Sixth Graders Help Little Buddies with Letters to Santa

Sixth Graders Help Little Buddies with Letters to Santa

On Friday, December 12, sixth graders traveled from Warren Street to Pleasant Avenue to help kindergarten and pre-school buddies write letters to Santa. As everyone knows, when you are “making a list,” you need to be “checking it twice” – and having a buddy to help you with this is really quite nice!

In the morning, sixth graders from Mrs. Hartlieb’s, Mrs. Flander’s, and Mrs. Swartwout’s classes spent time buddying up with kindergartners from Ms. Salatel’s, Ms. Jones’ and Mrs. Roehl’s rooms, as well as Mrs. Hale’s and Ms. Papa’s AM pre-k students.

In the afternoon, sixth graders from Mr. McCullough’s and Mrs. Heroth’s classes buddied up with students from Mrs. Livingstone’s, Mrs. Quinn’s, Mrs. Toscano’s and Ms. Nellis’ classes, together with the PM pre-k students from Mrs. Hale’s and Ms. Papa’s rooms.

Once the letters were finished and ready for mailing to the North Pole, the buddies spent time together coloring or making holiday cards and crafts. To cap off the day, as the sixth graders prepared to head back to Warren Street, Ms. Jones’ students sang “We Wish you A Merry Christmas.”

Happy Holidays everyone!

Compassion and Generosity in Action

Compassion and Generosity in Action

Johnstown elementary students Hope Buboltz, Rylee Buboltz, Casey Lamori and Lindsay Lamori made crafts to sell at the JEPTA Vendor Fair on December 6, including Santa sleighs and trains out of candy; snowman Christmas ornaments with baby socks, fake snow, and markers; Rudolph baggies filled with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows; and “Olaf” make-your-own snowman kits.

After five hours at the Vendor Fair, the hard working students had earned $129 for their efforts – but not for themselves. They donated their earnings to a family whose house was recently lost in a fire. Compassion and generosity are traits that are always appreciated and encouraged in Johnstown!

Third Grade Community Service Project is “Paws-itively” Successful

Third Grade Community Service Project is “Paws-itively” Successful

Mrs. Preston’s third graders kicked off the season of giving a little early this year!

Their community service project began with the students doing research about the needs of the Regional Animal Shelter by visiting with guest speaker and shelter volunteer, Mrs. Haverly. Students then made posters and flyers to educate the rest of the school community about how they could help with the collection effort. Finally, students set up collection bins in the school and graphed donations through the month of November.

The project was a great success – students collected 79 items of pet food, treats, leashes, toys, and cleaning supplies. This great group of students learned a lot about being responsible citizens during this important project.
