Celebration Assemblies

School-wide assemblies are held monthly to celebrate learning. Each month, a different grade level and a special area (Art, Music, Physical Education, Library, and Technology) represent their learning in an original way to share with our whole school. At the beginning of each assembly, the B.E.A.R.S. pledge is recited. Safeties of the Month are honored, the Book of the Month (reflecting the Character Counts trait of that month) is introduced, and Super Readers, B.E.A.R. Hugs, and birthdays are recognized.


Reading Olympics

Students in grades 4 and 5 form teams to participate in the County Reading Olympics Competition that is held in the spring of each school year. Staff members volunteer as coaches who facilitate the reading of required books with each team while promoting team-building and cooperation among team members.


Student Council

Elected representatives from third, fourth, and fifth grade classrooms, under the supervision of a faculty sponsor, plan and organize special-themed spirit days throughout the year. They are also involved in many community and national service projects, coordinating fund raising events that benefit many organizations, including the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society, Relay for Life (American Cancer Society), and Keystone Opportunity Center.
