I promise to be an honest, hard working student
To obey our school rules
To respect people and property
To take pride in our school
To be a role model for fellow students
And to be a good citizen at all times
When Ireen Westrack, principal at Mills Pond Elementary School, makes a promise to students, she keeps it. In the beginning of February, Ms. Westrack challenged the school to read 50,000 minutes during Parents As Reading Partners month.
If they met that challenge, Ms. Westrack promised to kiss a pig. Not only did the school meet her challenge, but they far exceeded the goal. On March 1, local 700-pound hog Bruce made the trip to the school and Ms. Westrack delivered on her promise in front of the whole school.
To kick off fundraising efforts for its upcoming Boosterthon Fun Run to benefit the school’s Parent-Teacher Association, Mills Pond Elementary School held an assembly on Feb. 26. Themed “Castle Quest,” the PTA set up the entrance of the school as a castle and each student was outfitted with a crown. The fun run will take place in the gym on March 7.
Kindergartners at Mills Pond Elementary School celebrated being 100 days smarter on Feb. 15. Students made necklaces with 100 beads, made a structure using 100 cups and counted to 100 in different ways.
Students in Melissa Taylor’s fourth-grade class and Joanne Ciappa’s third
grade class used the Next Generation Science Standards to create rocks
as seen in the Olympic event of curling.
