Clark Mills Students are Un “Bee” lievable
All fourth and fifth grade students participated in a preliminary Geography Bee in their classrooms and then on January 10, 2012, eleven finalists participated in the Championship Bee. Staff, students and parents attended the Geography Bee to find out who would be the school champion. After a close competition, one of our fifth grade boys became the Geography Bee Champion. After winning the school competition, this lucky winner had the opportunity to take a written test to see if he qualifies for the state level competition. We are anxiously awaiting the news!
The Geography Bee provided opportunities for our students to display their knowledge. We congratulate all the students who participated in the school “bee.” Thank you to Mr. Delcotto and Mrs. Riehl for their assistance in successfully organizing and implementing the Geography Bee at Clark Mills School.
Character Education in Action
Camfel Productions presented Get A Grip, a three screen multi-media assembly program that included up-to-date music and elementary aged children to engage the students. This assembly provided all of our students with useful information on how to exercise self-control in a variety of situations, such as if they are being bullied. Furthermore, the assembly discussed the importance of how self-control leads to strong friendships, success in school, and positive feelings about one’s self.
PTA Movie Matinee
On January 24th and 25th, many students at Clark Mills School attended an after school movie hosted by our wonderful PTA. The grade 1 and 2 students enjoyed watching RIO and the grades 3-5 students loved Mr. Poppers Penguins. The students enjoyed a delicious drink and snack as they watched the movie with their friends. What a fun time for all!
Hands Across Clark Mills
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, the students joined together in the hallway to listen to the CM Student Council Officers share Dr. King’s famous I HAVE A DREAM speech. Then the entire school joined together in song under the direction by our music teacher, Mrs. Chan.
