The school was treated with a great science lab through the Don Harrington Discovery Center. The students learned about mixtures and solutions while making Flubber and Garch. Ask your child all about it!

Ms. Bolz 3rd and 4th grade class were given a series of questions about the cost of different everyday items at the grocery store. The students worked in groups to search through newspaper circulars and find the answers necessary as well as solve some math equations about some of the cost per pounds.

Mrs. Wilson’s Second Graders are already busy reading and learning how to progress from one station to another in their Daily 5 Reading/Writing. This week we are learning how to “read to someone”. As you can see from the pictures, the students were paired up and reading to each other. This really helps them learn new words and improve their fluency. They look so busy!
