Mrs. Frainey's 5th grade class completed their โ€œGreek Mythology Escape Roomโ€, their culminating activity after reading โ€œThe Lightning Thief.โ€ Students collaborated in small groups to complete four different challenges using various comprehension skills with passages on Greek Mythology. At each challenge there was a different method they had to use to crack the code. Once they had the 4 word phrase, they brought it to me to check. The group that got it correct received the scroll with the final riddle. They solved the riddle and found the hidden key to open the lock box with prizes inside! They loved the activity and had so much fun!

Rocket Snacks was a huge success and a fantastic learning opportunity for our students this year! Students learned about money, greetings, and reading a menu. They also really liked making the teacher's day, showing items on the cart, reading the prices, and passing out snacks!

Mrs. Dare's first grade went on a field trip to Plum Creek. Students had a fun time being centipedes, spiders, and opossums. They took a moment to listen to all the wonderful sounds on our nature walk. Students rolled down a big hill after lunch and got to meet Bluey, a blue tongued skink all the way from Australia!
