Seasons of Gratitude
The IDES Green Team has a Walking Wednesday program, in which students, parents, and teachers meet to walk to school on the second Wednesday of the month. This is one aspect of our participation in the Safe Routes to School program. Our next Walking Wednesday will be on November 12th. We will meet in 2 locations- the old Dickson campus on Hill Street and the corner store on Montford & Cullowhee. We meet at 7:30, start walking at 7:40, and arrive at school at 7:50. Please join us!

What We Are Working On...
Writing- We are writing small-moment stories. Students are capturing the stories of their everyday lives and we are using mentor texts and mini lessons to improve upon them.
Reading- We are learning that characters face challenges just like we do. They have wants and continue to work for what they want, even when there are problems along the way. Learning story elements will help us retell the stories we read in meaningful ways.
