Activities to promote “Bucket Filling” based on the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today?, by Carol McCloud. The book, A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids, talks about building our own and each other’s self-esteem by adding to positive aspects of our character.
These nights allow families and students to visit our school and celebrate children’s’ work. It also lets them explore the curricular areas and gather our school community together to celebrate our children’s’ learning experiences!
Each year McAlister Intermediate School students perform in two musical concerts. Our Winter Concert showcases the choral talents of our third, fourth and fifth graders as well as the talents of our fifth grade band students. Our Spring Concert showcases our fourth graders’ choral talents and their newfound skill playing the recorder. During the Spring Concert, our fifth graders show us how much they have learned this year in both band and chorus.
