TURKEY TROT
As the fall season quickly approaches, the Elementary P.E. Staff at Hudsonville is busy planning our annual Turkey Trot running race for the students of Hudsonville Public Schools. This year's Turkey Trot will be on October 23, 2018. We are so proud to have local and family-run businesses in our area support the race! Last year we had nearly 1000 participants register and we are hoping to exceed that number this year! Sponsorship is $150, and that will get you a business card sized advertisement on the back of the shirts.  The name of your business will also be announced over the sound system throughout the evening.  Many sponsors also donate coupons or flyers to distribute to the more than 1000 participants. It is a great way to get your business some recognition and help provide an awesome community event that promotes health and fitness!

If you are interested in sponsoring or would like more information, please don't hesitate to contact me! I can be reached at ajohnson@hpseagles.net or by calling the school.  Watch for details on registration for the Turkey Trot soon.  Thank you!


HABIT CARDS
Together we learn. Together we lead.”  That is our motto at Bauer Elementary School.  We recognize and encourage students to use the Seven Habits of Happy Kids outlined in Sean Covey’s book.  Our faculty is always on the look out for students that exemplify being proactive, thinking win-win, beginning with the end in mind, putting first things first, seeking first to understand prior to being understood, working in synergy with others and balancing the responsibilities in their lives.
We recognize students with our words and also by giving out “Habit Cards” to individual students and classes.  Each Monday, our teachers will draw out one card for each grade level.  The students who have a card randomly drawn will be able to lead the school in the Pledge every morning for a week and a group picture will be displayed in our cabinet by the office.  We will also celebrate as a group on a monthly basis.
It is our hope that your child shares with you when he or she receives a card and what it was for.  We have amazingly kind and caring students at Bauer!  We thank you for encouraging your child to continue with great behavior and the habits of happy kids!

5th Graders Scientific Investigation

This week, Bauer fifth grade students set out to do a scientific investigation that has puzzled millions of people for years. Which type of bubble gum is actually the best for blowing bubbles? Students became scientists when focusing on dependent, independent, and control variables to support the integrity of the investigation. Unfortunately, the debate lives on, but its certainly not due to lack of discussion and data interpretation! We were left with more questions and ideas for further investigations.
