Kindergarten celebrated the 100th day of school with many creative counting activities!

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!
