There are lots of great things going on at Caleb but the art program is something special! For this year’s live auction at our Spring Party we hope that you will once again raise your hands to support this amazing program. Online donations will open on April 23d.

It was such a wonderful exchange for all involved that we are planning to make the Culture Club a monthly event!

The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. This aim is developed by helping students cultivate a set of attributes called the IB Learner Profile.

This year’s jog-a-thon was a significant fundraiser for Caleb Greenwood Elementary that includes all students. This was a fun and fit activity for K-6th graders to show their support and raise funds for our classrooms. Our goal is to support literacy by providing books for each classroom, building classroom libraries rich with both fiction and non-fiction selections that will excite our students about reading. We hoped that each family would participate in the jog-a-thon to the best of their ability. If each student raises at least $25 we would achieve our goal. Students had a chance to earn prizes from our generous community donors while also supporting their school. Although the goal of this event was to raise funds for literacy, we put the jog-a-thon together for three very important reasons:
Promote the importance of physical fitness
Build school spirit and pride
Create a fun, memorable experience for our children
Caleb Greenwood students participated in the international community-art-poetry-connection project called Dream Flags in Spring of 2013.
