    Neil Armstrong’s Family Center is now open. What book adventure are you ready to take? Our Family Center is full of books for you to check out and read with your family.  Check out up to 3 books when you come. Each week you come, you can choose one keeper book.  Often, there will also be pencils, book marks, or erasers to choose from.  The Family Center is open on Tuesdays and Fridays, from 7:30-8:30am and 3:10-4:00pm. Mrs. Christina Smith is excited to meet you and your family! Each student must be accompanied by an adult.  

    Parents, we need your help!  Please encourage your Positive Astros to read at home and to carry a book with them.  Students are asked to read a book during dismissal as well. The top ten readers are posted in the hall for the students to see.  Students can earn AR shirts when they reach their grade-level AR expectations. The students get so excited to see their names on the list.  We have a student that is approaching one million words read.  

    Every month, the classes have the opportunity to earn the Traveling “Legacy” Award.  In order to earn the award, students must:
    Criteria #1: 100% of students taking an AR test for the month.  Kindergarten - either 100% of students taking an AR Test or 100% of students mastering 10 new sight words per month.
    Criteria #2: Class Average of a minimum pass rate or higher in both iReady Math and Reading.  Students will earn Spirit Sticks monthly by completing a minimum of 5 sessions monthly with the minimum pass rate.
    Criteria #3: Class with the highest increase in “Words Read” that month from the previous month. The classes that meet the three criteria receive a traveling “Legacy” trophy with a banner that proudly hangs outside their doors.  The students have until the end of September to help their classes earn the traveling “Legacy” trophy.  

     A message from Coach Combs - Students need to wear tennis shoes every day to school for their safety.  Crocs, flip flops, dress shoes, and boots are not dress code approved as foot wear.  Just a reminder, please do not drop your children off before 8:00 a.m.  There is no adult supervision at that time.  Thank you

  • Drop a Pebble in the Water

    Drop a pebble in the water: just a splash, and it is gone;
    But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on,
    Spreading, spreading from the center, flowing on out to the sea.
    And there is no way of telling where the end is going to be.

    Drop a pebble in the water: in a minute you forget,
    But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet,
    And those little waves a-flowing to a great big wave have grown;
    You've disturbed a mighty river just by dropping in a stone.

    Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute it is gone;
    But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on.
    They keep spreading, spreading, spreading from the center as they go,
    And there is no way to stop them, once you've started them to flow.

    Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute you forget,
    But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet,
    And perhaps in some sad heart a mighty wave of tears you've stirred,
    And disturbed a life was happy ere you dropped that unkind word.

    Drop a word of cheer and kindness: just a flash and it is gone;
    But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on,
    Bearing hope and joy and comfort on each splashing, dashing wave
    Till you wouldn't believe the volume of the one kind word you gave.

    Drop a word of cheer and kindness: in a minute you forget;
    But there's gladness still a-swelling, and there's joy a-circling yet,
    And you've rolled a wave of comfort whose sweet music can be heard
    Over miles and miles of water just by dropping one kind word.”
