Drop Everything And Read!

Today from 9:30 to 10:00, the students, teachers, & staff at Conestoga Elementary School was very happy when Mrs. Baker announced to “drop everything and read”. The best part was that the students could read anywhere they wanted to read.  We had children everywhere – READING!!  This wouldn’t have been possible without the PTO buying a book for every single student at our school!  Thank you PTO!

Drop Everything and Read

Chef Bill & Garden Extravaganza Day

salad 8Chef Bill Scepansky has a passion for fruit and vegetables.  Conestoga’s own garden committee, teachers, and families have a passion for fruit and vegetables.  So it was a great day when the “passionate” teamed up at school and had a fun, healthy assembly, also known as the famous Garden Extravaganza Day, for our students and staff.  Not even the weather held this event off.  Our resilient staff & parents just moved everything indoors. Thank you to the PTO for funding this great day and to all the wonderful parent volunteers that made it possible.

This year, the students of Conestoga raised a whopping $652.00 and the charity chosen to receive the money is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  Thank you parents and students for making this event so successful.
