Due to extracurricular activities on Tuesday, illness in Pre-School, and staff shortage, there will be NO After School Program this week(Monday, January 24th – Wednesday, January 26th).
Thank you, Mrs. Starke
Inspired by Elizabeth Magie, the inventor of Monopoly, kindergarten designed their own game boards. 2nd grade came over to play with us. There was lots of twirling, jumping jacks, and crawling like a caterpillar when you landed on a sticker.
Lister-Sage Gym will be CLOSED December 20, 2021-December 24, 2021 for maintenance/repairs. This means there will be NO practices and/or classes held in the gym that week. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Kindergarten spent some time at the museum learning about things of the past. Their favorite items included baby strollers, rusty keys, fire truck, dentures, and the school out house!
There will be a parent meeting for those who have children going on the Washington D.C. trip in June of 2022 on Tuesday, November 16th at 6:30 PM in Mr. Bounous’s room and on Zoom.
Please contact Mr. Bounous at the school or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to get the connection information for the Zoom meeting.
The First Grade classroom is integrating some new technology pieces this year. They received an iPad and Osmo Genius gaming system. This week they began exploring the Tangram game during work stations . Students build and work through different puzzles. The Osmo system projects their work onto the screen and turns the 2D image into an animated character when they work through it correctly. It has been a lot of fun so far!
Fifth grade got their hands dirty with some pumpkin math! Before digging into their pumpkins, they counted the lines, found the circumference, weight and height, and observed if pumpkins sink or float when submerged in water. Then they dig in and counted how many seeds their pumpkin had. According to the data they collected, they concluded that the greater the circumference, the greater the number of seeds.
Kindergarten through 12th grade students celebrated a successful first quarter of the 2021-2022 school year with this year’s first quarterly assembly. One highlight of the assembly was a team building game. Each team had to organize themselves to create a given number. Mr. Hagge then congratulated the student body on their hard work both academically, athletically, and in extra curricular activities as well. We have very talented students in all areas!
Students who made the Honor Roll for the first quarter were announced. The assembly wrapped up with the PBIS team’s drawing for the Breakfast of Champions and announcement of the Student of the Month. Way to go Hawks on a successful beginning of the school year!
