Ed Smith student Kaden Clark submitted the attached entry to the Mayor’s
recent Holiday Contest. Students were asked to share their favorite
holiday book or story and explain why it means so much to them – OR draw a
picture of their favorite scene.
Kaden got a call from the Mayor’s Office on Wednesday that he’d been
selected to join the Mayor backstage at the tree lighting. He got to flip
the switch to turn on the lights! Congratulations, Kaden!
We’ll forward SCSD’s coverage when it’s available. If there’s any other
related news we ought to share please let me know.
ATTENTION ALL ED SMITH 4-8 GRADE STUDENTS (SKIERS OR BOARDERS) WHO MIGHT BE THINKING ABOUT JOINING
Slots are filling up! So – talk about this great opportunity at home over the holiday week-end and then head down to Ms. Pratt’s office to pick up your forms/packet.
Or – if you already have the forms/packet, turn it in so you don’t miss out! Any questions –
also check with Ms. Pratt. We’re looking forward to a great season! That first snow was just a teaser! ❄🎿🏂
Syracuse Peace Council’s 47th Annual
Plowshares Craftsfair & Peace Festival
December 2-3; Sat 10-5, Sun 11-5
Nottingham High School, 3100 E Genesee St, Syr
$2-5 sliding scale. Under 16 and over 65 FREE
Please join us at Plowshares Craftsfair on December 2-3 at Nottingham High School (3100 E. Genesee St., Syracuse – map). Central New York’s premier multicultural craftsfair, Plowshares celebrates a world where people enjoy their work and have control over it. With 130 area craftspeople and community groups, it is a marketplace of ideas and beautifully diverse, hand made items.
More than a craftsfair, it is a peace festival, with music, food and a spirit of fellowship, creating a weekend of grassroots commerce and community. It’s a wonderful opportunity to connect at year’s end with old and new friends and share in the life of a village marketplace that has no corporate headquarters.
It takes a community to create a community craftsfair.
• Share Plowshares’ facebook page
• Download the beautiful flyers (8.5×11 flyer, four to a page handouts).
• Check out the Silent Auction and raffle items
• Delight in the food menu
• Enjoy a full slate of entertainment, including music and dance, throughout the day
• Check out the list of craftspeople and community groups (and where they’re located)

Thanks to all who brought Box Tops to school for our September and October
Box Tops races. *Remember — there is still time to bring in Box Tops for
our November race!!!*
I am happy to announce that *Mr. Schults’ class* won the Box Top race for
September 2017 and that *Ms. Wranesh’s class* won the Box Top race for
October 2017! Prizes will be awarded to those two classes. (for full
