Honoring Our Veterans

Our school honored 42 of our local veterans with a special assembly on Friday, November 9th.   Students in the primary grades decorated the gym with posters thanking our veterans for their service and sacrifice. Students in the intermediate grades wrote poems and letters which were distributed to veterans. In preparation for this assembly, our class learned why we celebrate Veterans Day. Thank you to all our brave U.S. Veterans!

Monsters, and Witches, and Ghouls…Oh My!

‘Tis the season for monsters!  The children worked with our “Big Buddies” to create a math monster.  By generating addition equations with dice, the buddies created a “recipe” for their math monster.  The equations dictated the number of eyes, ears, mouths, etc. their monster should have.  Then they had to use their combined imagination to draw their monster.  I was extremely impressed by the children’s creativity.

A great big Thank You to the parents who came to our class to help with our Halloween craft.  The children had a wonderful time making scarecrows and decorating pumpkins.
