Second Grade read "Mr. Tanen's Tie Trouble" this week. As part of our language arts curriculum we enjoyed a visit from our amazing Tech Coach, Mr. Hanosek, who taught us how to tie a tie. Students practiced "How To Writing." They also practiced oral language skills by interviewing a classmate in order to design a tie for them. They then wrote about their experience.​  We had alittle trouble but ultimately we tamed those ties!

Break Out!

The students in Ms. Camper’s 2nd grade class had a blast completing a breakout room. Students were placed into groups. Each group had to figure out tricky clues to unlock four locks on their box. The students also used their knowledge of two-digit addition and subtraction to solve the tricky clues. When they unlocked all their locks they found a book for the class and a treat. One student said “it was really challenging, but taught us to not give up.” Another student said “I learned that we learn from our mistakes. When we fixed a mistake it helped our brain learn to do it right.” Several students said “today was the best day ever!!!”

5th graders participated in our annual wax museum.  To prepare for the museum,  each student researches about the life of a historical figure. They gather and memorize facts and stories about a famous person and in essence become that person for a day.  Students are encouraged to come dressed as the person they represent and then present their character to other students and parents throughout the day.  Great Job 5th graders!

Uncle John and Jack

Uncle John is really cool. Uncle John is Mrs. Harward’s uncle and she invited him to come and tell us stories. They are stories about a jackrabbit named Jack.  He happens to be bigger than all other jackrabbits.  

 He told us how Jack had forced him and his friends to agree not to shoot them anymore; his trip to Jack’s burrow to meet him and his wife and all his children and having lots of trouble getting down through the hole; saving a kitty who had fallen into a mine shaft by using a rabbit ladder and catching some escaped convicts from a detention camp a little east of Pioche who were threatening three people at Delmue’s Ranch (also required using a hoard of his lieutenants).  

 We loved hearing his “Jack” stories. We loved the details.  We were amazed by the stories and we didn’t want him to quit. We were thankful he would use his spare time to tell us stories.  Thank you Uncle John.

Written by Mrs. Harward’s third grade students (and John, of course)

Parents are Powerful!

We wanted to let our parents know how much we appreciate you!  We have great parent involvement at our school. Did you know, parent involvement is the number one predictor for early literacy success?   At our grade level literacy nights,  we have had a high percentage of parents attend.  

Research shows that students with involved parents are more likely to:

  • Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
  • Be promoted, pass their classes, and earn credits
  • Attend school regularly
  • Have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school
  • Graduate and go on to postsecondary education

We also had many parents come to our parents and pastries activity this week and read a book with their students.  Thank you!  We think parents are powerful!

Students in our 4th grade classes have been learning about and using technology.  On parent night,  the parents of our 4th graders watched a video their students made describing topics they had learned in class.  They also were able to use a QR code reader on their smart device to listen and watch their student read a letter to a child they had written to in Uganda.  Mr. "H" our digital coach and the 4th grade teachers helped the students create the videos and QR codes.
