2nd Grade STEM Project -  The challenge was to collaborate with a partner and build a structure that would support an apple.  At the end, the class did a gallery walk to see the other student's structures and hear about what went well and the challenges they had in building.


4th & 5th Grade - Ancient china Day was a huge success for 4th and 5th grade.  Students made terracotta warriors, calligraphy painting on the recycled paper made previously, Chinese lanterns, fans, origami, tangrams and a huge Chines dragon was created to be hung up in the stairwell with all our Chinese emperors.  The fourth and fifth grade team want to thank-you our parents so much for pulling together the best “Ancient China Day” ever.  You all were remarkable!   Thanks so much,  Mrs. Deeter, Mrs. Vickery, Mrs. Wieker, and Ms. Gordon

LIBRARY CALL FOR HELP!  We have several volunteers who have been intrepidly working on entering books into the new computer system.  It's simple but a bit slow.  Only one person can work at a time.  However, if we can fill up all the time slots during school hours it will go much faster.  If you have 1/2 hour or an hour a week to pop in and do some entering there are written instructions that you can follow and I will be available via text or phone to help with any questions.  When you're finished with your shift, simply leave a post-it on the computer to let the next volunteer know where you stopped, as well as placing the orange cardstock marker on the shelf that says START HERE.  

Please, please sign up for time slots that are convenient for you and we'll get this done and have a wonderful library for our kiddos and teachers to enjoy. You'll find the sign-up below.  Thank you so much!  Twila Newey-Warner 303-883-2664
