The second grade have been learning about goods, services, and where our food comes from in Social Studies class. Pat Lentz was kind enough to give us a tour of the Red and White Market and teach us some fascinating facts about our food. We now realize that the most healthy foods in the store are found around the outside edges, in the refrigerator sections. The bread truck comes four days a week. Also, area people eat a lot of fried chicken!

The High School Painting class started the year by learning the technique of paint pouring to create a painting.
With this technique paint is mixed with a painting medium, either Flotrol or Liquitex Pouring Medium to increase the fluidity of the paint. Silicone is added to the paint mixture, this causes the paint to separate into bubbles or cells. There are several different ways to apply the paint mixture to the canvas, the students chose to use the flip cup method. In this method all colors are added to a cup or bucket; then the canvas, if it is small, is placed on top of the cup and the whole thing if flipped. The canvas is then tilted so the paint runs and swirls. Before the paint dries the students use a small butane torch to cause the cells of different colored paint to come to the surface.
On Friday, August 31st, McAndrew Elementary held their monthly celebration in the gym.
Throughout the month of August, students were given recognition slips each time they were ‘caught’ meeting or exceeding the expectations of the August Mission: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible.
Overall, there were 379 positive recognition slips handed out throughout the month.
Mr. Childers and Mrs. Jacobsen drew winning names from different bags students were able to place their names in each time they received a positive recognition slip. The bags the students could choose to put their names in were ‘Ice Cream with the Principal’, ‘Lunch with the Principal’, ‘Scholastic Book Coupons’, and ‘Extra Recess’. There was also a ‘Class of the Month’, which was awarded to the class that received the most positive recognition slips per student for the entire month of August.
The winners of the ‘Ice Cream with the Principal’ were Tinley B., Jaylee G., Asher S., Daina B., Puridy H., Julia A., and Landon S.
The winners of the ‘Scholastic Books Coupons' were Emersyn H., Tygan S., Dawson R., and Brandon M. (not pictured).
The winner of the ‘Extra Recesses’ was Holden B.
The winner of ‘Lunch with the Principal’ was Jaxon H.
Lastly, the ‘Class of the Month’ was Mrs. Pollock’s Kindergarten Class.
The September Mission is to ‘Choose Kindness’ at all times.
Mr. Childers reiterated the point that it isn’t always easy to ‘Be Kind’, but we must work toward that goal in order to continue meeting our year-long mission: Being Safe, Being Respectful, and Being Responsible. “I challenge you to ask any of our McAndrew Elementary students what the Bulldog Way is…because we’re working on uniting our school (and community) through a common language of positivity.", Mr. Childers stated. "Our students know the expectations and are truly working to meet and exceed them each day, whether they are at school or out in the community. The students are ‘Our Why’ and our reason for believing in the future. We have to work as a community to give them the best shot we possibly can to succeed.”
