PE

3rd- 6th Grade finished up their basketball unit right before Winter break. Students learned skills like dribbling, shooting, passing, defending, and rebounding. Students also participated in 2 vs. 2 basketball games and learned to work together with a teammate. Students will begin their second round of fitness testing over the course of the next few weeks. Continue to remind students to wear the correct shoes on PE days!

Counseling
 

Counseling

Pencils sharpened in their case. Bells are ringing, let’s make haste. School’s beginning, dreams to chase. ALL are welcome here.


We will be reading the book “All Are Welcome Here” this month during our counseling lessons. Younger students will learn how we are the same, yet different. They will learn how we can still be friends and be kind to one another. Older students will learn that we may have differences, but we should always show respect and make others feel safe from teasing because of their differences.

Please reach out to me at anytime if you have questions or if I can be of help. My email is downeyc@smithville.k12.mo.us

The new year is full of exciting things starting with Hooked on Books. Is a gently-used children’s book drive appropriate for infants to 14-year-olds. The Book drive will run from January 28th through February 8th. We will have collection containers located at EHE. More information to come.

 

 

The library is a busy place to help with the traffic we are trying to raise money to purchase iPads, so that we can have student self checkout stations. These iPads will allow students to checkin and checkout books independently. If you would like to help us with this please donate athttps://donorschoo.se/e/50hSrScJ9S any amount helps! Thank you in advance!
