The second grade class in Mrs. Johnson’s room & is highly motivated to do their best at their spelling tests. When students score 90% or better, they have a short meeting and mini-celebration with Principal Luhman. The kids work hard to practice their words and are improving their spelling skills. Mr. Luhman hopes he is soon meeting with the WHOLE class- a likely possibility given how hard the students are trying!
What a wonderful display of author information provided by our music teacher, Lori Kelley. Students created a likeness of themselves, true to their style, and added author information inside. a few hundred of these creations line the hallway between our gym and music room. Thanks to Ms. Kelley and every student who took the time to personalize their creation and show their author style.
Students in 4th grade met with a first grade class today in the first of many “Buddy Class” activities. Buddy classes provide an opportunity for older students to work with younger students. It provides positive relationships, positive role modeling, one-on-one teaching, and fun for the older students, as well as the younger ones.

Our School’s garden will soon provide food at lunch for nearly 200 students. On November 1st, all of our recently harvested butternut squash will be added to the vegetable soup that day. This year, our 5th grade students work in the school garden through a PTO-funded program with the School Garden Project. We plan to do more of this as we continue expanding the use of our garden.
