Congratulations to the art finalists in the PTSA Reflections Program! For several weeks, Seward Elementary south wing students have been hard at work creating pictures about the theme “My Imagination Flies When…” Students were challenged to incorporate the art element of texture into their art. The results were fantastic!
Six students were chosen to represent Seward Elementary School in the regional division: Ava Dickson, Donna Hinders, Talon Lemme, McKenna Meyers, Alexi Walker and Mary Withrow. Seven students received Honorable Mention for Seward Elementary School: Kyra Allen, Caden Armstrong, Abagail Doepken, Renee Elhard, Emily Mitchell, Leticia Quapaw, and Esme Wilder.
An extra congratulations to Donna Hinders, whose artwork will continue on to the state-wide division later this month. Talon Lemme, McKenna Meyers, and Mary Withrow were also recognized with regional Honorable Mentions. We are so proud of everyone’s efforts! Great job budding artists!!!!

February 29, 2016 is Rare Disease Day. Although Dup15q is a chromosomal anomaly, rather than a “rare disease,” The Dup15q Alliance is celebrating this day by asking supporters to show their support by wearing blue! Seward Elementary School Student Leadership Team has formed a committee to support this cause (to honor/support a classmate with Dup15q) and will be posting information asking all students and staff to wear blue on Monday, February 29th. For more information contact Ms. S., or

INTERESTING FACT: What kind of ship was the “Mayflower”? The ship that carried the Pilgrims to the New World in 1620 was a fairly small trading ship. She was about 90’ – that’s about the length of six taxicabs lined up in a row. Some passengers on the “Mayflower” slept in bunks along the sides of the ship, others made their beds on the floor of the covered deck. The upper part of the ship had many leaks so the pilgrims often felt ice-cold water splashing on them. Before she carried passengers, the “Mayflower” had carried wine, so the ship’s hold (where the cargo is kept) smelled quite sweet. Most ships of that time smelled of garbage and damp cargo.
