A Big Thank You! and a Little Correction!

posted Oct 18, 2014, 5:27 AM by Tracie S. or Shelley L.

We just want to take the time again to say thank you for all of your support for our third annual fundraising Move Event and our first ever Color Me Happy event!    We are still blown away by the number of volunteers, spectators, sponsors, donors...  who helped make this event possible!   The children moved for 105 minutes!  AND each time around the ball field is approximately 1/4 mile...  you do the math - some of our children walked/ran 3 and 4 miles!   Our Facebook page is full of wonderful photos of the event!

If you were like us, you woke up this morning still smiling at all the fun!  How many times do you really see 126 kids and 40 adult volunteers laughing and playing so freely?   It was heartwarming!    However, in all the noise and excitement, it was a bit hard to hear.   So...  when the newspaper interviewed a few of us...  they heard that we were raising money for a new playground.  That is not true.  All of the monies collected will be used to supplement enrichment and student activities planned by the Steenrod PTA - one of those activities is playground equipment.   We just wanted to make sure you didn't think anything changed from the original paperwork sent home.  

Enjoy this day together!   Thank you for your support!  We will do it again next year!

Jumpstart's Read for the Record! 10-21-2014

posted Oct 15, 2014, 1:57 PM by Tracie S. or Shelley L.

On October 21st, there is an exciting world record breaking program called Read for the Record.  This program began in 2006, and this is our 5th year to participate.  The purpose of the program is to raise funds and awareness for literacy needs.   This program is sponsored by Jumpstart in partnership with Pearson Education.  

The program is simple - Steenrod will pledge to read the book Bunny Cakes by Rosemary Wells to all of our students.  This is the same book that educators and parents alike will be reading to children all over!   Can we help break the record again?
