During a Reading Street Question of the Week discussion, Alicia Dunlop's 4th grade students asked several questions about the warm weather we had been experiencing and the affect on the animals’ winter preparation behaviors. They decided to email Jack Hubley at WGAL. Mr. Hubley is the animal expert for the WGAL news team. Not only was the question answered, but it was shared on TV as part of the Wild Moments segment during the newscast. It was a great example of seeking answers in a variety of ways by asking an expert!
Mrs. Dreher's first grade WIN group recently finished their reports on arctic animals. The students created posters and reported their information to the class. Check out the pictures and links below to learn more about some of the animals they researched!

The Rotary Club of Hershey invited students from our 5th grade county chorus (under the direction of Michelle Kisner & Allison Ometz) and our 8th grade low brass ensemble to perform at their December meeting at the Hershey Lodge.
The 5th grade band, orchestra & chorus performed a winter concert for students, staff, and families. The band is directed by Jim Janderchick, the orchestra is directed by Tani Miller and the chorus is directed by Michelle Kisner & Allison Ometz. The students' dedication to rehearsals and practicing were evident as the students performed. Congratulations to the students and music staff for all of your hard work and we're looking forward to the spring concert!
