Field Trip!

The 5th graders had SUCH a fun day on Friday! We kicked off the morning with rollerskating and scooters at The Events Center, then traveled to Brookings to KcK Wildfire Gym & to see the movie Aladdin. I hope your child had a great day. They all seemed to enjoy the day, and were sure tired after all of the jumping and running around at KcK Wildfire! The movie was wonderful too! Thank you to Miss Thompson & Ryan Griffith for coming along with us. We also want to thank a very special anonymous donor that gave money to help cover the costs of the field trip for each student! Thank you again!

Math Bowling Review

We had some fun last week reviewing the math concepts we've worked so hard on this school year. Adding some bowling into the review sure made the review a little more exciting.

Roller Coasters!

We tested our Paper Roller Coasters last week. The kids were a little disappointed that their coasters didn't always work, but they worked so hard and did such a fabulous job on them! They're excited to present them to the younger kids on Tuesday!
