Safety scenarios

As I mentioned in a post back in November, we are conducting safety scenarios with the kids at school.  Today we practiced another conversation as to the best way to keep safe.  This was in response to a scenario that was shared with the children.   We do reinforce with the children that these are just drills.   Fifth graders teased me that I reminded everyone that it was a DRILL at least 7 times in one minute.   :)

There are different levels of conversations, based on the age/grade of your child. Our goal is always to keep a sense of calm, but keep children educated about responses.  Please ask your child about this conversation.  If you have any questions about these drills or scenarios, please do not hesitate to call my office at 284-4128.

Celebrating various careers

On Friday (and today for PM kindergarten), our students dressed up like a future worker.    It was fun to walk around and see the different outfits representing various employment opportunities.   Thank you for taking the time to discuss the importance of the many job fields that our children may be interested in.    These are important conversations.

Pennsylvania State Police ~ we applaud you!


I just wanted to take some time and convey my sincere appreciation to the Pennsylvania State Police troopers who protect our school.   They are very vigilant and always looking out for our building, staff members and students at our school.   We are so lucky to have their watchful eye and I want to recognize their efforts.   If you are ever in the building volunteering and you see one of these officers, please go introduce yourself and thank them for their protection.

Have a great evening.

Drummers at Martic

I love my job for so many reasons, but I especially love the things I get to observe during the day.  Here are three beginning drummers working with Mr. Dutton. They are working on playing the “paradiddle” – a hand pattern of R L R R or L R L L.  Take a peek by clicking below.
