Written by Brigette Cassell, 1st grade teacher
Yay! We are excited about the Spring! In
the first grade, for the next few weeks
we will be learning all about plants.
Today, Mrs. Helen ( former kindergarten
teacher) joined us via Zoom. We learned
and discussed what a plant needs to grow
and the parts of a plant.
Do you know the parts of the plant? If
not ask a 1st grader!

The Kindergarteners are working on
an environmental print project. What
better way to explore the world of
reading around them then to read the
logos and package wrappers of the
things that they see every day!
Symbolism is an important part of
the world and students recognize
symbols in their environment like the
logo of the Target store or even the
McDonald’s arch sign. This week they
are going to create a collage of the
logos that they see on a regular basis
to display in the classroom on Friday!

Written by Lavondra Ham, 3rd grade teacher
For the month of March and into April, the Third Grade has been
learning about the human body! Before students began working in
collaborative groups students learned about some of the different body
systems that make the body work.
Students were then divided into different partnerships and groups to
research and discover more in-depth information about the body system.
The topics covered include the digestive, circulatory, nervous, and skin
systems. They will all have different responsibilities for each part of the
project. This gives them the opportunity to be research writers, visual
aid artists, speakers, games and activity planners, and experiment
The class has really been excited to work on this project. Students have
come up with creative and interesting ways to express how they will
teach each other about their body system. The best part is watching
students come up with new ideas and learning how to collaborate on a
project together. I look forward to seeing more of what they come up
