Red Ribbon Week at Covington Elementary School was packed with lots of "Just Say No" fun!
The boys and girls started out the week with Crazy Socks, (Sock it to Drugs) Smarties Day, (We’re too Smart to do drugs) Crazy Cool Hair Day (we’re too Cool to do Crazy Drugs) and our annual Just Say No Walk and Rally, which included all of the St. Tammany Parish and Covington Law Enforcement Agencies including Canine Units.  The walk and rally was also attended by Lyon Elementary’ s Just Say No Club, William Pitcher,  and Pine view’s sixth graders.  Each one of the schools had students perform Just Say No songs, cheers and the Pantherettes did a dance routine.  A student, Maddie Perez from Pineview read a winning essay on her “hero”, the person in her life that she looks up to. After each of the law enforcement agencies spoke and the students performed everyone got to visit  the equipment used by the agencies and speak to each of them. 

 

 

"Get in the Game with School Lunches"

School Lunch Week at Covington Elementary School was packed with some excitement. The theme for the week was “Get in the Game with School Lunches”. First,  the Covington High School “Big” lions, George Brister, Cordarra Laurant, Isaiah Carter, and Coach Glenn Salter visited the “Little” lions to help celebrate the importance of eating a healthy school lunch and getting lots of exercise.  The “Big” lions gave out fishing stickers and went to lunch and recess with the students. George, Cordarra, and Coach Salter were little lions at CES a long time ago which made the visit extra special. The students and teachers enjoyed talking to Coach Salter and his “Big” lions.  During the week, the students also enjoyed having Ms. Eason and Ms. Wolfe, the Assistant Principal and Principal, serve up their lunches. There was a special visit from Mr. Paws, the school mascot, and a special day when the faculty and staff got their “game on” and dressed as a favorite sport.

Annual Fall Festival

Covington Elementary recently celebrated the coming of fall with its annual fall festival. There were all sorts of fun fall activities for the students, parents and grandparents to participate in. The students were treated to a hayride, pumpkin “chunkin”, face painting, bobbing for apples, making butter and then getting to sample it with crackers and apple juice, shucking fresh corn and tasting it, and looking for a needle in a haystack. The students also had the chance to make a class scarecrow and place it somewhere on campus for all to see. There was bluegrass music being played under the oak trees and some dancing going on for everyone to enjoy. Parents and students could also interact with the farm animals that were on campus including some bunnies, ducks and goats. Art activities for the day included leaf rubbings, apple stamping, and quilting. The fire department was on hand with the fire truck and a fireman’s relay. It was a beautiful, fun filled experience for everyone that participated.

 

Grandparents Visit

Grandparents visited Covington Elementary School boys and girls to spend time together and play some Bingo. Everyone had a great time and things got a little competitive at times. The students and their grandparents not only shared some quality time together, but also refreshments and everyone had their pictures taken as a special memento of the occasion. Prizes included school spirit buttons, car magnets, school cook books and free snack stickers. 

 

Students Treated to Special Visit

Covington Elementary School students in pre-k through third grade were treated to a special visit, the first of many, from Northlake Christian School ninth graders.

Principal Wolfe Takes Ice Bucket Challenge

Covington Elementary School first grader, Thomas Bascle challenged Principal Susan Wolfe to an Ice Bucket Challenge with the money going to his favorite charity the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.  Ms. Wolfe accepted the challenge and made a challenge of her own to the students of CES.  The class that brought in the most  money for the Juvenile Diabetes foundation could participate in the fun of pouring ice water on her head as part of the challenge.  The school has several students in Kindergarten through third grade that battle Juvenile Diabetes on a daily basis.  Ms. Faciane’s third grade class arose to the challenge and had fun “getting” Ms. Wolfe.  Fun was had by everyone, including Ms. Wolfe, and the challenge raised more than $375.
