Kaegebein November Artist of the month - 5th grader, Elizabeth Frisbie
Elizabeth Frisbie was chosen as Kaegebein's artist of the month for November because of her actions and attitude in the art room. Not only does Elizabeth love creating art and always try her hardest, she is the first to ask how she can help. Elizabeth is always willing to clean up supplies and help friends who are falling behind or catch up absent students when they return. Art wouldn't be the same without Elizabeth!

Mrs. Cathy Chadwick's 4th grade class at Kaegebein Elementary School celebrated "Colonial Day" on Monday, November 19th. This day is based on a class novel the students read called "Felicity Learns a Lesson". The girls prepare the dinner meal. They make applesauce, butter and peel and mash potatoes. The boys learn lessons from hornbooks. The girls learn how to cross stitch and have a tea party. The boys learn about Colonial occupations and construct a sign to go with an occupation they are interested in. Both the boys and girls make soap, carve soap, write with a quill feather and ink and stencil. All the boys and girls enjoyed this authentic experience of colonial times.

In February, students at Kaegebein created Valentines for Vets in Mrs. Keri Schlageter's art class. They were mailed to our service Veterans to help brighten their Valentine's Day and let them know the students deeply appreciate their sacrifice and are thinking of them and all they have done for us.

Kaegebein Elementary School celebrates its annual "Parents As Reading Partners" program in March. Every year during "PARP week" members of the community are invited to come into the school and read to the students. On Thursday, March 29th, I (Jodi Robinson ) went to the second grade class of Mrs. Catherine Joynt and read three books to the students. The students took a vote on which book to read first, second and third. The order went "Chopsticks", "Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type" and "Olivia." I really enjoyed my time interacting with the kids. Ask your children about the books and which book they liked best.
