The kids learned at an assembly today that we hit our goal of $20,000! They were beyond excited to find out there will be an inflatable obstacle course in PE for a day. Click HERE to hear their excitement!
They also enjoyed the "special performance" by Mr. Paulson, who rode into the gym on his UNICYCLE! He encouraged kids to try new things and learn new skills, just like he did as a child when he learned to ride the unicycle.
It was a great assembly...Top runners were honored, raffle prizes were announced and the kids' accomplishments for running and fundraiser were celebrated. The PTA couldn't be more proud of the students and their efforts and attitudes!
We have reached the end of Funds Run season! The PTA would like to thank our amazing students, families and staff for making it the most successful season in recent memory. The kids ran 2,597 laps and raised $19,405.66! This money will provide enriching activities and experiences for every Candalaria student. We couldn't do it without each of you -- THANK YOU!!
We would also like to thank these sponsors and encourage Candalaria families to show our gratitude with their patronage:
Winco Foods - Cash & Carry - Limeberry - Jamba Juice
Pietro's Pizza - Town & Country Bowling - Get Air!
Best Little Roadhouse - Gallagher's Fitness
STILL TO COME:
We are still accepting Funds Run donations in the office, if you have pledges that came in after the deadline. We also accept donations online at www.candalariapta.org.
All Candalaria parents and students are invited to our Open House on September 6th! Come see your classroom and meet your teacher, as well as the other Candalaria staff. Please feel free to bring your school supplies with you, if you have them. Parents, if you have medication for your child, this would be a great time to turn it in to the office. Parents of kindergarten students, you will have an opportunity to get your child's assessment time schedule if you haven't already.
At 6:30 p.m., after the Open House, we will have a gathering in the cafeteria for new parents and any other parents who would like more information about our school. You will learn about upcoming events planned for this year, various volunteer opportunities, and meet our principal, Mr. Karl Paulson, as well as some of our PTA members.
In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday, we invite our students to celebrate reading! We have some fun activities planned for students during this exciting week:
Tuesday, March 1st - Inside Out and Backwards Day! Get creative (like Dr. Seuss!) and wear your clothes inside out or backward - or both!
Wednesday, March 2nd - Two things will be going on...
Thursday, March 3rd - Crazy Hat Day! Dr. Seuss would love this! Wear your crazy hat for the day.
Friday, March 4th - No School. Enjoy your free day with a great book!
Thank you for helping us honor a man who shared his love of reading with children!
At Candalaria, students have been working hard on the "Husky Way" of doing things around the school.
In an effort to capture and reinforce those moments, staff members have started a video series that demonstrates our school-wide expectations.
Check it out!
Help! Our lost and found is overflowing with clothes! Please stop by and see if we have anything that belongs to someone in your family. There are lots of nice jackets and sweatshirts that will be missed now that cooler weather is upon us.
