New Way to Pay for School Meals

myschoolbucks logo circleWe are introducing a new way to pay for school meals with My School Bucks! The first step parents need to take is to register your child for a free account. You can then access your account balance, set up automatic payments, schedule email reminders, and download the free app for use with your smartphone! Parents can still access the “old” system to check your account balance and pay for meals.  However, we would like to encourage parents to start using My School Bucks to become familiar with the new system.

October Choose Kind Winners

At the start of the school year teachers in grades 3-5 read aloud the book, Wonder, by RJ Palacio. Teachers in grades K-2 read books such as Whoever You Are by Mem Fox and It’s Okay to Be Different by Todd Parr.   Quotes from the book Wonder are posted in the hallway as constant reminders of ways to “Choose Kind”.  Students are recognized for their acts of kindness with a Wonder bracelet and they are given a chance to be recognized in the monthly recognition.  At the end of the month an assembly is held and the Choose Kind students are recognized for their acts of kindness with a Wonder t-shirt.  A special thank you to the PTO for purchasing the bracelets and the t-shirts. Students are looking for ways to expand their acts of kindness to the community of Council Bluffs. Congratulations to the October Choose Kind winners-(back row) Chloe Alley, Katelyn Gwennap, Jaiden Larsen, (front row) Seth Thompson, and Faith Christensen.  Thank you for exhibiting such excellent acts of kindness for all of us to learn from.
