Lower School News: March 14 – March 18, 2016

Q & U Wedding

On Friday our Kindergarten classes celebrated the Q&U Wedding! Our lovely little girls served as Queens, our boys as Quarterbacks. The PreK students served a Ring BEARers. Our fifth grade students served as Vowels, and our Senior buddies as Ssssshhhhhhers. It was a wonderful event enjoyed by all!











3rd Grade

These are pictures from a China Presentation by Mr. & Mrs. Maxwell.  We are currently studying the continent of Asia in third grade. The Maxwell’s presented a program on the culture of China.  They brought the students fortune cookies, a Chinese Zodiac calendar, and fifty cents for good fortune. Meredith read a story in Chinese that she wrote in Chinese calligraphy.



4th grade FUSE investigators are working hard to crack the case of The Lost Colony of Roanoke. Students are participating in an unsolved CSI history investigation, looking at scenarios as to why and how these colonists disappeared hundreds of years ago.




5th grade FUSE students are working on a Persuasive Writing unit about zombie pets! Students are using their creativity and persuasive skills to convince others as to why their zombie pet is the best choice to have.
