April 14, 2014
I wanted to share with you the decision process that was used regarding not cancelling school on April 14th. Monday morning, we lost power at Edgemont, Owen and Savage Schools. Power was restored at all three buildings by 7:00 am. At approximately 7:30 am, I was notified that power had again gone out at all three buildings. Cancelling school at that point would have left a number of students standing at a bus stop, walking on roads, or left at home unattended, as many parents assumed school was proceeding as normal and had left their homes for work, etc.

New Instruments For Music
A big THANK YOU to all who contributed to our music fundraiser or donated new instruments to the music classroom! We have received 4 steel drums, 1 drum, 4 sets of boom sticks, and 5 Orff instruments (xylophone styled instruments). We still have funds available and we are looking to purchase more wonderful things for the classroom!
Student Council Rocks!
Student Council sponsored a pet supply drive for needy animals in local rescues. Mrs. Hickson agreed to chop off an entire foot-length of her long locks if the kids collected 10,000 points worth of pet supplies. Each item was assigned a point value. We far surpassed our goal so Mrs. Hickson got a hair cut at the town hall meeting on Wednesday, March 5th.
Students at Savage Elementary are participating in a mini-Olympic Games this week. The games kicked off with an opening ceremony which included a parade of flags. The games take place throughout the week and encourage the players to use measurement and estimation skills. So far, their favorites are the "Left Handed Sponge Squeeze" and the "Cotton Ball Shot Put." Best of all, the students are connecting academic learning to a real-world, global event. Citius, Altius, Fortius!
