We are excited to announce that it is the time of year again for our students & staff to celebrate Kindness!
During the month of February we like to highlight ways to be kind. It is a time of year that we may be stuck indoors more, due to weatehr, and we want to be sure that we are continuing to live our Mission Statement: Becoming Worl Changers through Kindness & Leadership! So this year, we will be hosting our World Changers Kindness Tour. During the month of February students will be challenged to complete 25 kind acts throughout the building. As they complete an act they will fill out their kindness star & get their backstage pass signed from their teacher(s). Once they have ALL 25 dcompleted, theywill turn in the backstage pass to the counselors for a chance to win some really great prizes.
We will also be partnering up with McDonalds of Republic for the Share a Heart fundraiser. Sale starts Monday, Feb 5th & ends Friday, Feb 9th. Price students will also be partnering up with our middle school SPARK team. Students from Price will have the opportunity to write encouraging notes for SPARK student to add to to our district tiger totes.
Last but not least, all Price classrooms will have classroom kindness challenge. All classrooms will work to create a kind for the school, another class, or another grade level. Their job is to work. Be sure to check in with your student the entire month of February of how they are being kind!!
Thursday, March 22th, 2018 from 6:00-7:30pm Price students and families will test their problem solving skills at this interactive event. Each grade level will have a problem/objective in the classroom (K-2 as a class & 3-5 individually) and students/families will work through the activites throughout the night.

This flu season has been particularly rough. As a reminder, the flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. It can be spread from person-to-person through the air by coughing or sneezing or by touching an infected surface and carrying it to your nose or mouth. Check out the graphic below for symptoms.
If your child develops flu-like symptoms, keep them home from school until at least 24 hours after they no longer have fever without the use of medicine. We recommend consulting with a doctor and making sure your child gets plenty of rest and fluids.
