Chickens

The 3rd grade baby chicks are ready to fly the coop! They are being taken to their new homes with fellow third grade students. This has been an exciting educational experience for our 3rd grade students!

3rd grade also incorporated this exciting classroom activity into their grandparents day program. Although each grade had a unique twist on their program, we loved the creative hats the students made for their grandparents!

Science Lab

Third grade concludes the unit on the Earth and its Neighbors.  We investigated how individual pieces could give the appearance of a complete ring.  We concluded that Saturn’s rings cold appear as a solid ring, when in actuality they are composed of small particles that appear as a solid.

Second grade continues exploring Space.  We demonstrated the reflective properties of the moon, determining that the moon produce NO light on its own.

First grade continues its investigation of gases.  We demonstrated that air takes up space.  We also investigated the properties of latex balloons.

Meet the Coach

On Monday, March 27 we invite everyone to attend the Varsity Baseball game at 5PM at the Cougar Sports Complex and stay to meet John David Sellers our new Varsity Football Coach. (This will take place at approximately 6:30.) Food will be provided while supplies last. **If the baseball game is cancelled due to weather, we will host this event in the Auxiliary Gym at 5:30PM.
