We were excited to welcome author Brandon Mull on Wednesday, November 20. He has written several books including Fablehaven, Spirit Animals, Five Kingdoms, the Beyonders and his newest series Dragonwatch. He shared stories and experiences about his writing experiences. 

He started by playing The Imagination Game. He had three volunteers come up and helped him come up with a situation and helped create a story. He said, using details and description helps a reader visit some amazing places and have amazing experiences.

Fifth Grade Wax Museum

Submitted by susan.bird on Tue, 11/19/2019 - 14:49

On Monday, November 18, our fifth graders held their annual wax museum. The students did an amazing job and performed for the school and for parents. To prepare, the students read a biography about a famous American and took notes. Then they wrote and memorized a speech about their American. The students were also asked to create a poster about their American to hang on the wall behind them. Mrs. Smith, Miss White and Miss Bird (the fifth grade teachers) are so proud of all these fifth grade. The were amazing!!

We had the privilege of honoring our Veteran’s yesterday in an assembly.  Mrs. Bradford invited a very special Veteran, her dad, and others to talk with the students about what a Veteran is and how we honor them.  The students honored these Veterans and members of their own families by singing a few patriotic songs and holding up pictures of these family members. We want to thank all the Veteran’s for their service.
