Outside Recess

We are back to colder weather.  You can still go out to exercise.  Just dress warmly.

Fitness activities prior to After School Programming
Nate, from Duke's Fitness, has been showing students how to have fun and be fit before the start of their after-school activities on Mondays and Wednesdays.  His fitness games have been highly appreciated by the kids and staff.  Everyone needs to move after a day of sitting.

Rainbow Science in Kindergarten

On Thursday 3-17-2016 some of Ms. Scott's students explored the topics of light and color with flashlights, prisms, cds and cardboard tubes. Others made rainbow art by using clear nail polish, water and black paper pieces.  A different group explored merging colors as a way to understand how different colors of light can be made up of combination of light waves.  Everyone rotated among the different learning stations. It was a busy class.  All this year's kindergarteners have experienced this specific learning.


Kindergarten Scavenger Hunt
The  Kindergarten classrooms were invaded by leprechauns today! These tiny elves led them on a chase for their pot of gold all around the school they even left a clue with Mrs Biggie! When they got back to their rooms the leprechauns left them a pot of gold.

Ugli Fruit is our snack for the day
Ugli fruit is a hybrid variety of grapefruit, an orange and a tangerine.  The taste is like a cross between a lemon and tangerine. It is a large sweet juicy fruit with greenish-yellow thick wrinkled skin, about the size of a grapefruit. It is cultivated primarily in Florida where it grows into a bushy tree of 15-20ft. It always looks evergreen. Fruits do produce seeds and the trees are sometimes grown from seeds.

Ugli is an excellent source of Vitamins C and B.  It fights heart disease and protects against kidney stone formation.
