Kindergarten and First Grade celebrated a successful year with a Scooter Day! They decorated their scooters and paraded around the nursing home. A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this fun for the kiddos! We are scooting right into summer!

Kindergarten and Angelman’s Syndrome

Last week Kindergarten had a special visitor, Ava Stock. Ava came to visit and tell us about Angelman’s syndrome. We learned that her DNA doesn’t follow the ABAB pattern. She has two dad genes next to each other. We learned how we were like Ava (she likes pizza and so do we) and how we are different (she can’t walk yet, but we can). We finished out the week supporting Angelman’s syndrome by participating in the Angelman’s syndrome walk!


Trout Release

Fifth graders have spent the last several months raising Rainbow Trout. Last Thursday was release day! We were fortunate to get permission from Nebraska Game & Parks to release them at Walgren Lake. After the release, we went on a “Water Bug Hunt”. Some “water bugs,” or macroinvertebrates, are more sensitive or tolerant of pollutants than others, so they can be a good indicator of water quality.
