Johnny the K visited Fuller Meadow this morning. He is always a favorite for students and teachers. Ask your child about Johnny and which hat was their favorite. Johnny the K spreads a positive message about respect, kindness, having a good attitude and just overall character development and citizenship. Thank you to Middleton PTO for bringing such quality programs to our students. Please support the Middleton PTO! Check out their Facebook page and website.
The students in 1K were in for an amazing treat today in celebration of #DotDay. Miss Klipfel planned and organized a Breakout Edu for her students. For more information on Breakout Edu, click here.
Breakout Edu is a great way for our students to practice creativity, problem-solving, critical-thinking, and hard work! It was definitely challenging for students, but so confirming for students once they started to open the locks. It is so fun to see how the students work together as a team and to see their personalities.
We started Team Time this week with students. Be sure to ask your student what team time is!
2-3 times a month, I will meet with each grade level and we discuss a different theme. September’s theme is Friendship. During team time, we talk about the theme, we read a book about the theme and then we discuss the book and how it applies to us as Fuller Meadow Family members. Team Time is a part of the week that I look forward to–it gives the children and me an opportunity to get to know one another. It’s a great way to start my day!
Today’s book, Making Friends is an Art by Julia Cook, is about a colored pencil who feels like he doesn’t fit in with the other colored pencils. Throughout the story, he learns about how to make new friends and fit in. The message that is weaved throughout the story is that you need to be a good friend in order to have good friends–an important message for people of all ages!
Ask your student what we talked about at Team Time this week!
Just a reminder that parents and guardians are invited to join us for our Open Houses which are coming up tonight and on Tuesday. Looking forward to seeing you!

Our students are working hard! They are creating rules with their classes and teachers, learning about expectations and the routines. They are learning how to use new tools in their classrooms like Fundations magnetic boards and Chromebooks. They are getting to know their classmates and their teachers. We’ve had a smooth start so far!
