Does your child have a flair for drama? There are two theatre camps offered through the district in July. Our own drama teacher, Mrs. Hancock helps with this camp. See this flyer for more information.
What is more out of this world than a third grader? How about third graders at the planetarium learning all about out of this world stuff? The third grade field trip to Clark Planetarium was so much fun. They were treated to a movie in the dome theater, a presentation in front a massive earth shaped sphere and finally a yummy lunch at the park. Some of the students favorite exhibits were: the real life meteor, the tornado simulator, building and launching rockets into space, and an adventure onto the planet Mars, equipped with rovers and everything.
First grade was able to witness the life cycle of butterflies first hand! This is a perfect example of hands on learning. The kids not only learned about the butterflies life cycle, but they also had the opportunity to witness it up close within the classroom! After waiting patiently for the rainstorms to pass they were able to release the butterflies. It was difficult for the first graders, they wanted to keep them as pets, but ultimately they were able to see the little ladies fly free.
