We had a great week of fun activities to end 2017. Enjoy our slideshow of activities from the week. We are looking forward to 2018! Enjoy your break!
The library staff selected and pulled over 150 of our library books covering a variety of genres. The library volunteer “elves” then gift wrapped all of the books and attached a brief summary. Fifth grade students had the option of perusing the wrapped books, reading the summaries, and selecting a book to check out. The mystique was quite appealing, and the students were excited by their choices and anxious to read a book they might not otherwise have selected for themselves.
Third graders collaborated to build and and test a foundation they designed using a limited number of gumdrops and toothpicks while sticking to a height requirement. Their foundation had to hold the weight of a text book for 10 seconds or longer to succeed at this challenge. This is an “unplugged coding” lesson from www.code.org to work on building perseverance, growth mindset, teamwork, collaboration.
Mrs. Stahl's math students participated in a cake walk. The students walked around the room with music playing. When the music stopped the person by the cupcake with the money amount called, earned a point. It was a fun way to practice counting money!
Students in Mrs. Kleinfelter’s and Miss Coleman’s fifth grade classes sent a special care package to some heroic Airmen who are stationed overseas. These members of the Air Force will be unable to come home for the holidays this year. The students wanted to spread some cheer as a thank you to our U.S. Service Members. So, with the help of the District Office staff and caring, dedicated parents, the students collected and shipped five boxes of personal care items and treats!
