New GRIT Contest

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:

High Fidelity a Bluegrass Band Comes to Estes

During an assembly today, Estes students were treated to a visit from the Bluegrass band, High Fidelity, from Nashville, Tennessee. Our students not only enjoyed listening to the live music but were also educated about the various instruments being played, and learned some history of how Bluegrass music began.   Thank you, High Fidelity for coming to visit us!

It Pays to Show GRIT at Estes

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!
