Student Council Trip
Student Council students took a field trip this week. But their field trip while fun, wasn't just about that. These students went to Feed My Starving Children this week and packed food for those who are struggling in Haiti. Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit group that provides nutritionally complete meals or starving, malnourished and hungry people. The prepackaged dry meals –costing less than a quarter each to make – are funded and assembled by donor volunteers in the United States. The students had a great time while supporting our global community.
Book Fair Record Sales = Staff Eating Blended Happy Meals
Ms Tate's face says it all!
The middle school book fair has a huge success again this year. We had sales in excess of $2950, which equals almost 550 books into the hands of our students. Plus Ms. Olson was able to give away over $400 worth of books to staff and students, in addition to having money left over to purchase items for the library. Thank you to everyone for supporting reading in our middle school.
Because we reached our goal, which was only $2200 in sales, several staff members volunteered to eat a McDonald's Happy Meal after being run through a blender. Staff had the choice of cheeseburger or chicken nuggets, but either way the blended meal didn't smell or taste like something that you should eat. Thank you to Mr Woodington, Ms Tate, Mr Holzer, Mr Ruskin, and Mr Nilseen for putting their strong stomachs to the test.

New Grading System for 4-K thru 5th Grade
St. Croix Central is excited to introduce a new grading system in the fall of 2014. Kindergarten through fifth grade students will be using standards-based grading in order to help students, teachers, and parents better understand the needs and strengths of each child in relation to the Common Core State Standards. The staff at SCC believes that standards-based grading will celebrate the strengths and support the challenges of all students.
For more information about grading in 5th grade, please visit the STANDARDS & REPORT CARDS page.
