A big thank you to Jane Dorman for teaching the lower grade room the Japanese paper folding art called origami. The students created paper frogs, cups, flowers and balloons. This fit in well with the study of Asia as part of the trip around the world.
The kindergartners celebrated learning to read and write the 26 basic phonograms and were presented with reader awards. As part of the celebration, they made their own peanut butter and jelly sandwiches cut into letter shapes with cookie cutters. These were eaten along with ABC soup. The five young readers are Jon Boone, Madison Leckwee, Amaris Peterson, Sierra Van Hatten and Matthew Walker.
The upper-grade room participated in a mission at the Challenger Center on Thursday. They successfully completed their mission called "Rendezvous with a Comet." The students were assigned a special role on the mission team and had to use careful communication skills to get the job done right.
