First Presentations

Mrs. Fenton's first graders had their first taste of presenting their work in front of the class earlier this week.  After studying various interesting animals, students were sent home with the outline of a person.Their assignment was to create coverings from household items such as pasta, feathers, and paper to represent the protective exteriors of their favorite critter. As an example, pangolins are mammals which have large, protective keratin scales covering their skin.  Using lasagna noodles to represent the scales, a student gave a detailed description of this animal to the classroom.  This fun activity engaged students on several levels and won't soon be forgotten.

Stretching in Math

Campus Beautification

Last spring, the National Junior Honor Society decided they wanted to make improvements to the landscaping outside of the middle school.  After meeting and discussing the issue with Middle School Principal Mr. Garber, we agreed to have the already existing plants removed and place mulch with planting barrels on top.   This Thursday, the National Junior Honor Society and Student Council officers worked together to plant fall mums in the newly provided barrels.  Thank you to Mr. Garber for making this possible.  All students involved had great time working together to beautify our campus.
