The Elementary Library now has Scholastic News. This informational and engaging magazine keeps kids current while making learning fun! 4th and 5th grade students can now enjoy reading and discussing the latest issues during their book selection times.
Mrs. McCarthy's third grade students were challenged to build a new house for the 3 Little Pigs (they were tired of their old home). They had to design and engineer the home so it would withstand the Big Bad Wolf (which in our classroom was a powerful fan). The students worked for the month designing and redesigning their homes and came up with some really interesting creations. At the end of the month we brought in the Big Bad Wolf to test and see how sturdy the structures were. They had a great time and made some amazing creations.
Mrs. Dunlop's 4th grade class celebrated their Trojan Reward with an 80's theme. The class earned this reward by showing expected behaviors across multiple settings. Way to go RM. 49!
As the end of the year is wrapping up, 2nd grade students are still hard at work learning and having fun! Students in Mrs. Miller's 2nd grade WIN class went on a scavenger hunt as a closure activity for a book they read together. They had to use information from the book, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" to complete a scavenger hunt and unlock a box that had their 'Golden Tickets'. They then used their ticket for entrance to see the movie.
Peep, peep, peep can be heard coming from the third-grade classrooms! Chicks have hatched! Third graders are finishing up their embryology unit this week! They have learned about the life cycle of a chicken, care of chickens, and about how producers and commodities are important to agriculture. This was an EGG-cellent EGG-perience!
Congratulations to our 4th grade students who were awarded the Dauphin County Medical Society Alliance Science Awards. We are so proud of you all!
Congratulations to our elementary teachers, Mrs. Stahl, Mrs. Cin, Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Brandt, Mrs. Paukovitch, Mrs. Hoke, and Mrs. Kulina, in being awarded a Tanger Grant. These ladies worked to write grant proposals to support educational initiatives in their classrooms. They were awarded funds to support ideas such as flexible seating, robotic coding, reading, and an elementary discovery and collaboration zone. Thank you to these teachers for taking the time to write these grants that support our students and learning!
Fourth graders and Kindergarteners teamed up to make costumes for the ECC Reading Incentive Parade. The students enjoyed working together to create an octopus body and hat. The students, big and small, enjoyed working together in our school’s community!
