Stewart: Citizenship PDF Print E-mail

It’s hard to believe Stewart had their final CHARACTER ASSEMBLY of the year. Pictured, the Peer Helpers are holding photos of citizens from the community. Students & staff were given clues to guess which citizen was being described. We then celebrated being TRRFCC kids of character with a song & dance. Mr. Jones was kind enough to allow a "pie in the face" at the end. What a fun way to wrap up our year!

Stewart: Immigration Day PDF Print E-mail

Recently, 105 second graders boarded the S.S. Stewart to immigrate to America. Most students had very little money, so were forced to make the journey in the steerage part of the boat. They arrived at Ellis Island in New York. They spent time talking with various immigration officers, answering questions and hoping to stay in America (not be deported)! This activity followed a 4-6 week study of the immigration process. There were different “rooms” that students had to pass through in order to be allowed to stay in America: Baggage Room, Passport Room, Interview Room, Information Room & Medical Room. Students were asked various questions through every step of the process as though they were an immigrant 150 years ago. This activity is always a favorite and students learn a lot! Thank you to all the parents/ volunteers that helped on this day!

Stewart: National Reading Month PDF Print E-mail

In 1997, the National Education Association (NEA) kicked-off a day to celebrate reading throughout the United States. Today, we observe National Reading Month. This nationwide observance coincides with the birthday of Dr Seuss (Geisel), an American writer best known for writing children's books such as: Green Eggs and Ham, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, and The Cat in the Hat. Stewart Elementary has had a lot of fun in March with this celebration and the theme of Dr Seuss characters/ books. One of the activities is a guessing jar that is being passed from class to class. Each student has the opportunity to guess how many goldfish crackers are in the jar. The student who guesses the closest will earn the goldfish crackers as a snack for their class. Reading is fun at Stewart Elementary!
