that help us get along with our peers.
Rose Bud Pee-Wee Basketball Games kicked off and it's always fun to see our little ones show off their athletic abilities. Last year we had many of our teams win their District Championships.
Mrs. Monique Davis did a wonderful job on her Winter Music Performance! Our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders showed off their amazing talents in the vocal arts.
Student Council sold hot chocolate and cookies at the Performance. This year they also hosted a Holiday Shoppe to give students an opportunity to shop for their parents and family.
Student Council also hosted a Cereal Drive and raised over 500lbs if cereal for local food pantries. Mrs. Garrard's class raised the most, Mrs. Teague's class was second, and Mrs. Wingert's took third. The kids work hard on this project, but so do our teachers and parents. We couldn't do it without them!
At our Monthly December Assembly, Mrs. Kirkpatrick recognized students for reading with the RISE award. And a few teachers volunteered to be decorated like trees by their students. These assemblies are always a lot of fun. They are held each month to recognize students, to review character skills learned each month, and to to increase motivation and morale in our student body.
On the last days of December there were lots of hands on learning projects and several special visitors even made an appearance.
The Rose Bud community never ceases to amaze me with it's giving spirit and the caring hearts that I see during this time.
