Happy 90th Birthday Grandma!

This morning we took 5 minutes to throw this together for a special woman in my life. She has been alive 90 years and has made a difference to so many people.

I love you Grandma!

Reduce-Reuse-Recycle Homework Project

Last week the students were tasked with creating something, anything, out of garbage.

Grade 3 Garden Update

The year is coming to a close but it seems like the garden is just starting to open! Although we are not working on the plant unit anymore, we have been going out to the garden two times a week to weed, water and observe. Many students are volunteering their recess time to be caring to the plants that we are cultivating. The flowers are blooming, the basil is ready for harvest and the beans are climbing higher and higher into the sky as they wrap around each other. Enjoy our photos!
