Happy Fall Ya'll!


This is what we have been studying in Science!

We've Got Stars!

Congrats Michael, Lex, and Jackson for getting the first A Math Stars! This is rewarded to the students who receive 100s on A Math Tests! Way to go guys!


This was a project that was started in Science Lab with Mrs. Harmon and finished in our room! They turned out great and helped the students with some of the terms dealing with ecosystems.

Creative Writing...

In reading last week, the students were assigned to write as if they were the main character in our story "The Way of the Jibaro".

Indian Legends!

Mrs. Garrison had a film strip on Indian Legends. First, they watched the film strip then developed their own legend. Take a minute to stop by and read these!
