Hello Friends! :)
Only one quarter of school left! It's hard to believe it! What a WONDERFUL year it has been, and I'm looking forward to the fun and excitement that the end of school brings with it!
If I can help you out with anything at all, don't hesitate to call me at school or email me at [email protected]. We are going to make this a great year!
Please see the attachment below for ways you and your family can discuss and display perseverance this month!

LLS "Light the Night" Fundraiser to show our Word of the Month for December - Service

Thank you SO much for your contribution to our LLS "Light the Night" Fundraiser for our December word of the month, Service! I am so proud of all our students and families! 


Because of all of you and your efforts, we have raised $5,856!! We are the top fund-raising school in Rutherford County and I am so proud!


If you'd still like to contribute you are welcome to do so. We will keep the fundraiser open until May and I'll wait until spring to recognize and reward the top class with an ice cream or pizza party. :)

Who is Mrs. Puffer and what does she do at our school?
Below is a video I made (was also sent via email by your child's teacher) of me doing an introduction video about my role here at school, along with a sneak peek of my classroom! Feel free to check it out if you'd like! :)
The Energy Bus for Kids
We meet once a month for our Energy Bus program. It is based off the book, "The Energy Bus for Kids" by Jon Gordon. Below is a link to me reading the book (link is from last year).
I read this book in-person with all of our new students this year, but parents if you'd like to know a little bit more about what we talk about during "Energy Bus Time" feel free to watch as well. 
Kindergarten students will be watching this before our first energy bus time so they will also have this background knowledge by the time we take our first "bus ride" (plus they will understand that we aren't really getting on a bus! ;)
