The international dinner night is when families make dishes from their culture, and bring them to school for a big dinner. Everyone who comes gets to try lot of delicious food from many different cultures. There were also many different activities during the dinner, like a band that played and crafts like making a Chinese lantern, sketch book, or a peacock. This year’s international dinner was on Friday, January 25. I hope that everyone had a good time and enjoyed the meal!

Roller Skate Night was on February 17th (and so were two birthdays from our school)! This event was located at 4500 Easton Ave, Bethlehem, PA 18020. From 6:00 to 8:00, there was roller skating. It didn’t matter if you were good at skating, because everyone had a chance to roll around the rink! From 8:20 to 8:30, there was a dance off. (For the dance off, you didn’t need skates.) We even played a game called Four Corners! Snacks and drinks were available for purchase at the snack stand. It was a great night!

Kevin McCloskey, an author and illustrator, visited our school for a great start to the new year! He taught us how he made his books, how he did research, and he shared some of the facts he learned. He also taught us about the animals he wrote about, like worms, fish, and flamingos. There was even a worm race! He told us that being a illustrator is hard work, and he needed another job to afford it, so Mr. McCloskey is also a professor at Kutztown University. He encouraged many students to follow their interests. Our school loved the presentation by Mr. McCloskey.
Drama Club Performance

On January 23rd, the 4th and 5th grade drama club put on their performance of How to Become a Pirate. The play was about a boy who was approached by a group of pirates. He joined them and became their digger for treasure. It was hilarious! We hope you enjoyed the show! Thanks to Mrs. Peters for creating and directing a great play and Mrs. Scomillio for all your guidance.
Leader In Me
Leading Edge Martial Arts
By: Zoe T. and Olivia R.
On Friday, February 8th, Leading Edge Martial Arts came to our school. During the karate assembly, we learned the word discipline and how important it is to stay focused. They also taught us to defend ourselves and people around us. We learned how to kick and punch the right way. Kids soon learned how to block their heads, so they did not get lightly bonked by the teachers with foam pads! We learned how to hit a person that is about to attack. We also learned what to do if we were ever about to be taken or kidnapped. We also talked about what a bully is and why some people become bullies. I think the Karate Assembly was a good idea because it helps kids become proactive!
Begin with the end in Mind
By: Ella S. and Addison G.
Hello, Asa Packer students and parents! Welcome to February. This month we will be showing to how to Begin With The End in Mind. For example, that means when you start a project, you begin with the idea of what you want it to be like in the end. Another example, if you are getting an allowance, and you want a bike, you can’t spend it all when you immediately get it. You have to save it. Then, your goal will be achieved and you will get your bike. Or if you are doing a school project, you cannot just rush through it on the last night. If you do that, it will not look good. It will look like what it is; A project that was not thought over, and rushed through. No one will enjoy it. That is not beginning with the end in mind. So, Asa Packer, Begin with the end in mind!
Asa Packer students helped raise over $600 for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia on our Pajama Day on December 8th, 2018. WOW!
