Bus students who were recognized as Outstanding Bus Riders of the Month will have donuts and hot chocolate with their drivers next week. They were Matt Massey, Michael Reese, Brittany Mercier, Benjamin Ikerd and Shaeann Ingels. Thanks to all of these students who exhibit good citizenship skills around the school grounds and on the bus.
As the weather gets warmer, the school playground develops many soggy, wet areas attracting small children. Parents are encouraged to talk to their child's teacher about the possibility of sending a second set of clothes to school to keep on hand just in case it's needed. The nurse's office does not have enough clothes for everyone. Extra socks are a good idea even for older students who go outside for recess during the day.
Congratulations to Jeremy Sobocinski, the first-place winner of the Alaska Future Problem Solvers scenario writing contest. His story, "The Zoo of Emotion's" explored the possibility of artificially intelligent robots experiencing human emotion. Jeremy's scenario will be sent on to the international level competitions to be ranked among the best stories from the United States, Korea, Australia and New Zealand. This is fifth-grader Jeremy's first year at Sterling Elementary.
Don't forget there is a PTA meeting today at 4 p.m. in the library. The site-based council will meet at 4 p.m. March 17 in the conference room. Members of the general public are always welcome.
On Thursday, Mrs. Martin's kindergartners will go on their annual pet field trip. They will visit the Twin Cities Vet Clinic, animal shelter and pet store and stop at the Dairy Queen on the way back for a special treat.
