  • FUN DAY 2019

    April 17th turned into a field of fun for all the students at McGee’s this year. With teamwork, laughter, and especially water, the event was quite successful and enjoyed by all. Shout out to Ms. Stephenson, the volunteers, and especially the 5th grade students for putting on a day that will long be remembered.

  • McGee’s Crossroads Elementary Author’s Tea Focuses Upon Poetry

    Mrs. Morse’s and Mrs. Thomas’ second grade classes hosted an Author’s Tea at McGee’s Crossroads Elementary School. The event showcased the original poetry created by their students. Parents, family members, and administration were invited to enjoy the student read-alouds of each child’s favorite piece of writing. Each student was tasked with creating several different types of poetry, including: Acrostic, Cinquain, Couplet, and Haiku. The learning purposes addressed included the following standards: ELA Literature Standard RL 2.4 - Describe how words and phrases supply rhythm and meaning in a story, poem, or song; Speaking and Listening Standard SL..2.4 - Tell a story or recount an experience with appropriate facts and relevant, descriptive details, speaking audibly in coherent and complete sentences; and, Language Standard L.2.6 - Use words and phrases learned through conversations, reading, and being read to, and responding to texts, including using adjectives and adverbs to describe. Students and families enjoyed refreshments as they circulated the room to listen to the young authors and to provide complimentary notes and positive feedback to be included with their poetry books.
