Early Learning Academy News

Recently our Early Learning Academy students have been learning about measurement. As a summary of the unit they took a field trip to the nearby Kight Home Center to see measuring tools in action. If you know an ELA student ask them what distance means. Most of them will be able to tell you that distance is “how far something goes.” A big thank you to our community helpers at the Owensboro Police Department. They helped our students walk across Highway 54 safely on their visit.

October - A Month of Giving

Estes Fourth Grade students are working on a Service Project this month. They are going to be gathering materials to put in a care package for those less fortunate. If you would like to donate, please have your child turn in their items to their homeroom teacher. The class that donates the most items will win a pizza party!

Here is a list of the items we will be collecting: deodorant, shampoo, bars of soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, Chapstick, washcloths, gloves, hats, coats, combs, and tissues (travel size).

Thank you!



The Anti-Bully Pledge Bookmark

The Anti-Bully Pledge
Last week Estes students had a special visitor during guidance time that taught them about bullying. The students learned what bullying is and what to do when it happens to them or someone around them. This week the entire school will take the NO Bully Pledge. Everyone will color a hand and then once all pledges have been made, a giant school wide sign will be made to show Estes is Bully FREE!

All Pro Dad Bookmark

All Pro Dad

All Pro Dad is a program for children and their fathers together. Tony Dungy, former NFL coach and official spokesperson for All Pro Dad, supports the mission and need for a program that focuses on dads. All Pro Dad was created to bring intentional focus to fathers around the world with support and encouragement from their program as well as meeting with other fathers in your community.

 Our intention at Estes is to bring fathers (or father figures) and their children together once a month at school to support the need for strong male role models in our students' lives. Our first meeting was held on September 8. There were 34 adult role models and 47 students that participated. Mark your calendars for the upcoming All Pro Dad meeting dates: October 20, November 10, December 8, January 12, February 9, March 9, April 13, and May 11.  Come and learn how to implement life-giving activities to inspire communication and better relationships for dads and their children. We look forward to seeing you!
