Cushman Reads for the Record!
Cushman students joined Jumpstart’s Read for the Record®, the nation's largest shared reading experience on Thursday, October 27th. At 2:15 all students stopped what they were doing and listened to this year's campaign book, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach.  It is a classic tale of a bear’s epic journey and the mystery surrounding one delicious sandwich! 
            

 

 


Congratulations to Mrs. Fistori's class for being the first Cushman classroom to fill their crayon buckets!  Thanks to all the students for filling each other's buckets every day!!
  






     

Cushman's Bucket Filling Assembly!

Wednesday afternoon all Cushman students were introduced to the school's  Bucket Filling Theme for the year.  Students were taught that each of us has an invisible bucket.  You can fill someone's bucket by all the kind words or deeds you do to make that person feel special.  Students at the school can earn "Cushman Coins" for filling up someone's bucket.  They place these coins in their classroom's "Crayon Bucket".  When that bucket gets filled up, there is a special classroom celebration! Ask your child all about Bucket Filling!
