Grade 5 Gives Back!

Our grade 5 students, with the help of their teachers, parents, and high school peers, are in the process of organizing a fundraiser to give back to the worthy cause they commited to at the beginning of the year.....Cradles to Crayons!

Our grade 5 students met with Chris Bravaro, a Cradles to Crayons representative, as he shared with us the vision and mission of the worthy organization located in Brighton.  Our grade 5 students will be visiting Cradles to Crayons in June, but before they do so, they are in the beginning stages of learning how to organize a drive to maximize best results.

In addition to Cradles to Crayons visiting Ambrose, several of Winchester's dedicated high school juniors and seniors, as part of the Connect and Commit organization, met with our grade 5 students and discussed how to fundraise, who to communicate with, and how to get the best results in order to donate to the worthy organization of Cradles to Crayons.  Grade 5 is busy, busy!

Only One You!

During and All-School Meeting this week, Ambrose grade four and five Student Council members reminded their Ambrose peers that there is Only One You!  While reading the book titled, Only One You, by Linda Kranz, Student Council members encouraged each other to be unique, be yourself, and stand out for being yourself.  In order to continue to promote, practice, and encourage B.A.R.K., the Student Council members have presented a social challenge that Ambrose has excitedly accepted!  With the help and support of our generous PTO, teachers, and each other, every Ambrose student will be creating, individualizing, and displaying rocks that are individual symbols of uniqueness and  making the world a better place, to name just a few goals.  We cannot wait to get started!

Thank You, WFEE!

Alternative furniture is a tool that provides students (and adults) with seating options to assist each in individual learning.  Throughout a variety of Ambrose classrooms, alternative furniture is available for students to use.  One of our Ambrose students recognized that having alternative furniture available in the classroom will support this student's learning style.  With the consistent support of WFEE, Winchester Foundation for Educational Excellence, this student pursued the student grant offered by WFEE.  As a result, viola!....alternative furniture was introduced to this classroom and the students quickly put it to great use.
