ESTES HAS TALENT!!
Talent Show on Thursday, May 18th, at 1:15 p.m.
Estes Elementary presents the 2017 Talent Show on Thursday, May 18th, at 1:15 p.m.! Come and see the amazing talents of our Estes students!
Students at Estes learn early that GRIT means showing passion and perseverance and never giving up even when something is hard. Before Christmas break, Estes students learned that showing GRIT really pays off. Students that had earned GRIT tickets this past nine weeks were entered into two contests where their names were randomly selected to be winners. The first student names selected, enjoyed coke and popcorn while watching the movie Moanna at the Malco movie theater. The second students names selected won new bicycles and helmets donated by our local Academy Sports + Outdoors store. Be sure to stop by our photo gallery to see our happy GRIT winners!
Estes students continue showing passion and perseverance to
earn GRIT tickets. Every time a student earns a GRIT ticket they are entered
into a contest where names are randomly drawn from each classroom. This means
the more GRIT tickets they receive the better their chances are for winning!
This time the winners will be rewarded with an ice skating trip to Edge Ice
Center in February. Take a look at this student created video about GRIT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWMnPEV9GcY
Recently, two of our school photographers, Ja'Niya and Aubrey, were asked to work on a special project. They interviewed students and staff members to see what they liked about Estes and a video was created that was shown at the Owensboro Public Schools Board luncheon last week. This video shows what makes Estes such a special place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUEtn4ES-5g
On Valentine's Day, the winning students of the latest GRIT contest were taken on a trip to the Edge Ice Arena where students had the chance to ice skate as well as enjoy a snack. Once again our students learned that showing patience and perseverance has great rewards. Even the youngest Estes student will tell you that when things get hard you cannot quit---you keep going and show GRIT! Be sure to check out our photo gallery for more photos.
On Friday, January 20, 2017 an awards assembly was held to recognize some outstanding Estes students. Students received awards for Perfect Attendance, A/B Honor Roll, All A Honor Roll, and for being a Totally Awesome Student. In addition to the award, these students had previously been treated to a special activity for their accomplishments. Please check out our Photo Gallery to see photos from the assembly. Our school photographers, Aubrey, Ja'Niya, and Sabrina, created a video that was shown at the assembly. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeEf-NUtBDs
