During the month of February, scholars and scholar leaders practiced kindness and celebrated the 100th Day of School by donating 281 nonperishable food items in one week. On behalf of PBS and University Elementary School, the items were donated to the
Community FoodBank of NJ in Hillside. The Hillside Community Food Bank is a resource used by many of our scholar leaders who visit this location to choose donated items that can be used by our scholars during instruction.
Kindergarten and 1st grade Positive Behavior Support winners were invited to a Super Hero party for displaying HAWKS expectations by being Helpful, Achievers, Worthy, Kind, and Scholars during the months of September, October, and November! Scholars donned super hero costumes, visited arts and crafts stations, collected treasures, received superhero tattoos, decorated superhero masks (because all superheroes need a mask) and ate snacks and pizza. Of course, they watched The Incredibles movies.
The grade level winners for the months of December, January and February will be rewarded with a skating party where they will participate in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities!
Scholars visited numerous math stations that included technology, red cup stacking, dirt cake measuring, tessellation, block building, and more. It was well attended by scholars, parents and scholar leaders.
Congratulations to the following National Elementary Honor Society members: 5th grade: Juliet Samla, Kathleen Munoz, and Sara-Lyna Fracois 4th grade: Kamau Cumberbatch, Darwyn Cungachi, Jayden Michel, and Zion Stewart.
A very special thank you to our rising 3rd grade scholars who were so “helpful” during the event. They are all doing an amazing job shadowing our new inductees.
Rising NEHS: Karel DeCoteau-Roland, Schwaznaika Exantis, Janae Harris, Cecilia Ifefuo, Aljaimira Kennedy, Isaiah Lucas Moss, and Nazir Nickerson
