Elementary Master Schedule
Figuring out which “special” an elementary school student is participating in during a school week is now just a matter of following the calendar and a short set of numbers.

Beginning this school year, Westside Community Schools has created a common master elementary schedule, which should make things simpler for parents/guardians and their children.  “Specials” (physical education, music, art, and foreign language) are on a four-day rotation.  Below is a pdf that lists numbers, which represent the four different “specials” that take place during the academic year for all elementary school.  Your child’s teacher will communicate which number (one through four) corresponds to the special activity for the day.

Also, for the parents/guardians of fifth and sixth grade band/strings students, the pdf also includes information on band/string cycle days.

ATTENTION: The attached pdf has been corrected to reflect the Feb. 2 and 4 inclement weather school cancellation days.

PADDOCK ROAD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Fractured Fairy Tales
Third graders spent time writing fractured fairy tales: using what they know about fractions to create a fun story!  Miss Pedroza's class shared their published work with first graders.  
Earl May
First graders went to Earl May to learn about annual and perennial plants.  They also had the chance to pick out some perennials to plant in our community garden.  Check out our facebook page for more photos.

Read-A-Thon

Feed Your Imagination and Your Community...READ!

The Read-A-Thon is approaching (January 2015) and this year thereʼs a NEW TWIST! For the 2015 Read-A-Thon the Paddock Road Community Club has created a partnership with the Food Bank for the Heartland. This year the students will READ to raise funds for Paddock Road Elementary, as well as their community. The goal of this partnership is to foster service, compassion, and character in our students. It is an opportunity for students to see beyond our school walls and into our community to help others. What better way to do that, than through READING! For every 1,000 minutes the student body reads, a case of food will be donated to the Food Bank. In addition, 10% of the Read-A-Thon profits will be donated to the Food Bank of the Heartland!

Help make a difference in our school AND our community; encourage your child to participate!

READ TO FEED!
