Stamping Ground Challenges Students
During a regular assembly at Stamping Ground Elementary School, Principal Paul Krueger recognized 58 students who earned all A's on their report card and another 89 students who earned both A's and B's. Krueger discussed the character trait of the month, cooperation, and identified students in all grade levels who displayed this trait.
Library Media Specialist Terri Harris awarded book fair gift certificates for avid student readers and participants in the school's Accelerated Reader (AR) program before Mr. Krueger announced the names of students in each class who had earned the highest points in AR.
With support of the school's PTO, all students who achieved perfect attendance for the first semester were presented with $5 and were entered in a raffle for two bikes awarded to one boy and one girl.
Obviously Stamping Ground Elementary School has a lot to celebrate, including the announcement of an exciting new initiative to challenge students and staff members alike. SGES has designed their own family crest communicating the determination of the school, "We Do Difficult Things."
The crest is divided into four key areas: Physical, Academics, Character and Healthy Choices. Principal Krueger offered a challenge for students this month in each of the four areas, all of which will require determination to accomplish.
Good luck, Stamping Ground Elementary School, as you work to strengthen your body to meet the physical challenge of sit-ups and jumping jacks as well as show your strength of character through 26 random acts of kindness. Students are trying to improve one letter grade on their report cards in the academic area and will strive to make a healthy choice and limit television and video games to 30 minutes per day for one full week as part of this school-wide challenge.
