What did you do in school today?
The next time you ask your child about their school day, here are a few hints to help get the conversation started:
The preschoolers have been discussing the 5 senses. There are some humorous pictures in the hallway.
The kindergarteners planted seeds for the Tower Garden. They can’t wait to watch them grow into plants we can eat!
The 1st graders are presenting timelines about themselves. They even brought in pictures to share.
Grade 2 went batty last week!
The 3rd graders are creating stories about their own special robot. Maybe it will do their homework for them; maybe it will do their chores...
In 4th grade the students are reading the novel On the Banks of Plum Creek , and will walk to the museum next week to see some of the artifacts mentioned in the book.
The 5th graders are learning about the 4 Hemispheres and reading multi-tier timelines.
The 6th graders are beginning to write our 2017-18 school prayer. The possibilities are endless.
The 6th graders presented their prayer ideas to the preschoolers. Each group wrote a prayer to be voted on to be the new school prayer. It will be a close vote!
The 6th graders are collaborating to create the perfect "all-school" prayer for the 2017-18 year.
The kindergarteners, under the direction of Miss Stahler and Mrs. Smith, planted their lettuce and greens seeds for the new hydroponic Tower Garden. When the lettuce is ready, the whole school will be treated to a fresh green salad!

Grade 2 is going batty! The second graders have gone to the bats! They began the school year with a unit of study about bats. They found pictures and compared different bat species. They read stories and sang songs about bats. They even sculpted a bat out of salt dough. One activity included internet research with a partner. They were amazed to discover so many unique facts about bats! I was amazed at their computer skills!
Last Friday Ms. Wetherell invited me over to do a “bat game” with her class. It turned out to be a demonstration showing the importance of bats in our environment. The students graphed the number of bats and how many mosquitoes were left in 30 second increments. Even I joined in to help. It’s true: learning can be fun!
