    A Hearty Thank You to Heroes

    A Thanksgiving tradition continued at South Grove Elementary School as students and staff said thanks to local firefighters, police officers, veterans and members of the American Legion with a celebration and feast in the school kindergarten/grade 1 annex. Dressed in various costumes, students entertained their heroes by performing the “Turkey Twist” under the direction of music teacher Dr. Kathleen Conklin.  The students also performed using American Sign Language. Christina Mancuso, the school’s developmental reading specialist and lead teacher, coordinated the event. Board of Education members and central administrators were also invited to show their gratitude to these community heroes. The school also held a Thanksgiving feast in the main building for children in grades 2-5.

    Literary Café

    First grade Literary Café members are having a great time engaging in literacy activities. Each session students come to Mrs. Stottler’s classroom to “order” a literacy activity off of their Literary Café menu: reading fiction, reading nonfiction, creative writing, writing with a prompt, Chromebook activities, listening activities, book talk, and more! The Literary Café has been a relaxed, yet productive, way for students to interact, learn and think creatively.

    Diwali Brown Bag

    South Grove was honored to host a Brown Bag about Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights. Several of our very own South Grove moms facilitated this information and crafts Brown Bag. Over 60 students in grades 2 through five opted to participate during their recess time, in lieu of their usual activities. Students briefly heard about the cultural significance of this holiday and then had an opportunity to do a craft. Students enjoyed coloring and applying glitter, while traditional Indian music played in the background. A special thank you to our wonderful parent community, and we welcome your ideas for Brown Bags to enrich all students.

    South Grove’s Brown Bag Program offers a variety of optional recess-time experiences throughout the year as part of its Schoolwide Enrichment Program.
