August Birthday & Mission Celebration
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.”
