Family Math and Science Night will be from 6 to 7:30 Thursday.

The fourth-grade winter program begins at 6 p.m. Monday in the gym.

Students in Mr. Vedders' class have been studying colonial times and discussing family traditions. The students have been learning types of games that colonial children played, including string games. Vedders was happy to continue a family tradition by teaching the students the same string games his grandma Nelson taught him when he was in third grade.

Mrs. Jackson's fourth-graders and Mrs. Heath's third-graders have been learning about and experiencing the Klondike Gold Rush. The classes will culminate the study with lunch at Sal's Klondike Diner.

The fifth-graders celebrated the end of their unit on Native Americans. Under the direction of J.D. Uponen, the students performed Native American stories, songs and dances for parents and community members. Following the performance, all interested parties were invited to the classrooms to observe displays the students had created and to hear what they had learned about their region and topic of study. The parents, students and staff appreciate the overwhelming support this annual event has garnered these last two years.
