Life in a Snow Globe

Kindergarten students were prepared for what it would be like if they lived in a snow globe. Who knew their snow globe dreams would actually come true?!

Snow Sculptures

Students channeled their inner Michelangelo with their art assignment to create a sculpture or architecture out of snow with their families. They used their imaginations and created snowmen, snow dogs, igloos, and caves

Winter Wonderland

Snowy church scenes, winter foxes, and snowmen are sticking around CTK even after the snow outside has melted.

Culture Fair

Our 3rd graders took a trip around the world at their Culture Fair! They grabbed their passports and were off to discover new places. They wrote one fact about each country they visited in their passports and were eager to tell others about the country they researched. It was a fun afternoon for a CTK 3rd grader!
