Please have them turn in their money on Thursday, before the event. The run will begin at 9:00 and go until 11:30 (See the schedule below.) Each grade level will be wearing a different colored t-shirt this Friday in celebration of our Fun Run. Please also ensure children wear tennis shoes to ensure safety. Parents are welcome to attend to watch the event at each grade level, but please remember this is during the school day so we will be unable to accommodate younger siblings on this day.

AWARDS ASSEMBLIES COMING IN DECEMBER

This year the awards systems at Nichols Elementary School will focus on both effort and academics. The first set of assemblies to recognize our students will be to celebrate students demonstrating excellence and growth in effort and citizenship. All awards reinforce the powerful concept of "Growth Mindset." We will recognize students for their strides in reaching their individual potential in each grading period. Effort is the only outcome a student can directly control and something parents and teachers can effectively influence. Awards will include the Principal's Personal Best, Good Effort, and Improving Effort. The second assembly will recognize those students in all grades who are performing at grade level in demonstrating the academic standards. These students will be earning 4's and 5's in ALL areas of the report card proficiencies. Below is the schedule for assemblies. If your child is receiving an award, you will be notified by his/her teacher, and we hope you will be able to join us in recognizing him/her.

Monday, December 15th             1st grade Effort Assembly                  8:30 a.m.

                                                     2nd grade Effort Assembly                9:30 a.m.
