Calling For Tree Photos

We love to see our students enjoying reading and sharing our One Book One School book, Wishtree! This is a reminder that parents are invited to email a photo of your child (or group of children) with a favorite tree. Please email your photos to by Tuesday, November 6 if you’d like them to be included in the slideshow of photos to be shown at lunch.

One Book One School

Students in grades two and three have been working on design challenges related to Wishtree during LMC lessons. Mrs. Watanuki, the Advanced Learning Facilitator, co-taught the lessons. She and Mrs. Brown encouraged students to think like engineers to design trees that could support animal homes and to create protections for saplings. Students have been practicing their problem-solving!

Just Jump

Thank you to our PTA and everyone that donated for another successful Just Jump fundraiser. Our students had a blast. We appreciate all of the programming and resources this provides to our school community!
