    International Dot Day Student Projects

We have dots in many things we use today, in language, math, science and also in technology.(Exclamation points, decimals, web addresses.)

International Dot Day was celebrated by SRES September 15 and the event was named after a book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds. The Dot, which has become a worldwide phenomenon, is about encouraging children to create something that could ‘make their mark’ in the world. That’s exactly what we want to do to celebrate International Dot Day at Salt River Elementary. It fits perfectly with many strands we have begun in school: Helping children believe in themselves, encouraging them to be better writers and creating their own content, leaving a mark as good citizens!

Mr. Fernando and Mrs Yurek are encouraging every class to let students take a dot (a circle) and do something creative.

Character Counts

Our September theme for Character Counts is Trustworthiness.

What does trustworthiness mean? It means such things as the following: Build trust and credibility with integrity (consistency between beliefs, words and actions); honesty (truthfulness, sincerity and candor); promise-keeping, and loyalty (fidelity to family, friends, and country). Please help reinforce the importance of trustworthiness with your child.
