A small group of second graders were given the chance to take piano lessons as part of an enrichment group. These students practice for 30 minutes each morning and recently were ready to showcase their hard work. Parents and staff were invited to a recital where all piano students performed one of their favorite pieces.
Students participating in this enrichment group include Amelia Jones, Akaysha Dunn, Mary Cing, Amaree Swanagan, Madisyn Thomas and Javionte Thomas. This group is led by Corey Cellurale.
Math night was a great opportunity for teachers, parents, and students to work together. Families played a variety of games and explored interesting ways to practice math at home. Many discovered that math can be fun!
As Kindergarten celebrated Read Across America this week, guest readers visited their classrooms. Staff from around the building shared one of their favorite Dr. Seuss stories as students listened attentively. Students also participated in fun activities throughout the week like crazy sock day on Tuesday for the book Fox in Socks or mismatched clothes on Wednesday for Wacky Wednesday. The week culminated with green eggs and ham on Friday and students were encouraged to dress as their favorite Dr. Seuss character.
On Friday, February 24, students spent hard earned Foust Bucks on the club experience of their choice. Clubs offered included wood working, cake decorating, basketball, canvas painting, and many more. Students who chose to attend the fancy hair club, went home with a new look and a small group of students starred in their own movie! Students and staff look forward to the next club day!
On Groundhog's Day, students got a special vist from Kristen Allen and her rescue groundhog Griff. Ms. Allen talked to the students about how groundhogs use their claws to dig burrows and use their teeth to eat plants. She also taught students that groundhogs are true hibernators. Later in their classrooms, students got an up-close look at Griff and his adaptations.
