Deck the Staff: We already decked our halls at the school. Our final day before Christmas break was "deck the staff" day. No one entered our building without having a little holiday decor added to their outfit for the day. Even the officers that attended the Grinch's Trial in Miss Ault's room were decked out with some garland. There was so much laughter in our building!!

Crafting and community service... Miss Strain's class learned how to sew hats/scarves that are being donated to some folks in need in our county. Dr. Allee visited each class to do a holiday craft with our students. Miss Black's class had fun with tie dye crafting.

We hope that each of you have enjoyed a wonderful Christmas holiday and a great start to 2022! We finished out the month of December making a lot of great memories at Roachdale Elementary. I want to share some of our highlights. December was a month of community service, crafting, Christmas songs, Book Blast, Santa Shop and a lot of fun dress up days.

This morning at approximately 7:40 it was reported over the radio by a school bus driver that there was a gun on the bus. Safety protocols were followed, no students or adults were in danger at any time, and all students were delivered to school safely. The student was a lower elementary student who told another student he had a gun in his backpack. That student followed training and reported immediately to the bus driver who controlled the situation. As it turns out, the gun was a broken airsoft gun. Kudos to the students on the bus who did as they were taught and especially to the bus driver who handled the situation calmly and safely.

We had a great group of volunteers and our own North Putnam Maintenance crew work together to install boards for our Story Walk around our walking track today. The boards will have laminated pages of books placed on them. Students and visitors to our walking track will be able to walk around and read a book. We look forward to laminating some of our own students' work and securing it for poetry walks and reading our own authentic stories. We will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony soon which will unveil the first book for our story walk.
