Elementary school: Remember to send in your Box Tops for Education

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 by The Press in School

Please continue to collect and send in your Box Tops for the next grade-level contest at Sheckler Elementary School. The Box Tops that are collected at the school by our students add up quickly and really make a difference.

It’s an easy way to show your support by helping earn a profit for Sheckler that will benefit our students throughout the year.

Together, we can all continue to keep turning trash into cash for our school just by sending in those Box Tops with your student.

Beautiful bricks: Art project adorns walkway at Sheckler

Wednesday, December 27, 2017 by MARK RECCEK in School

Sheckler Elementary School art teacher Daniel Kotran uses his classroom to ensure his students’ artistic and creative minds are put into action. Just recently, Kotran did just that. He provided each student a brick in which they painted an artistic design or message.

Kotran said Sheckler guidance counselor Kim Ceccatti selected a book this year titled “Only One You” by Linda Kranz. The book encourages children to believe in themselves, care about others and attempt to make the world a better place.
