We are having a tough time lately with our students and staff alike getting sick. Many have stomach aches, headaches, sore throats, nausea, vomiting, and some even are spiking fevers. Students all the way from PK through seniors out sick, and some are testing positive for influenza A or B, or strep throat. I have spoken with Cindy Mosley RN from the Sullivan County Health Department (SCHD) regarding the multiple local cases of flu lately, and what we need to do to help prevent it's spreading and in caring for those who have the flu. Much of the advice mainly involves stepping up our routine efforts to maintain cleanliness and . . .

As many of you are aware, Green City Elementary School was identified as a Focus School by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education during the 2012 school year. This identification was due to having low achievement of those students identified as a part of a subgroup.

“So what’s in our stands?”. ..Hopefully, respectful fans. As I sit in the stands during ballgames (of which there have been plenty over the years), it is interesting to watch the fans and hear the verbal messages sent out. I have come to realize the huge impact that those messages have on the players, coaches, other fans, and most importantly...our children.

Students in the third grade have had a quick start to the New Year. The first couple weeks were spent completing assessments, reviewing expectations, and reestablishing classroom routines. While doing this, we also participated in Innovation Day where students were able to create and produce a project of their choice based on what interested them. Last week, we celebrated our 100 th Day of School. This allowed for reflection time on how our school year has gone so far and where we would like to be by the end of the year. Each month third grade students fill out a form to track their monthly progress towards this end of the year . . .
The fifth graders at GC have been busy this month! When we came back from Christmas break, we had our innovation day. We've been working on completing Solar System Projects and we celebrated our 100th day of school! Our innovation day was a success. The students had the opportunity to choose any topic they wished. They were then given time to research their project and created a supply list. We had crafts, woodworking, cooking, building, paper mache and even research/poster presentations. Students were given one whole day at school to complete their project. This was a wonderful learning process for . . .
