Susie stopped by Collegeville Elementary School to see the KidPrint ID process in action. We were so impressed! Dwight McInturff with the Saline County Sheriff's Office, SSO Pete Dixon and PTO volunteers took photos and fingerprints of student and they each received an ID card. These cards are so important for parents and family. Not only are they wonderful keepsakes, but they're also a valuable resource in an emergency. We're so proud to sponsor the cards and equipment each year to keep our kids safe!

Kindergarten is learning to identify the purpose of Thanksgiving and to describe the groups of people who celebrated the first Thanksgiving and the events that were celebrated. We learned how the brave Pilgrims traveled far to a new world and how helpful Native Americans helped them learn new skills to survive. We compared a child’s present life and responsibilities to the lives of Native American and Pilgrim children. Then students had to use information from text to decide if they would rather be a Pilgrim or a Native American and give a reason why. Mrs. Chism’s students are ready to celebrate the first Thanksgiving at our Thanksgiving Feast tomorrow! 🍽 #thankful
CES loves celebrating students who demonstrate the #WildcatWay! From being kind, putting forth best effort, showing respect to teachers and peers, or perseverance, these are the behaviors we encourage and promote! These are the behaviors that make Collegeville a great place, and the reasons we can learn and get and education.
We loved honoring our CES November Staff Spotlight, Mrs. Sheila Hutchins! Mrs Hutchins always has a smile and a helping hand to cover an extra duty, create signs and banners for special events, and use her creative ideas to make our building beautiful! Her peers were delighted to get to nominate her, and we are so lucky to have her!

This week Kindergarten has studied two famous inventors and timelines of their lives and their inventions. We’ve used chronological terms to sequence these events including first, next, before, after, past, now, and long ago. Students were challenged to develop a personal timeline to sequence 5 events in their own lives. Students presented their timelines this morning to their class and were encouraged to speak audibly when describing familiar people, places, and events. It is so fun to continue learning more about our friends! #LearnLoveGrowTogether
Kate’s dad, Mr. Adam Triche, is back for a second time! Thank you for being our Watch D.O.G.S. today!
We love this idea!!!! ❤️💚🎅🏻🤶🏻💚❤️
LOVE this idea....Saving this!
Science meets Kindergarten!
In kindergarten, learners got to explore ways to change speed and direction of a rolling object by participating in a Roller Coaster Challenge! Afterwards, they got to design their own roller coasters based on what they learned from the roller coaster models that we built together as a class.

Looks like fun!
Hey everyone! Exciting news- you can begin signing up for the Elf Run 5k. Click the link here to sign up! https://runsignup.com/Race/AR/Bryant/RunningoftheElves5K1M
This afternoon in Kindergarten we became inventors and explored ways to change the speed and direction of an object by building roller coasters out of pipe insulation. 🎢🎢🎢👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
This afternoon, Miss Bowman’s class completed roller coaster challenges with a marble and pipe insulation, while learning about forces of motion! The hardest challenge was adding a loop to our “roller coaster” and we finally got it! 🎢
We are making an Affirmation Avalanche at CES! Mrs. Edwards and Mrs. McBride have encouraged our staff and our students to practice giving affirmations in our building! Mrs. Magsby’s class took a few minutes to allow students to give affirmations to their classmates. Mrs. Gilchrist had positive affirmations already written for each student on his or her desk when they arrived to school this morning! And teachers are sharing affirmations with other teachers.
All because we know that we want CES to be a safe and happy place to learn!
Have you affirmed someone today?
Caroline was a guest reader today for Mrs. Watson’s kindergarten class. Didn’t she do a fabulous job? She cashed in her DoJo award points to earn this privilege! #WildcatWay
Mrs Watson’s class had a very special guest reader this morning! Caroline is a second grader now and she cashed in 30 of her hard earned points to come read to our class. What a treat for us!! It is always so special when a student come back to their Kindergarten class!! 📚❤️
Yikes! Our Lost & Found is out of control! Parents, do you recognize any of these items? The easiest way to solve this problem is to please PUT YOUR CHILD’S NAME ON ALL THEIR PERSONAL BELONGINGS. Then, we can take it directly to him or her instead of having to put it in Lost & Found. We need your help!
We donate any unclaimed items at the end of the semester.

Welcome to the Collegeville OR! Our 3rd graders became surgeons today. They had to save their patient by finding 5 text features and transplant them Into their patient. Once the transplant was successful they had to write their “surgical report” telling purpose of their text feature and how it helped them understand the text. Glad to report all patients survived! #roomtransformation #learningtogether #cesmissioninaction
Calling all surgeons! Today 3rd graders extended their learning with text features by identifying text features, told the purpose, and stated how it helped them learn! They worked hard at saving lives and had FUN!!! We are happy to report that all patients survived! 🤪😍🙌🏼🎉 #roomtransformationsareFUN #happykids #learnandgrowtogether
