Kindergarten had the opportunity to learn about Martin Luther King and his belief in kindness, love, and peace. Students were engaged in a “peace plate” art project with watercolor paint and paper plates.

First Grade

This week, first graders began learning about 2-D shapes. Shapes are an exciting unit because we can explore is so many ways. We learned the new vocabulary word, vertices. Vertices in shapes are the points where two or more lines meet. We can’t wait to explore 3-D shapes!

Second Grade

In social studies, second graders learned about the civil rights movement and the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr. After thoughtful discussions about equality, acceptance, and compassion, students came up with their own dreams for solving conflicts in the world we live in today.

Third Grade

As part of our data and measurement unit, students measured the distance of their standing long jump. Once completed, we compiled our data and made a line plot to represent the information collected. We discussed the range, median, and mode of our data.

Additionally, students' heights were measured and compared to their heights since September. A couple students have grown 1 1/4 inches in the past four months. It has been amazing to see the academic and physical progress of our third graders since the fall!

Fourth Grade

Our fourth graders shined at our concert this past week. This group of students LOVE singing and making music. This concert was a great opportunity for them to show their skills!

Fifth Grade

This week, fifth graders got to enjoy the snow by going cross country skiing during P.E. class! It was a chilly day, but the students bundled up and skied on the path with smiles on their faces!

Sixth Grade

The Sixth Graders returned to Studio Y to decode new mysteries involving lost artifacts and the missing Professor B. Bumble. Having studied ancient civilizations, these Adventurers came prepared to tackle new clues about this challenging mystery. Not only did students decipher codes, but thanks to their excellent math skills, students could plot coordinates that revealed a secret location.

The plot thickens as we continue our quest to solve this ancient mystery.

The Game is afoot!

Stay tuned for more adventures at Studio Y!
