Building Excellence Successfully Together
Kindergarten has started to learn about The First Thanksgiving and the traditions that different families have to celebrate Thanksgiving. We have been reading books, writing about things we are thankful for and making Thanksgiving crafts. Our crafts will be displayed on the tables during the Thanksgiving feast at school. We are looking forward to sharing a Thanksgiving feast with our classmates and families very soon.
First Grade Explorers
First Grade had so much on our treasure hunt around the school! We have been working really hard on maps as well as our writing. We all worked together as a team to follow the map's directions and we found our treasure! This activity gave us a chance to work on creating and following a map written from another student.
Honoring all Veterans
Today we honor our US service members, and thank them for everything they have given or continue to give in service to our country. Thank you!
Congratulations to our October Positive Office Referral Recipients
