    • SGA Inductions

      Recently voted in SGA class representatives made their pledges and took the oath of office along with newly elected officers. Our students take pride in knowing they can make a difference and that their voices will be heard! Our students are our future leaders so it is important to teach them early on how to do their civic duty and help to change the world!

    • Story Element Pumpkins

      Second graders have been busy learning about story elements and character traits. Story elements of focus have been beginning, middle, and end, story summaries, and characters. They learned about character traits and how to use elements of the story to learn more about each character. As a culminating activity, students were asked to select a favorite book and carefully pay attention to the story elements and character traits of each character in the book. Students then created story webs and summarized the beginning, middle and end of their book of choice. To make the activity even more fun, families were asked to decorate a pumpkin to resemble one the characters in the book.

    • Artist in the Schools

      Thanks to our Artist in the Schools program, our students were able to experience and learn about the history and process of jazz during a performance by Greg Gelb and the La Fiesta Latin Jazz Quartet. The musicians demonstrated the influence of Latin and African rhythms on the Early Jazz of New Orleans, Swing, Bebop and Modern jazz. They played music by players such as Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and Tito Puente. Some of our students were even invited to dance with the band!
