Fields Day: Our 5th graders have been hard at work preparing fun mini games for our first annual Field Day!  They have been thinking about how the game must be simple, engaging, equipment needs, and able to be modified for different ages/skill levels.  We have also been talking about how to handle participant behaviors and being in a leadership role.  They are really owning this day!  One of their requirements is to design a webpage for their game.  Please click the link below to preview what types of super amazing fun games they have planned for you on MONDAY!  Bring your best attitude and a smile!  It's going to be the best day of the year :)

Due to the generosity of all of those who support vibrant and engaging music programing in District 89, the MBA has been able to save up enough money to purchase a new TUBA for the Band, a 3/4 CELLO and 1/4 BASS for Orchestra and 3 SOPRANO XYLOPHONES and 4 TUBANO DRUMS for the Elementary music programs! These significant additions to our music department would not be possible without you! Thank you for allowing us to invest your music dollars on behalf of all of our students!
