The sensory table in PreK may look simple with cranberries and water... Howver, children are learning how to observe, weigh and measure. They are experimenting and discovering about capacity, volume, and buoyancy.

The middle school students are having a blast with the Kids CAN Build project! This year, they have designed a globe with a rainbow over it- and are building this curved desigh out of only cans! We can't wait to see the final product, but the process of developing their idea from a sketch into a form has been exciting! 

The 5/6 students started a novel study of Wonder by R. J. Palacio. It is a beautiful story about kindness and how stepping out of our comfort zones is so worth it, even if it isn't easy.

Along with kindness, the book is rich with other themes, such as anti-bullying, compassion, acceptance, and empathy for others. We are excited to share this inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman with the students.

First and second grade has been reviewing so many topics this fall. We have enjoyed working together as a team and spending time at our hands on centers. Second grade has enjoyed breaking apart numbers, working with shapes, and mastering those addition facts. First grade just finished up sorting, creating equal groups, and graphing data. 

1-2 has their first annual Haiku High Tea Performance on Friday! They worked hard, planning, creating, and revising their works of poetic wonder! They were excited to share their work in front of the adults they love! 

Our 7/8 graders are deep into the Lewis and Clark simulation! Composing adventure-inspired songs, learning basic sign language, design a bearing board, drawing period clothing, create a message using the Vignere Cipher Table. Each day brings a new hands-on acitviity. With experience cards in hand, they're navigating their boats closer to the Pacific Ocean. 

The middle school is participting in the "A Million Thanks" program in which students wrote thank you letters to veterans. The kids learned that sending the letter is a wonderful way to offer thanks to those who served our country. https://amillionthanks.org/
