News from the Library

8th grade Info Tech students recently got a taste of the real world. In their last unit of the trimester, each student had to choose a career path, write a resume, create a cover letter and practice going on a job interview. They practiced with Ms. Mawn as well as with their classmates. As the culminating activity, faculty members and parent volunteers came in to act as prospective employers to interview them.

Mini Makers Club: Students in 3rd and 4th grades were very excited to begin making upcycled dollhouses. Using everyday objects such as cardboard boxes, scraps of paper and fabric, paper towel tubes, beads and more, we got a great start this past Wednesday.

News from Kindergarten

Kindergarten celebrated the official Read Across America week! We read lots of Dr. Seuss books, did fun activities, and shared our Seuss books with our 4th grade book buddies!
