Mrs. Renchen's class at Shabbona had a "Marathon Day" today. They learned about the history of the marathon and watched some interesting videos about the route of the Chicago Marathon. We would like to wish Mrs. Renchen good luck in the Chicago Marathon on Sunday!
Mrs. Hammond's apple unit was a success. The students investigated apples, measured apples, sorted apples, read books about apples tasted apples, and made apple art. (Shabbona)
The Shabbona Bears tried their bear-y best for the month of September, and it was appreciated. Our Student Stars of the Month include Sofia Moreno-Rosas and Peter Manes! These Bears always give their best effort, and it shows! Sofia wants to change the world by following the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Peter wants to change the world with lots of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Our Staff Star is the wonderful Sharon Gero, who helps keep our students fed! With her on the job, the only roar you hear is from our students' mouths, not their stomachs! For the month of October, Shabbona will be focusing on the line, “I will always choose kindness and compassion” from our mantra. We can’t wait to see all of the warm-hearted actions our students engage in this month!
