Over 35 4th grade students have volunteered to help kindergarten students during the kindergarten lunch period. 4th graders will help kindergarteners get their lunches, open packages, making sure everyone has napkins and utensils, collect trash and assist with lining up at the end of the lunch. To participate, 4th graders have agreed to give up one recess period a week to support kindergarten. Our kindergarteners love to get to know the older students and our 4th graders set a wonderful example of how to maintain SOAR behaviors in the lunchroom. Thank you to all of the 4th graders who have oﬀered to help.

Students in grades 3 – 5 will perform on Thursday evening, May 3 beginning at 6:30. Please note the date change for 3-5 grade performance; there was an error on the district calendar you may have received at the beginning of the year. We are excited to share what your students have been learning! More detailed information will be coming after spring break. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Manchester or Mrs. Luce. Thank you.
Aspen’s second grade students were excited to meet five-year-old Maggie, who is a reading dog. Her owner, Ms. Sharon Dugan, brought her to Aspen as part of a literacy lesson. Ms. Dugan read the book “Brave Norman,” a true story about a blind dog who saved a drowning swimmer. The children took turns reading pages of the book and petting Maggie. Students were instructed on dog safety before they pet her.
