Winter has definitely made an appearance this December! Even with the cold temperatures, Sauk Centre Elementary school has been filled with energy and learning. This time of year reminds me of the importance of choosing joy. December can be a stressful month for many students and adults…including me. J With busy schedules, presents to buy and wrap, evening activities, and holiday gatherings – stress loads can be at a maximum. This December, I am
reminding myself to slow down and choose joy, and I encourage you to do the same. Whether it’s 2nd graders reading me a story or a kindergartner filled with excitement over the new things he or she is learning…it reminds me of the joy I find in this job each and every day. I am blessed to work at a job I love…here’s to spreading more joy in 2017!
Each year at Sauk Centre Elementary the staff and students raise money to purchase gifts for local families in need. This year, Sauk Centre Elementary raised over 800 dollars! River of Life Church has generously offered to match that amount giving us a grand total of over 1600 dollars! The generosity from staff and students is heartwarming! Mrs. Beach, our school social worker, will be purchasing gifts for local families in need. Through this project we are able to help numerous families and add some cheer during this holiday season.
On December 8th, students at Sauk Centre Elementary performed Santa’s Rockin’ Christmas Eve. The auditorium was packed! I am continually amazed and grateful for the community support our students receive. We have many talented students at Sauk Centre Elementary and the show was outstanding! I would like to extend a special thank you to Mary Roggenbuck and Amanda Culver for their time and energy spent making sure this holiday program was successful.
