First Grade Fireworks Art

First graders spent part of their "fun Friday" making firework art with Mrs. Hines. This is a fun craft idea you could do at home with your student.  You will need 7 bendable straws, paint, and a piece of paper. Start by stretching out the straws as far as they can go and group them together in your hand. Spread out the top of the straws so they are sticking out. Have someone put a piece of tape around the bottom of them as you’re holding them. Let go and put another piece right under the top. Have the kids dip the straws into one color of paint first and stamp it all over the paper. If the paint does not show up well, have them press each straw individually against the paper. Add some patriotic colors of paint and your fireworks are done! Add some glitter if you want to add some sparkle to . . .

Midget Muscles MVP

Exercising our minds is important, but keeping our bodies healthy is also an essential component to overall wellness. Because a good workout gets your blood flowing, more oxygen gets to your brain. And that means you can think better. 🤓Students have been keeping fit in summer school 💪, working out in Midget Muscles Fitness Program with Coach Lindhoff.   Congratulations to Elizabeth S! She is our first Midget Muscles MVP! Elizabeth worked hard all week and pushed herself to get better. She is extremely self driven and we are very proud of her work ethic. Every week we will have a new MVP, so keep up the great work! #putnamproud #midgetmusclesfitness

Summer School Fun

Day 5 of summer school proves to be a lot of fun for kindergarten students.  With cooler temps to start off the day, these kindergarten students went on a scavenger hunt on the walking trail.  Fun was had by all, and all of the items on the hunt were discovered.  After the morning walk, students were then able to visit Mrs. Joni Halley for cooking class.  The students learned about grains and how to read a recipe, then were able to work together to make trail mix.  Following the cooking lesson, the students were lead in an exercise by Mrs. Halley.

Pennies for Poppies

After learning about Memorial Day and the significance of the red poppies, the third grade students decided to complete a community service project to help the Women's Legion Auxiliary.  We called our project "Pennies for Poppies" and we collected loose change to help Missouri veterans.  In less than two weeks, the third graders collected a little over $70!  The picture shows the third grade students and the money jar.  We plan to continue this project in the coming years.
