Mrs. George's class is connecting the social studies curriculum of the Kenai Peninsula and early homesteading with the "Little House" series. Students are reading "Little House in the Big Woods," by Laura Ingalls Wilder, and doing related projects such as a map study, making butter and sampling "cracklins."
First-graders are reminded to save their transportation projects for the Soldotna St. Patrick's Day Parade March 17.
The first-grade class will start a new unit about Capt. Bill Pinkney. They will read and learn about his journey around the world in his sailboat. They also will study the four continents he visited.
Congratulations to the attendance secretary, Jean Gdula on receiving the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District golden apple award. The staff and students appreciated her hard work.
