During its regular meeting on Wednesday, July 19, the Leavenworth Board of Education voted in favor of adding 10 minutes of instructional time to the school day at all grade levels. Beginning this year, classes at Leavenworth High School and Warren Middle School will begin at 7:50 a.m. and release at 3:00 p.m. Elementary students will begin at 8:10 a.m. and release at 3:20 p.m.
Several students at David Brewer got to try their hands at being a barber as they shaved the head of their assistant principal, Kevin Warner's. Mr. Warner agreed to let students shave his head if they lowered recovery room visits by 25% in the month of March. Students reached their goal, and Mr. Warner is now bald.
It was a fun Friday evening for students and families at David Brewer Elementary last week. The school's PTO put on its annual school carnival for a big crowd. The fun included a games, prizes, face painting, and a clown making balloon animals. The carnival is a fundraiser for PTO and included a silent auction with a number of great items donated by local businesses. Thanks to the generous bids of those in attendance, PTO raised lots of money to support students and staff at David Brewer.
