Big picture

Spotlight On - 2nd Grade!

Second-grade students have been learning about Hispanic Heritage Month, which started Sept. 15 and ends Oct. 15. Students have watched videos featuring adults and children talking about heritage and Hispanic culture. They are also reflecting on their own heritage. We have discovered lifelong North Carolinians, Mexican, Guatemalan, Honduras, Salvadoran, Brazilian heritage and more!

Specialist Corner

Hey Cool Cat Families! It's your Physical Education teachers here, Coach Sheeran and Miss A. In PE class, we try to focus on creating healthy relationships and lifestyles for all of our students through exercise and learning skill-based activities. First the first few weeks of school, we have been introducing new and old exercises to students for physical activity each week joining in on student's zoom sessions, as well as teaching skills, such as basketball dribbling and shooting, on our online learning platforms with Seesaw and Google Classroom. Each week we try to teach new skills and activities to students for them to learn skills for different sports such as basketball, bowling, and baseball. We look forward to continuing to work on getting healthy through this new world of digital learning. "Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong." - John F. Kennedy
