Flat Stanley arrived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, this week, and will travel to New Zealand next.
Mrs. Pribbenow's third-, fourth- and fifth-grade class has acquired new baby guppies in a special "nursery" in the fish tank. Other new members of the fish community include a crab and a Coli-loach.
The students are finishing and editing their original stories for the books they are making. They also are sending different stories to the "Anthology of Short Stories by Young Americans," to be published.
The sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders are listening to mystery stories by Dashiell Hammett and will write reports on them later. Quinten Pribbenow, Robert Herr and Kalie Nelson volunteered to work on editing the class movie. In math, seventh-graders are working on basic geometry, while the eighth-graders are learning exponents and radicals.
Students are enjoying the third week of the new school store coordinated by Sandee Simons on Friday after school. Students earn points by completing work promptly, earning As and displaying good behavior. The points can be traded for prizes, school supplies and toys.
The school is exploring the life of St. Patrick on weekday mornings in the sanctuary. Mrs. Pribbenow is reading "St. Patrick: Missionary to Ireland" to them.
Students and parents are reminded that spring break is next week.
