Thanks for Lifting Us Up! Wake Up... Surf's Up... Spice Things Up... Switch Up... Up Beat The Student Council planned fun activities to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week!  They included the students surprising their teachers with some extra encouragement in the form of a high five, hug, or knuckle bump, wearing Hawaiian or beach themed clothing, dressing up like a teacher, and singing a special song written by fifth grader, Omer.  Parents were also encouraged to write a note to show their appreciation.  The teachers were overjoyed with emotion reading these thoughtful notes.

The School 16 Science and Technology Fair and Art Expo was a huge success!  More than 80 students worked independently or in a small group to research, investigate, and prepare a science project to participate in this event!  Many classroom projects were also included.  All of the boys and girls learned a lot and had fun thinking and acting like scientists!  The Student Council also hosted a bake sale.  All of the proceeds went to purchasing items for our school store.  Thank you very much to the entire School 16 community for making this a memorable evening! ​ ​
