Kindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of School

Kindergarten celebrated the 100th day of school with many creative counting activities!  All of the Kindergarten students creatively decorated numerals from 1-100 out of a variety of materials to make a 100 quilt.  Ms. Coggin’s class made necklaces by stringing 10 sets of 10 Fruit Loops together.  They also made caterpillar hats by putting together numbers on circles that were counting by 10’s.

Kindergartners, along with the whole Roadrunner family, also look forward to viewing the “100 Days of Snoopy” display that Ms. Lynn, the library assistant, puts together each year with 100 snoopy dolls from her extensive personal collection!

Mr. Moff Teaches Beyond the Curriculum

Students from Mr. Moff’s fifth grade class gathered at one of the student’s houses to watch “Remember the Titans” together.  They chose the movie in honor of Black History Month.

Mr. Moff works hard to develop the “whole child” in his classroom.  He manages to focus on citizenship, friendship, confidence, and kindness as well as the required curriculum.  As part of this effort, he has also done other “off-campus” activities with his students such as bowling, trips to the Bounce House, and even camping over the course of his teaching career!

Year after year, students who have Mr. Moff as their teacher feel a sense of pride to be in his class.  He makes sure that every student feels like they are part of something special, and that they feel successful during their year with him.

Keep up the great work, Mr. Moff!
