Recycling group

The recycling program at Claysburg-Kimmel requires hard work, critical thinking, and the ability to work independently.  Students that participated in the Recycling Team this year were outstanding students who are part of Elementary Student Council.  They are leaders in are school and demonstrate the strong character traits needed to perform this job successfully.  On the first and third Wednesdays of every month, they meet with Mr. Bilchak in the Multi-Purpose Room to receive their assignments.  They move in teams throughout the elementary school and collect recyclable materials and bring them to the containers located outside the Multi-Purpose Room.  They develop leadership skills and build positive relationships with both faculty and students.  Students model positive behaviors that spread to peers and create a welcoming environment for all people.

Bulldog Patrol
At the April 11th board meeting, Claysburg-Kimmel Elementary's Bulldog Patrol was recognized.  The ten members of the Bulldog Patrol monitor the hallways and common areas during morning transition and afternoon dismissal.  They keep the halls safe and make sure students are getting to the appropriate classrooms.  These students were placed on the Bulldog Patrol because they embody the strong, positive values that CKE emphasizes to our student body.  They are also well respected by their peers and admired by our younger students.  CKE is extremely proud of the Bulldog Patrol members.  All ten of them have done a marvelous job of keeping our students safe!

Author Visit

Carolyn Crimi

Claysburg-Kimmel Elementary hosted an author visit on Wednesday, April 4.  The visiting author was Cayolyn Crimi.  She lives outside of Detroit and has been an author of children's books for many years.  During her presentations, the students and Ms. Crimi went on a “Story Hunt” which was both fun and educational.  She talked about her writing process with a special emphasis on where she gets her ideas. She also discussed the many revisions she makes before she sends a manuscript to an editor.  She then ended the sessions with a reading from one of her books and held a question and answer period.  CKE worked in conjunction with the Hollidaysburg Area School District to make this author visit possible.  We are thankful for HASD's cooperation and we look forward to working with them on future author visits!
