The 100th Day of School


We celebrated the 100th Day of School on Friday, January 30. Students brought so many fun things to count, classify, and share. This activity helps our first graders learn to count by tens to 100!

Discovery Gateway: The Reaction Time Assembly

The fifth graders received a visit from Discovery Gateway.  The Reaction Time assembly taught the students about physical and chemical changes.  Our presenter, Skye, showed the kids what would happen if they set certain chemicals on fire, different kids of acid and bases in cabbage juice, what goes on inside Mrs. Rudd's stomach, and introduced the students to Freddy.  The student's also participated in a lab where they were able to mix solids and liquids to test the chemical and physical reactions.

Exploring Gravity in Second Grade


Second grade students have gained an understanding of gravity by reading books, watched video and perfomed experiments that allow them observe falling objects and identify things that prevent them from reaching the ground. They have communicated these observations that similar objects of varying masses fall at the same rate through class discussions and journal entries.  

Students perfomed an experiment in which they dropped different objects from the same height at the same time to gain a deeper understanding of gravity.
