Our Kid's Heart Challenge/Jump Rope For Heart event last Friday was great! We're currently at $3,000.00 and that's very close to our goal of $5705.00.  The students REALLY want to meet this goal not only because we will exceed our past goal and help a lot of children with heart disease, but they will also be able to "SLIME MS.ROWAN"! 
And they REALLY want to do this!! All donations must be turned in by 2/12! Thank you for your support!

Last Friday we held our Annual Spelling Bee and had 20 students in grades 3rd-5th participate! After several rounds, the last 3 students standing were Jeremy, Lizann, and Darren. The winning word was astronautical (definition: the theory and practice of travel beyond Earth's atmosphere) and it was spelled correctly by 5th grader Jeremy in Miss Calicchio's class! Mr. Tamekuni's 4th grade class was represented by our 2nd place winner, Darren, and our 3rd place winner, Lizann (all pictured below) Congratulations to everyone who participated in the spelling bee! Congratulation on your hard work!! Special thank you to the teachers who make this possible, Miss Calicchio and Mrs. Gomez-Garcia!

Our Principal for the Day, Victoria (Tori) Ceja spent her day as our Principal last Thursday beginning with attending Coffee (Hot cocoa for her) with The Principals. Her next stop was in classrooms to acknowledge students with Paw Prints for making good choices. The rest of her day included lunch in the office, and a budget meeting with our Administrative Assistant Nicole. I enjoyed my day "off". Thank you to her family for supporting this auction item!
