​Warm Fuzzy or Cold Prickly

ABC Afternoon is focusing on caring as a quality character trait for January and February.  Showing someone you care is a good way to fill their virtual buckets.  Warm fuzzies are all the good feelings that we bring to someone’s day.  Helping a friend out when in need and doing a random act of kindness are both ways to fill a bucket with warm fuzzies. Cold pricklies are what happen when someone dips from your bucket or does something unkind.  This is also known as bucket dipping.  The K-2 students were challenged with an “at home project.”  The task was to create a warm fuzzy or cold prickly with their families and bring it to school to display.  The assignment was created to open a dialog between students and families and to bring awareness of how we treat others.  Penelope Clauson (pictured) and parents created their bucket duo over the weekend.

Our ABC Program welcomes families to attend our program on day 6 at 11:45 in the OESJ Elementary Gym.  Stay up to date by following us at OESJ ABC Afternoon on Facebook.

​Fourth & Fifth Graders Give Instead of Receive During the Holidays

OESJ Elementary Fourth and Fifth Grade Students opted out of the usual gift exchange this past holiday season. Instead, they focused their efforts into donating to the local food pantry.  This change was received with overwhelming support from families .  Fourth and fifth graders collected multiple boxes of food that will help supply the shelves at the Helping Hands Food Pantry located in the DHR Building.  Helping Hands is open on the third Wednesday and the fourth Thursday from 3:30 - 6:00 PM.
