The Reindeer Games Continue...
Spirit month is still going strong with our staff (and students) participating in five more ridiculous days of holiday cheer. This week we had "Dress like a reindeer," "Wear your favorite winter hat/scarves/socks," "Pajama day," "Favorite plaid," and "Jeans + Holiday sweater." Stay tuned for next week's shenanigans!
Ms. Schulz + Ms. Hill
If you take a closer look at the wardrobes of these two staff members, you'll notice lots of twinning days throughout the whole school year, but this was a special case!
Lots of fun was happening throughout Patrick Henry this week!
Students were caught in the act of having fun all over the building this week! From academic focus to teamwork during recess, our students have fun throughout the school day. We are excited to see not only our non-academic tasks bringing our students joy, but also our academic tasks! Our students are proud of their work - and for good reason!
Our kindergarteners showed off their letter writing skills with happiness and holiday joy!
Honor and Keith worked together to build an awesome tower in Ms. Jones' room during a chilly day with indoor recess!
Highlight on Ms. Williams' Math Techniques
This week, students in upper elementary have been taking so many tests to assess their current levels in reading and math. When I popped into Ms. Williams' fifth grade class, I got to see a wide variety of techniques to get students comfortable during their testing experience and in their assessment environment. Kudos to Ms. Williams for providing flexible options for her students!
Thinking it through
Students worked through their problems with trial and error, and with the ease of erasing mistakes or ideas. Doesn't it make you want to draw all over the desk?! Not these fifth graders - they were focused and on task!
Bigger work surface
Sometimes shifting your perspective and seeing your work displayed on the big white board helps you see the process with more clarity.
