First graders have been have a "BLAST" learning about air! We know air is all around us and we demonstrated how air takes up space. Experimenting with compressed air was nothing less than amazing!

First graders in Mrs. King's class took advantage of the shade of the maple tree to stay cool as they shared Frog and Toad reader's theater scripts with their classmates.
Today Mrs. Sobczak's Kindergarten filled their Warm Fuzzy Jar for being kind to one another. As a reward, they got to eat snack outside and enjoy a few Elephant and Piggie stories!
Mrs. Kannenberg's Kindergarten Class having fun on the obstacle course earlier this week!
A peek into Mrs. Lehouillier's 5th grade class: We have taken on the role as ecologists in order to learn how plants and animals grow and thrive in an ecosystem. In the pictures, students are playing a game that is used as a model to show how plants use and make food molecules.
Mrs. Sobczak's Kindergarten Class has been busy thinking of all the Summer fun we want to have in just a few short weeks! First, we learned what a "Bucket List" is, as well as how to make a list of things we would like to do in summer. Then, we put our plan into action. Our Summer Bucket Lists are now hanging in the hallway. We hope others can read them to find out fun things they can do in summer too!
Mrs. Pecunia’s 1st graders have been enjoying their Plants and Animals science unit. They’ve been focusing on flowers. The class read Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert and then worked in cooperative groups to create their own rainbow gardens. First graders also watercolor painted flower drawings of their own. They learned about the parts of a plant (the stem in particular) as they turned white carnations into colored carnations—like magic! The kids each added a special carnation to their Mother’s Day gifts.
