Three puppies named Daphne, Franchesca, and Eloise were beyond excited to greet staff and students and spread some love and happiness around the building. Mintonye staff and students participated in a Student Council sponsored project to help raise money for Natalie’s Second Chance Dog Shelter. Every Monday for the month of February Mintonye participated in spirit days and contributed monetary donations towards the shelter. Total money raised came in at a whopping $700.

To celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday each year Ms.Overbay’s kindergarten class gets help from their big buddies in Mrs.Tilley’s third grade class to do their Thing 1 and Thing 2 projects during Read Across America week. Some of Mrs. Tilley's third graders remembered doing this project when they were in Kindergarten with Ms.Overbay! Each kindergarten student drew the body of thing 1 and 2 with help from their third-grade buddy. Next, the kindergarteners got their hand painted and stamped it as Thing 1 and Thing 2 hair. "The Cat in the Hat is my favorite Dr. Seuss book, " says Kindergartener Sophia. "I was Thing 2." After creating the Dr. Seuss craft, the kindergarteners and third graders got to spend time with each other and read a few books. If you happen to be in Mintoney, be sure to look at the projects outside of Ms. Overbay’s  and Mrs.Tilley's classrooms.

The second graders at Mintonye Elementary had a special visitor in this month to teach them about dental health.Thanks to Ms. Morgan from Tecumseh Dental for spending her morning teaching our second graders about the importance of taking care of their teeth. Second graders were taught how to brush and floss properly.
