Ambassador jobs have been going great at Larned Elementary School! We have been having monthly meeting and we also have been working hard on Christmas Tree Decorations for LES students!
With the help from librarians Mrs. Dryden and Mrs. Warrick, we have put together a wall of colorful snowflakes! All snowflakes are unique, especially on this wall, because each one is made with a different personalty and heart. Each of our snowflakes are unique, but look at what we can do when we stick together! The snowflake wall turned out beautifully!
We have had a lot of new students which means more tours for the ambassadors to give. Some ambassadors have requested a job change. We agreed that job changes will take place for the new year.
Ambassadors were awarded a Mini-Grant from FT. Larned Education Foundation! We are grateful and thankful for this award. We have a few ideas of how we will use this award.
On the agenda for January we will recognize National Law Enforcement day on January 9th. A few ambassadors have volunteered to make cookies for our local Law Enforcement agencies! We are looking forward to celebrating these wonderful people who keep our community safe!
In the past two weeks LES Ambassador Club has been very busy working on lots of projects that benefit our school and community.
Red Ribbon Week was full of fun as the Ambassadors tied spirit week into the same week. Ambassadors asked Pawnee County Sheriff Deputy Bryce and his partner Noa, the drug dog, to visit students at LES. It was fun to learn about Noa! Ambassadors also stayed busy with Red Ribbon week by making drug-free posters and hanging the posters in the halls.
Since November is here and Thanksgiving is right around the corner, the Ambassadors were busy putting up a "thankful wall." Students and staff are asked to write what they are thankful for and put their thankful note on the wall. It has been fun to read the thankful notes!
Last but not least, LES had a turkey hunt and it has been a huge success! The entire school was looking for their assigned hall turkey. All turkeys were found and prizes will be awarded to the winning classes. It was very entertaining hearing and seeing everyone hunt for their turkey.
Along with all of the above projects the ambassadors have been working on, the ambassadors continue to work at their jobs. They are busy with walking buddies, morning announcements, library aides, and we can't forget to mention the recycling workers. A huge thank you goes out to everyone at LES who recycles. I think we can all agree it is fun to see what a difference we are making when it comes to recycling. Keep up the good work LES!
Our Thankful Wall Time lapse. We just started! i know we will make our goal of filling up the board with thanks by thanksgiving!
As you can see, ambassadors were busy making posters for anti-bullying week which was held 10/8/2018-10/12/2018. Ambassadors hung the posters up in the hallways to remind students to continue to be kind to one another.
Ambassadors have been very busy this past nine weeks with showing appreciation to Information Technology staff and Custodial staff by making a big poster for each of them to display. Ambassadors also picked up a new job with the "walking buddy" program held every morning before school begins. Ambassadors helped with recognizing Teacher of the Month, Support Staff of the Month, and Student of the Month for the month of September.
Ambassadors have been meeting twice a month to organize their jobs and projects.
They continue to raise money for the coin drive for various projects they are doing.
Currently, ambassadors are preparing for Red Ribbon week which is October 22-26. They are also working on a "Thankful" project for the month of November.
More updates to come!
Ambassadors began their jobs the beginning of September. Morning greeters and morning camp helpers have been very busy welcoming students to school and making mornings better. Many students have started making a game of morning greeting times of trying to catch their high 5! The morning greeters tell students and staff, "good morning," at least 50 times every morning!
Bowtie day!!!! 8/28/2018
LES Ambassadors kicked off their year with celebrating Bow Tie day! It was a hit all over school. Mr. Jones helped us celebrate the day by teaching his students how to tie a bow tie. All students had the opportunity to color a bow tie and clip it onto their shirt. We hope to continue this tradition.
