    Eisenhower Students Meet RSVP Pen Pals

    For the last three years, Eisenhower students in Ms. Derry Spotten-Martinez’s 4th grade class have exchanged pen pal letters with Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) members. This last May, for the first time, students and adults got to meet each other at an end-of-the-year “Gathering of Pals.” It was great fun—Ms. Spotten-Martinez set out board games which gave the Pen Pals time to talk and meet. Then they had cookies and punch.

    Pen Pal-ling has been a great way to inspire kids to write, and the volunteers really enjoy it, too. While this is a fine way for RSVP’s busy members to tutor/mentor a child, it is also an excellent way for less mobile members to continue to tutor/mentor from the comfort of their own homes.

    An article about the program appeared last spring in 50+ Lifestyles.  Click here to read it.Bev and Pals_72 Pen Pal Jayne_72 Pen Pal LuJuan_72 Pen Pal susie and gumbo_72

    Eisenhower Wins Battle of the Books

    Elementary and middle schools across the Davenport Community School District gathered at the Eastern Branch Library on Saturday, March 7, to compete in the grades 4-6 Battle of the Books Competition.  Each year the Iowa Association of School Librarians nominate around 17 book titles for the students to read, and then in March, vote to determine which book will win the Children’s Choice Award.  During the Battle of the Books each team had to answer one hundred questions based on the 17 nominated Children’s Choice Books.  Eisenhower Elementary finished first with McKinley Elementary finishing in second place.   The Eisenhower Elementary team will now represent the district at the regional competition on March 28.  The Eisenhower team: Corbin S., Brighton H., Carter S., and Isaac T.

    Health Reminders for Parents

    It’s important to remind children of habits that can help them stay healthy year round.

    1. Cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough.
    2. Wash your hands frequently using soap and water or hand sanitizer.
    3. Avoid sharing cups and eating utensils with others.
    4. Try to eat enough fruits and vegetables.
    5. Get enough rest. School children age 5-12 need 10 to 11 hours of sleep per night.  Adolescents need around 9 hours of sleep per night.*
