Last week, Discovery Gateway Children's Museum brought their Potential Energy program to the kindergarten students and taught them about force and motion. The students had fun learning about push and pull with a couple different hands-on experiments. By synergizing and working as a team, they were able to play tug-of-war, move a balloon without touching it, and make their hover crafts move in a perfect circle.
It's that time again!!
Every year at our PTA Carnival we have a basket auction, and every year it just gets bigger and better... with your help of course!
Did you get your little slip from your child letting you know what items their teacher is collecting for the Basket Auction?? We would love if you'd take a min or two to see what you have to offer! If you have something worth donating that is not under the class theme.. that's ok.. we'd still love it and will make great use if it.. Promise!!!
This last weekend, on April 20 and 21, members of our school’s National Junior Honor Society joined together to help with a BSA Eagle Project. The Eagle Project was for Caleb Pollock, a student at our school. The project began with clearing rocks from the school’s field. Shortly afterward, the volunteers helped to clear rocks off the retaining walls on the east side of the school. The next morning, the rocks were completely removed and the volunteers helped to spread mulch where the rocks had been. The area is now much safer without rocks falling from the walls, and it looks better too. The project was a great opportunity to help out a fellow member of our school and volunteer.
In Mr. Madsen’s and Mr. Whiting’s science classes, the students had a great learning experience. They headed outside to a timeline in the track field to observe and learn about the Earth. Students learned about the Earth over time, and they learned about the geologic and biologic points of it. There were multiple stations to learn about. For example, the Precambrian, Phanerozoic, Cenozoic, and Quaternary periods. Though some students were cold and miserable from freezing first period, they enjoyed it and said, “It was a good outside educational experience activity.” As for the teachers, it seemed like they enjoyed sitting in their comfortable camp chairs as the students worked.
