From the Principal

Dear Steele Families,

Will you help us collect 5000 Box Tops by February 21? This would be 277 Box Tops per class and approximately 10 per student. I think we can do this! To encourage students and families to participate, we are having a competition to see which class is able to collect the most Box Tops. The class that collects the most will earn a celebration to be determined by the teacher and students! Please send Box Tops to the office with the class clearly marked on the bag. Thank you for your support!

We are very excited about this month’s Kids of Steele Community Service program. The theme is “Military Service”. Coach Jim Juliana, our own Ms. Grahf’s father, will be talking to the students about “The Forgotten Heroes Campaign.”

The Forgotten Heroes Campaign searches for veterans who have honorably served their country, and presents to them or their family member(s): medals; awards; ribbons and badges earned but were never received. A public ceremony is held to present the awards to the deserving veterans. The Forgotten Heroes Campaign also supports other Veteran’s organizations.

Next Wednesday, February 7, is the next Kids of Steele meeting. If your child would like to participate, please send a note to your teacher giving permission for your child to stay after school on Wednesday, February 7. Only students whose parents have provided permission via email to the teacher will be permitted to stay after school to participate.

In a recent all school service project, our students wrote letters to servicemen and servicewomen thanking them for their service to our country and for keeping us safe. The letters were incredibly thoughtful and conveyed a beautiful message of their love and gratitude.

The teachers and I will be busy analyzing student work and planning awesome learning experience for our students today!
We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Sincerely,
Cindy
