News from SAFE
Our students enjoyed making cupcakes, slime and doing all kinds of fun and educational activities the past few weeks. The Siskiyou County Office of Education are encouraging all S.A.F.E. sites to participate in the 100 mile club. This is a program that encourages the students to walk or run 100 miles during the 2016- 2017 school year. Our students have enjoyed beginning their journey to 100 miles. Each student who participates will receive a medal at the end of the year.
Student Council Every
FRIDAY is HAT FRIDAY ~ Student Council collects $1.00 from students who want to wear their hat indoors during the day. Students can purchase a stamp before school in the Gym.
Melrose Severin, Justice Gordon, Christian Galindo, Steven Weidner, Kayla Zarco-Alvarez and Jamila Thomas: Showing “student behavior” in the classroom is very important. I am pleased to say that these students pay attention to the teacher during learning time. They do their work without complaining and always try to do their best. They show classroom Cub Character. I’m proud of them! ~ Mrs. Poloni
