Covid Policy Update 3-31-2021
The decision to continue the current Covid practices, which include wearing a mask, was not taken lightly.  Thoughtful discussion took place before reaching our decision.  Things that were considered include the low positivity rate in our school thus far, the number of people that have yet to be vaccinated in the community, and the upcoming spring events such as Prom, Graduation ceremonies, Kindergarten round-up, field trips, peewee games, and Academic awards etc.  
 
We want our students to enjoy these activities without the fear of quarantine or possibly pivoting to virtual school due to an increase of positivity.  Last but not least, please keep in mind students are allowed to remove their mask while seated and socially distanced in classrooms.  
 
Thank you for your support and understanding. 

Student of the Week!

Jesslyn Mann

 
Jesslyn is an awesome student; but more than that, she is also a role model to others both above and below her grade.  She exemplifies what it means to be a well-rounded student.  She works hard both in and out of the classroom, and she has the very rare characteristic of empathy.  Jesslyn is curious, so she asks questions for understanding.  She has learned how to accept decisions that are often difficult to hear; she has learned to celebrate both big and small successes; and she has learned how to show others acceptance despite the many differences we all have.  I have never heard her speak of out place about another teacher or student, and she goes out of her way to make those around her feel included in all aspects of a class.  These are the qualities I look for in leadership, and I couldn't wait to be able to honor her with the Student of the Week award!

Bee the Change and Be Kind

Keeley Pool is a senior at Calico Rock High School that is determined to make a positive change in this world. Knowing how difficult the end of last year was as well as going into her senior year with so many restrictions, she wanted to help others get through this time by spreading a little positivity. She knows all too well that we all have bad days, but it always makes her feel better and have a more positive outlook on each day by brightening someone else's day. At the beginning of this school year, she decided to start Random Acts of Kindness and challenged others to pay it forward. She started the year off by putting small bags of candy and a Random Acts of Kindness note and challenge on every student's locker as well as every school employee's door. The love didn't stop there. She has extended this project to her job, church, ball teams, and most recently to the entire Calico Rock Elementary School. Keeley sent a letter out to all of the elementary students asking them to Bee the Change and Be Kind. The students were asked to bring in change for a week. The winning class would receive popcorn, a drink, and an extra recess provided by Keeley herself. The challenge was accepted and the students were buzzing about this competition all week long. Keeley explained to them that all of the money that was brought in would be donated to the Calico Rock Bridges program. By the end of the week, Keeley and the elementary students raised $1000.27! She went back to each class and thanked the students personally and wanted to encourage them to always have a giving heart and that each day there are opportunities for us to help others if we will just look for them.

Bridges is a local non-profit organization that serves the students and their families in the Calico Rock School District. The program is there to Bridge the Gap between need and education for those students in K-12. This could be by providing food, clothing, school supplies, help with bills, medical expenses, travel to doctors appointments, ect. Currently the program is sending home food backpacks to approximately 70 children a week and serving over 30 families in our school district. We also have an onsite room that has clothing and hygiene necessities readily available to the students.  We are so thankful for the generosity of individuals and community organizations that support this program. The program is ran solely on donation and grants that are applied for and volunteers that donate their time and services.

Student of the Week!

Johnathan Morehead- 10th grade

Johnathan was chosen for student of the week for his strong work ethic and his willingness to assist others. In my classroom, Johnathan is always prepared for class and ready to work. No matter what the task or equipment he is asked to work with, Johnathan always has a great attitude. Not only does Johnathan work hard, he also is a responsible, considerate young man.  I believe Johnathan exemplifies what it means to be a Calico Rock Pirate and is very deserving of the Student of the Week Award.
