What are Kindness Rocks? Kindness rocks are rocks that make someone's day brighter. They have kind and inspiring words or just a picture on them. Students in grades K-5 each had the opportunity to decorate a rock with words, colors, and drawings for the student leadership project. Great way to include everyone in a project focused on spreading kindness! #bekind
We love Mona Shores!

Ties and Tiaras was a blast!! The girls looked beautiful and had fun dancing the night away, eating Dippin' Dots ice cream, making their own tiaras, and taking pictures. They even left the party with a special gift. Thank you to all the parents and the PTO for hosting this memorable event for our students!!
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yZFHD2awBj2uIIsy774cql34_GsNNZf8/view?usp=share_link Thanks to your support and generosity this year, we were able to fund a BRAND NEW SENSORY ROOM at Churchill!!!! 👏 “We are very excited to have our new sensory room up and running! Our sensory room provides a space that is devoted to 'developing the senses.' Each piece of equipment serves a specific purpose. The equipment may be used to help students reduce stress, reduce aggression, increase focus, motivate learning, increase interaction, and assist with sensory integration. This is a space that can be used by ALL students, despite their abilities. We share this space with our physical and occupational therapists, who are available to help provide guidance, and assist our students with their sensory needs.” - Nina Mulder Occupational Therapist
The Girls on the Run program has been great this spring. The students are committed to doing their best and the coaches have been amazing. Thank you for the leadership you're providing these girls!!!

These two rock stars have taken over today to lead the building. They are serving as principal and doing an amazing job. Biggest decision...indoor vs. outdoor recess. They decided to go with outdoors! :)
Our PTO sold Spring Smencils (Smelly Pencils) today at lunch. They were a big hit!!
March has been full of PAWSOMENESS!!
