Artifacts Marketplace

Ann Makin

The 6th graders in Mrs. Makin's class had a fun time getting to know each other this month by doing an artifact marketplace.  They each brought three items that described themselves then shared ideas of what they brought with each member of the class. It looks like we are in for a terrific year!

Back to School Day!


Be sure to come and meet your teachers at an Open House today, Aug 21st, 2013.  It will begin at 2:00 with information from Mrs. Rudd.  After, there will be 30 min. rotations to get around to your childrens' teacher/teachers and find out what this year will hold.

See you there!

Second graders spent the last month researching animals and creating habitats for their animals.  As a culminating activity they created an exhibit in their hall for the other grades to tour.  Parents were also invited to attend. It was a huge success!

Enrichment teachers Mrs. Emmett and Mrs. Gage presented a hands on experience to illustrate how Metamorphic rocks are formed. Students added chocolate chips, blueberries, marshmallows and raisins to their pancake batter and then applied heat and pressure to form their Metamorphic Pancakes.
