Be A Champ

At Ed White Elementary, students are striving daily to “Be A Champ” in the classroom, out at recess, in the hallways, and outside of school! A Champ…

C- Chooses to be responsible
H – Helps and respects others
A – Actively engages in learning
M- Makes safe choices
P – Problem Solves

Staff members have been on the lookout for classes that are exemplifying “champion” behavior.

“Be A Champ” trophies were awarded to the following classes:

Gold – Miss Rolston, Kindergarten
Silver - Mr. Budde, 3rd Grade
Bronze - Mrs. Curry, Kindergarten

Polar Plunge

Lancer Nation we need you!!!

We need you to take the PLUNGE to help raise funds for Special Olympics. We have a great group of North Scott students/athletes who represent and participate each year in the various Special Olympics events and they could use some more support!!

Please consider joining me and others (Trooper Dan Loussaert) as we take the PLUNGE into West Lake on October 15 at noon. If you decide you aren't quite ready to PLUNGE into West Lake you can sign up as a "CHICKEN" which means you still raise some money, but don't have to jump in. If this isn't in your cards either, please feel free to simply donate. Any and all support is graciously welcomed!

When you've decided to take the PLUNGE or CHICKEN OUT, please click on the below link. It will lead you to a sign up form which you will need to sign up as a part of LANCER NATION. If we get just 10 people to each sign up and raise at least $75 we will get LANCER NATION put on the back of the POLAR PLUNGE shirts!! 

Please let me know if you have any questions! My goal for our group is to raise at least $750, but it would be amazing to show what a great community we belong to and raise more! 

Students are also welcome to join this team! Anyone can participate.  Anyone under 18 just needs to have a parent sign their waiver.
