The children came back to school, enthusiastic and ready to work. They all had a productive week of working on many different skills, concepts and projects. The highlight of the week was enjoying playing outside in the snow with their friends.
The upper elementary students discussed and worked on the life, works, and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The lower elementary students had interesting discussions about him and asked many poignant questions about Social Justice.
The upper elementary children have begun a detailed research project about the different systems of the human body starting with the Muscular System.
The lower elementary students have also started the study of the human body. Starting with the Senses and the Skeletal System.
Spelling Work and Homework:
We have given students new spellings lists. Children will be on a weekly spelling schedule from now on. Please, help your child review the spelling words at home.
Children should work on their weekly journals and both Simple Solutions books as well.
Have a great Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
