All students participate in four STEM related activities throughout the day:
Fifth grade students researched inventors and inventions in their social studies classroom. They presented information by creating a Glog – an online poster. Some students also created a Kerpoof Online Story as well! Take a look at a few of them!
Kerpoof Story Examples:
Students and staff honored our veterans with several special activities on Monday, November 12th! Children wrote letters and made cards to give veterans thanking them for their service. Students were encouraged to invite and bring veterans for a free breakfast after which a flag-waving parade was held down “Mane” Street. Some veterans spoke in classrooms. We appreciate our veterans! Thank You!
Third grade students have been studying rocks and minerals. They enjoyed an exciting day of exploration with Diamond Del’s mobile gem mine! Students were given a mining box of Brazilian mining ore. The students then sluiced the ore in the water flumes and discovered a variety of gems. What a memorable way to learn more about mineral identification and classification!
