Great Grizzly Reading Challenge

The Great Grizzly Reading Challenge will kick off on March 1!  Our theme this year is camping and the great outdoors. 

Kids have an opportunity to win fun prizes by reading.  Once the program starts, stop by the office to see the fun camping themed reading nook.  There is no limit on how much your child can read.  The more a class reads, the more prizes they get.  Reading logs are due each Friday with a parent signature.  Our school goal is 200,000 minutes!  Please encourage your child to help us meet our goal!


Brown Kindness Challenge

Have you heard about the Brown Kindness Challenge from your Grizzly, If not, we are using the month of February to really polish our kind/considerate/caring skills.

There are two “Be Kind” Bingo sheets, one for upper-grade students, and one for primary-grade students, and are encouraging our students to do one or two things each day that encourage kindness.  It can be as easy as saying hello to someone in a different language or stepping out of your comfort zone to eat lunch with someone you don’t know well.  


Bear Hug Tower

We want to give a HUGE shout out to Chet Cook for building the wonderful Bear  Hug Tower!  The kids are anxious to fill it up!

What is a Bear Hug?

Throughout the year students are given tickets called Bear Hugs by their teachers, meal duty supervisors, and other staff members. Students earn these tickets by exhibiting positive behaviors at school.  When the Bear Hug Tower is full, the students earn an extra recess!
