Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

December, Lunchroom, Learning Commons

​Wow! Winter weather is finally upon us as we move quickly through the month of December. I would like to thank all the families who made it to our Learning Conferences recently. Students were very excited to share their learning journey with their parents and I know that students created new, achievable learning goals to focus on for the next part of their school year.

December’s school calendar is filling up at Scenic Acres. Be sure to mark your calendar for all of the happenings at school: Friday, Dec. 7 is a professional learning day for our teachers and there is no school for students. Our Festival of Songs will occur on Tuesday, December 18 from 10:30-11:00 am. Students will showcase some of their musical talents ending with a short sing-a-long in the gym that morning. Thursday, December 20 is Fun Lunch day and Friday, December 21 is Pajama Day and an Early Dismissal Friday. The Special Events committee from School Council will also be creating a craft with students during that morning.

We have had a recent change to our lunchroom staff. The staff and students said farewell to Mrs. Kumar last Thursday. Mrs. Kumar has accepted a position at another school and will be working as an Educational Assistant. We wish her well and know that she will enjoy working with many children at her new school. We are in the process of hiring another lunchroom supervisor and should have someone in place before the winter break.

Our Student Leadership team has been very busy creating posters and announcements informing students about the fundraising they would like to continue doing for our sister school. The leadership students will be hosting two popcorn sales in December, Thursday Dec. 6 and Friday Dec. 14. Students can purchase a cup of popcorn for $1. Student Leadership is also asking families to send rinsed, refundable bottles to school for our annual bottle drive during December and January. All proceeds will go to the purchasing of supplies for the new classroom at our sister school.

On behalf of the staff at Scenic Acres School I wish all families a safe and happy holiday and much joyous time spent with family and friends. Please note that students do not return to school until Tuesday, January 8th, 2019.

Happy Holidays!

Carol Hansen

From the Lunchroom:
Well… almost halfway through our school year, and our helping hands from the leadership group have been a great help. They are continuing to help with the younger students, as well as lending a hand with our recycling and composting. They sure know their stuff, and are eager to assist.
From the Learning Commons:
Happy Holidays from the learning commons. All our holiday books have been displayed, and the students have already started checking them out. Please encourage you children to check out the books to bring home. They make for great reading out loud when you are drinking hot chocolate, and sitting around the fire.
