Winning Poster Mateo Cruz wins 1st Place in Statewide Dental Contest
Mateo Cruz, a Solomon-Plains Elementary third grader, won 1st place in the Pennsylvania Dental Association Contest.  The contest took place during the National Children’s Dental Health Month.  Mateo’s artwork was chosen from more than 120 entries from third grade students across the entire state of Pennsylvania.  For his great effort, Mateo received a check for $500 and a custom framing of his poster.  In addition, his teacher, Mrs. Dlugosh, received $250 to use for her classroom.  Mr. Flynn accepted a $250 check awarded to Solomon-Plains Elementary.  A school assembly was held in Mateo’s honor during which Dr. Brian Miller, a local orthodontist, presented Mateo with his award.  Mateo will have a feature article in the next issue of the Pennsylvania Dental Journal.

1-2 homeroom Random Acts of Kindness Week in 1-2
Grade 1-2 just completed RAK Week! (Random Acts of Kindness)  The students each picked a classmate's name and had to surprise him or her at some time during the week with an act of kindness when they least expected it!

They also tried to spread the kindness at home and in school.  The class wrote down any nice thing they did on a piece of paper and linked the pieces to create a chain.  1-2 chain grew every day!!!
Kindness really is contagious!!
