Kindergarten spent the week learning about community helpers. They had visitors from a local dentist, Dr. Joe Winward. He taught them that teeth need to be brushed twice a day for two minutes each time. Deputy Sheriff Janda taught students to call 911  when they have an emergency. They need to be able to tell them their name and address when they call. Firefighter Carl McClellan also visitied and taught students that if there's a fire, the first thing to do is to stay low and get out. We are grateful for all of our community helpers!

During Colonial Days, the 5th grade had the opportunity to create Horn Books in the classroom. Horn Books were used by Colonists to learn the alphabet and how to read. Each student got the chance to experience writing with a quill and ink--they practiced Colonial penmanship and used those skills to create their Horn Books. The highlight (pun intended) of Colonial Days was making candles with hot wax. The kids enjoyed seeing their creations completely set the next day. We all had a blast!
