Battle of the Books (3rd-6th)
3rd-6th grade students will participate in the reading challenge called the Battle of the Books. Students will be grouped into teams of 4-5 students from their class that will participate in competitions against other teams answering questions from the books on their book list. The more books they read, the higher their chances are of winning the March Madness tournament that will be taking place during the first couple weeks of March. Last year the winning teams were invited to Momentum Indoor Rock Climbing gym and spent a couple hours with their coaches climbing and having a blast in their new Funtopia. X-Games rock-climbing gold medalist Aaron Shamy provided an assembly to the students on goal setting and was also there with the students on the day of the field trip.
Reflections * (K-6th)
National PTA Reflections is America’s oldest and largest arts education program of its kind. The program was developed to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Since then, the Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork. Each year, students in Grades Pre-K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through film production, dance choreography, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.
Great Artist * (K-6th)
Our PTA is proud to sponsor and coordinate the Great Artist program at our school. The Great Artist Program is a volunteer-based, turnkey elementary art education program for grades K–6.

The Great Brain Project (1st-2nd)
To become a Great Brain, a child chooses a topic in which he or she is interested, researches the topic in‐depth using a variety of sources and keeping careful records of all findings. The child then plans and makes a presentation before an authentic school audience of classmates and other invited guests. A Great Brain research project is more intensive than regularly assigned schoolwork. Curiosity, creativity, commitment, and perseverance are needed to complete such an independent study. A strict set of guidelines and steps must be followed to accomplish the goals of the project, but the rewards of accomplishment and self‐esteem that result are well worth the efforts of students and parents. For an exciting adventure in learning, we invite you to begin a Great Brain research project.
