WALK/BIKE TO SCHOOL

This year walk and bike to school numbers have ranged between 20 and 35 students daily. Walking and biking to school is a great way to get some exercise, breathe fresh air, and do something healthy for the environment. For any students that feel safe doing so, we encourage walking and biking as often as possible.  Here are some recent photos of some of our committed self-propelled students.







THANKS FOR STACKING THE SNOW TUBES

At the end of the day, it is wonderful seeing the snow tubes stacked and ready for storage. Thank you.

IMAGINATION 2nd GRADE - JOHNSON

When these pictures were taken, some students were finishing up writing work while others were engaging in computer lesson-work. After theses tasks were completed, Ms. Johnson used the overhead projector to quiz students’ reading skills and their ability to associate words with portions three- or four-letter word fragments. There was a very positive atmosphere in the classroom. Link to 30 Pictures.
