"Alone we can do little, together we can do much." This quote by Helen Keller is exactly how I felt as my tears fell when the teller at the bank gave the final tally of this year's Candy Gram donations. This was the largest amount we had ever collected. All I could think of was how much relief this would provide to one of our own families here at Mt. Loafer struggling with overwhelming life challenges. And to think, it was the culminating effect of one quarter at a time! Add to that, the countless hours of service our 5th graders happily gave in order to make this possible.
K12 Student Innovator of the Year is an innovation competition for students in grades 4 - 12. All you have to do to compete is invent a novel (but useful) product, system, or service, and come ready to pitch it to a panel of judges (think of this like a Shark Tank experience). There are 3 categories: elementary (grades 4 - 6), junior high (grades 7 - 9), and high school (grades 10 - 12). Over $6000 in cash prizes will be awarded.
Congratulations to the following students selected as February's Super Learners of the Month! These Students were chosen because of their excellent academic and citizenship performance in our ten Focused Learning Skill areas. We appreciate each of you demonstrating your super powers at Mt. Loafer.

The beloved 5th Grade tradition of sending candy grams is in full swing at Mt. Loafer! Students can show friendship to one another by sending them a candy gram with a chocolate kiss on it. Each candy gram cost $0.25. The proceeds are then given to a family in need in the area. Our wonderful 5th grade teachers and students pull of this tradition every year. Smiles have been brought to many faces and many families have been helped! Thank you 5th grade teachers and students!!!
