The sixth graders spent one of their last days presenting at their Career Fair. The students got to share with their classmates what they wanted to be when they grow up, what they have to do to achieve their goal, and what responsibilities that career requires.
This afternoon the staff played the 6th grade in the annual kickball games. Grades Kinder-5th grade cheered both teams on as they watched on the sidelines. The Staff defeated the 6th graders!
Last night we celebrated the Kindergarten students. They had an amazing first year here at Link. We look forward to seeing them continue to grow in first grade next year!
The 6th graders had a great time at the 6th grade breakfast this morning. They were able to reminisce over their time at Link while watching a slideshow of old and new pictures.
We had an amazing day being principals! We wish we could be principals for the rest of our lives. We started the day by going on morning announcements and reminding everyone about having good hallway behavior, about our key of excellence “This Is It!” and that there is greatness in us! Next, we visited each classroom and took notes of how the students were doing. We sent an email to all of the teachers with our feedback for their classes. It was all very positive! During our walk around the building, we also got to peak into the special storage rooms that most students don’t get to see. After our work in the building, we went to see our district rocket launch for all of the students in rocketry club. It was an awesome day!
Kindergarten parents are invited to join us on Wednesday, May 24 at 6:00PM in the Link gym to celebrate the culmination of our kindergarten students’ first year at Link. The kindergarten teachers and students are excited to celebrate their accomplishments by gathering together and singing some songs. We hope you can join us!
It was great seeing so many families at Link last night for Multicultural Night. All the classrooms did such a great job showcasing their work. There were many different ways students showed their knowledge of their country; a few different student projects included books, posters, artwork and movie productions. Students and parents learned so much about other countries as they walked the halls and filled out their pamphlets. The Spanish Drama club also performed and did a wonderful job!
We hope to see you tonight for Link’s annual Multicultural Night! Join us at 5:45PM for a brief PTA meeting in the gym. Then starting at 6:00PM explore the hallways and classrooms of Link as they display information from around the globe. Learn about a wide variety of countries, experience traditional activities and see your child’s hard work on display. The event will conclude at 7:30PM.
Congratulations to our 1st and 2nd grade Battle of the Books team for winning the district competition last week! Ava, Sophia and Nethra were led by our kindergarten teacher, Ms. Bebensee, and did an amazing job at the district battle. We are so proud of them!
