In honor of President's Day, Sellers Elementary School students welcome a special guest to lead them in the all school pledge of allegiance. Principal, Steve Bishop, introduced President Lincoln, surprising all in attendance. President Lincoln spoke to the students about the flag and the students even wished him a happy birthday. Mr. President was even up on pop culture and paused to take a group selfie with some District Office staff. All in all it was a great start to the school day!

Sellers Extended Day Care Students participated in a walk-a-thon to donate money to the Glendora Community Conservancy. The students raised over one thousand dollars. A total of 31 trees were planted in the “Children’s Forest” on Colby Trail where the recent fire occurred. The California Conservation Core was on hand to assist the students. The largest tree was dedicated to Alison Giardinelli-Brunetta, daughter of GUSD employee Fran Giardinelli, who passed away from breast cancer in February.
The Preschool Tiny Tartans have been busy with fun spring activities. The annual Trike-a-Thon raising funds for St. Jude Research Hospital was huge success with all students participating. Parents enjoyed watching their students “do laps” with trikes, bikes, and scooters. The preschool students also colored eggs and baskets for the springtime egg hunt, which was enjoyed by all.
Sellers’ Kindergarten students prepare to embark on their first field trip to Tanaka Farms where they will learn where fruits and vegetables come from and how they grow.
