Area schools competed in a day of learning in fun at this year’s MESA day competition. Several students from Leataata Floyd placed in their age levels in various activities. This event was the culminating experience for the weekly afterschool MESA club.
Kids created clouds to represent their dreams at the first lunchtime Kindness Station. Each week, we will have a Kindness Station where students will complete an activity or create a craft to keep us spreading kindness. Keep checking back on the website to see more!
Leataata Floyd 6th graders Nyquis Morgan, Jakiyah Cunningham, and Destiney Boyce were selected to attend a formal dinner in honor of the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The girls, who have shown tremendous leadership in their class, were treated to an evening; new outfits, facials, a limo ride and dinner. During the opening ceremony of the event, the girls participated by carrying posters and welcoming guests at their tables.
Special thanks to Ms. Ashley and House Church, and Ms. Rachael from City Year for providing our girls with this amazing experience.
The Leataata Floyd MESA team has done us proud! Ten of our students attended the 2015 Elementary MESA Math Competition at Isador Cohen Elementary School. Of 110 students from around the district in attendance at the competition, we had 4 students earn medals! Please congratulate the team and the MESA teachers for their hard work!
Have you met our City Year corp members? You can’t miss them in their bright yellow vests and jackets. You’ll see them at the crosswalks, at the gate welcoming our kids with songs, in the classrooms, in the cafeteria, on the playground and in the After-School Acadamy.
City Year Corp Members spend 11 months in service of our students and we can’t be more lucky for their help. To learn more about City Year, go to http://www.cityyear.org
