Some of the events scheduled: 5th grade - Origami, 1st Grade - marshmallow/toothpick engineering, 3rd Grade - how animals collect food, K - pretzel & Twizzler 100's, 2nd Grade - collecting DNA from strawberries, and 4th Grade - aging yourself on an app and writing what it would be like in 100 years.

The Phantom Toll Booth

Our CAMP teachers have been working hard in LASSO with being innovative with our extension students. Ms. Ware worked with her 5th grade group in creating a play based on the book - The Phantom Tollbooth. The students built the props, made their costumes, and wrote their own lines. They performed it masterfully for second grade on Thursday.
