Violet's Walk Puts the Fun in Fundraiser

Violet Elementary’s Fun Walk prompted 385 students to voluntarily jog around the school, with the purpose of raising funds and improving physical fitness.

“The goal for this year’s Fun Walk was to raise $20,000 for assemblies, field trips, one-school-one-book, class shirts, and a PTO donated stipend given to teachers for classroom supplies,” says Principal Grassi who has been a part of this event for over 10 years. With financial support, they hope to make this the only fundraiser during this school year.

In order to entice students to get donations, prizes depending on performance were given including a pizza party or Fire Department visit. Mrs. Collins’ and Mrs. Husek’s classes were the winners, but everyone who contributes is recognized for their hard work.

Thank you to everyone who solicited pledges and made donations to this cause.

Core Values with Sled Dog Adventures 

Musher Tasha Stielstra, from Nature’s Kennel, visited Violet Elementary yesterday afternoon to deliver a presentation on Sled Dog Adventures and the Iditarod Racing Team. Stielstra brought Enzo, the Alaskan Husky Sled Dog, with her to entertain this audience of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students.

Stielstra educated these upper elementary students on Sled Dogs including the famous dog named Balto. The main focus of the assembly was to highlight what it means to be a Violet All Star and how those same traits connect with the core values at Nature’s Kennel.

Located in Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula, Nature’s Kennel is home to over 150 Huskies. To learn more about Sled Dog Adventures, visit this website.

Conquering Fears at Tree Runner Adventure Park

Our 5th grade students at Violet Elementary are climbing through the trees at Tree Runner Adventure Park in West Bloomfield showing grit and meeting new mental and physical challenges. As part of the 5th grade planning team of teachers, Melissa Husek was impressed with the entire event commenting, “We wanted to learn more about who our students are as people outside of the classroom. We had a few students who were hesitant because of their fear of heights, but every single child got up in the trees. No one gave up. In fact, it was hard to get them out of the trees because they were having so much fun!”
