In the video below, you can see the second graders practice making sculptures with different feelings. They also learned how to use high, medium and low positions with their bodies.
We have also included some fun pictures from Kindergarten.
Sixth Grade's Harvest by Kadin Mikolyski
Farming plants are helpful for the environment. They give us air to breathe. They also give us fruit and vegetables to eat. Without farming, Earth would not be the same.
Social Gatherings by Nurse Connie
With the school year near the end, and as we make plans to celebrate milestones with friends – we need to proceed with awareness and caution. Planning and attending social events will require attention to detail in order to make these memorable experiences safe. Here are a few things to consider to help us gather safely:
Prevention: Remember, COVID mainly transmits through people’s mouth and nose when they are close to each other (less than 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) and especially when indoors with poor air flow.
Wellness Checks before Arrival:
Each guest performs a wellness check at home on the day of the event. Do not attend if you have any symptoms or you are supposed to stay home and quarantine: You may use the CDC screener below and ask guests to show a screen shot or print out when they arrive.
Sign In for Contact Tracing Purposes Upon Arrival:
Have guests sign in and provide their contact information upon arrival in case needed for contact tracing later.
Implement Universal Masking During Event:
Ask everyone attending to bring a well-fitting mask to wear
Mask breaks only when outside and distanced from others
Best Places to Gather:
Outdoors is best
If Indoors: Choose a large, well-ventilated room that allow people to distance
