Miss J's Spanish classes just finished reading the novel El Capibara con Botas before Thanksgiving. Since the novel is about animals that live in the Amazon Rainforest and Galapagos Islands, students decided to raise money to adopt animals from Ecuador! 3rd hour adopted a blue-footed booby, and 6th hour chose a jaguar. Students raised $120 during the unit in order to symbolically adopt these animals through the World Wildlife Fund!

Please help welcome our two newest staff members! Mr. Carson Iserhoth is our 8th Grade Boys Basketball Coach. He has already begun working with the boys to build their skills, helping them become a strong team, and showing them how to have fun doing it. Also welcome Mr. Wade O'Dell as our Custodial/Maintenance Supervisor. Wade will start working with Mr. Mike Huss for the next month, prior to Mr. Huss' retirement. Mr. O'Dell comes to us from Harrison Schools, is a Comet graduate and has many years of experience, expertise and certifications in these areas. We are excited to have him on board. While Mr. Huss will be with us another month and we are excited for him to spend time with his wife and grandkids, he will be greatly missed. Mr. Huss has so many skills in the area of maintenance, transportation and custodial work, but our favorite times to see him were when he was working with kids. The boys especially at the elementary school connect so well with Mr. Huss and when one was having a bad day, he sometimes was the first person they would listen to. We watched him tie ties for elementary kids who've come dressed up for picture day or a special lunch in their rooms. He is hard working, diligent and dedicated and his time here is so appreciated. Thank you, Mr. Huss!

These are some of the posters that the elementary classes made to show their school what kindness looks like for the elementary school's week of kindness, which was sponsored by the NEHS students. Judges will decide which one is the best at getting the kindness message across and that class will win an ice cream sandwich party!

From Mrs. LeFevre: Last week during Kindness Week, NEHS members were getting ready to deliver apple cider and donut holes to all of the classrooms. It was a great opportunity for classes to have a snack together in celebration of Kindness Week and for the NEHS group to work together as a team.

Mrs. Lynch reports: The 6th grade used their Math classes last week to help the PTO with the Apple Pie and Scrip card orders! Students worked in teams to check orders, count money and tabulate totals with paper/pencil. Each order was then double checked for accuracy with a calculator. Students had to initial each order to prove they agreed with what was on the paper. Every year the Coleman Elementary PTO works hard to provide field trip bussing for all classrooms along with family events and end of year activities. PTO also pays for all 6th graders to attend Mystic Lake Camp.
