Buckingham Coffee & Books

Mrs. Kraus hosted a first "Buckingham Coffee & Books". Teachers could review age-appropriate selections in various categories like "Chapter Books, Grades 4, 5, 6" as well as themes such as "Diversity." The before-school turnout was great and teachers loved the opportunity to enrich their students' literacy experiences.

Scientists in Action

Mrs. Fillette’s class practiced using our “I Wonder” Circle as we wondered, thought, tried, observed, recorded, discovered, and wondered again! Students were given lots of random supplies to explore and wonder about. Students created and tested their own experiments! We are scientists in action!

First Grade Field Trip to Howell

First grade students took a field trip to Howell Living History Farm. While there, they learned about corn farming from the early 1900’s. Students picked, shelled, and ground corn. In the kitchen, they cooked and ate popcorn, churned milk into butter, gathered wood for the fire and eggs from the chicken coop. They also cooked and ate delicious corn bread. First graders learned that children on the farm had many chores and worked hard to help keep the farm running.
