Thank you to all that worked and donated to make Operation Gratitude a success! The food items collected gave 110 meals to local veterans! Kudos to Mrs. Morgan and all the students that participated and donated!

Mrs. Morgan's 4th grade classes will partner with Scioto County RSVP and COMPASS Community Health to collect food and donations for our local veterans. The goal is to serve 100 Scioto County veterans. Kick-off for collecting non-perishable food items begins September 12th. Donations and food can be brought to school between September 13th and November 8th. 

Suggested Items: Kindergarten & 1st Grade > Spaghetti noodles and jars of sauce: 2nd Grade > soups, crackers, peanut butter: 3rd Grade > Canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned meats: 4th Grade > Loaves of bread, snack packs of crackers, cookies, cakes: 5th Grade > Spaghetti noodles and jars of sauce.

Donations can be left in homeroom classrooms and picked up periodically. The homeroom in each building with the highest amount of donations will receive a pizza party! Food and donations will be delivered to the veterans on November 11, 2016, Veterans Day.

We encourage everyone to participate in this important community service!

Free Educational Website Resources

Free Educational Web Resources Links provides a list of free education websites that provides lessons, worksheets, games, videos, supplements, and other useful tools for teachers, parents, and students. Students are familiar with, and have accounts set up with some of these applications. Check grade level for specific sites used in their classrooms.

Typing offers free keyboarding lessons including, home/top/bottom rows, games, timed tests and reports. All 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students have accounts already set up for this application. We encourage students to log into their accounts and practice keyboarding. Many assessments/tests are computer exams requiring students to type their answers. The more confident they are at the keyboard, the easier to express themselves, the greater their success!
