Biomes in grade 5

During the month of March, the fifth grade studied different biomes with Mrs. Racine in science class.  A biome is a place where a variety of different species live.   Students are learning that there  are many different biomes in the world.  

Groups of students in each 5th grade class painted a few of the many biomes in the world.  Some examples of chosen biomes were freshwater lake, estuary, savanna, and river.   With Mrs. Pettibon's help in the art room,  groups drew and planned out a biome scene.   Next students painted the biome scene on a huge oval piece of paper.  The final products are finished, and they look great!  A big thanks to Mrs. Pettibon for her help.

School Wide POPS Award

On Thursday, March 10, the whole school celebrated a POPS award. It was movie day at school!  Kindergartners got to pick between 2 movies, and grades 1-6 had the choice of six movies (six teachers). Students had many options for movies including: the LEGO Movie, Page Master, The Never-ending Story, and much more. This award lasted from 9:30-11:00, when students gathered in the assigned classroom that the movie of their choice was playing.

"I liked the movie, the Never-Ending Story." said fourth grader, C.W.

"I would rather do that than homework." said sixth grader J.V.

"Fun for the audience" said fifth grader C.H.

When the final S in V.U.E.S. is done, there will be another school-wide celebration!

The S is almost complete!

Reading for Dr. Seuss's Birthday

On March 2, Mrs. Wenzel's sixth grade went over to Mrs. Bearor's Kindergarten class to read books by Dr. Seuss to the students in celebration of the author's birthday. Each sixth grader paired up with a student and read books such as Horton Hears a WhoThe Grinch, The Cat in the HatThe Foot Book, and more! It was an enjoyable experience for all, and we hope to do it again.
