February COURAGE AssemblyThe COURAGE of the CUB!
Lights, Camera, Action....our season of state testing kicked off with a multi-media extravaganza that found our students cheering, laughing, and singing through the morning.
The assembly opened with a video showcasing our own Captain COURAGE and our CUB working out in preparation for the tests. The video was accompanied by the music from the movie "Rocky" using the tune of "Eye of the Tiger" by the group Survivor.
Mrs. Pentzer than sang words to the tune that she had written which encourage all of our students to show the COURAGE of the CUB when preparing for the testing. Two representatives from 3rd - 8th grade gave tips on preparing for and doing well on the PARCC and CMAS tests.
Third Grade students shared Tip # 6 for the test-taking CUBS...."Show What You Know!" Mrs. Mearsha from 4th Grade was proud to show-off the prize her classes won for having the Highest Daily Attendance in the Intermediate classrooms.
The COURAGE Assembly also featured awards for displaying COURAGE, Library Challenge, & Math Masters.
The Third Grade class introduced their Community Service Project for the month which is their collection of Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, and hand soap kits for the Guadelupe Shelter.
The Assembly closed with the whole school singing the "COURAGE of the CUB" song together, and then singing our school song.
