3rd Grade Pollination Experiment

The third grade has been learning about pollination. We created bees and flower models.

We learned that when a bee goes in to drink nectar it hits the pollen dusters. When it hits the pollen dusters it gets pollen all over it. To pollinate the flower you need to get pollen on the the stigma (the sticky part). Bees help us by going from one flower to another getting pollen all over themselves. Since, the nectar is behind the stigma, the bees get pollen on the stigma. This makes seed pods grow.

3rd had a great time with Madam Marguerite!

Students learned about colonial Louisiana from Madam Marguerite, a creole cafe owner at the time of the Louisiana Purchase. The students learned using artifacts, primary sources, and secondary sources.

Trunk or Treat

Thank you to all the teachers, parents, and community partners who made Trunk or Treat such a huge success! Our PBIS Leaders enjoyed their time going from car to car dressed as their favorite storybook characters!

How awesome is the 1st grade team?

The first grade teachers dressed up as, well, teachers for Character Dress Up Day!
