The theme for the Open Circle Luncheon on Wednesday, October 26th was cooperation. The cafe was decorated with soccer paraphernalia as students discussed the skills it takes to work cooperatively with others and how soccer is a good example of teammates working together to achieve a common “goal.” Students pictured here were honored during the luncheon for their cooperation skills. Way to go!

Pirates LOVE to Read! Book Fair November 1st 5:00-7:00p.m.
Main Street School students have a special new place to read in the library. As part of our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair’s Pirate theme we asked the students what types of things they’d like to see in the library. Mrs. McQueen began bringing their ideas to life with a giant treasure map and treasure chests, parrots, and more. Now we are sailing along while we read. Join us for our Book Fair Family Night on Tuesday, November 1 from 5:00-7:00 in the gym.

First Open Circle Luncheon of the Year
Students at Main Street School were welcomed into the cafeteria on Wednesday, October 12th for our first “Open Circle Luncheon” this year. These luncheons are designed to reinforce skills that students are learning through the Open Circle curriculum in the areas of friendship, cooperation, problem solving, feelings, leadership, and celebrating differences. The theme for our first luncheon was friendship, and the students photographed below were recognized for their developing skills in this area. We also highlighted characters from two popular books, Henry and Mudge and Elephant and Piggie,. Students were “loaned” these books over the summer to kick off their reading. Congratulations to the students who were honored during today’s luncheon as well as the students who were recognized for their summer reading!
