Happy 100th Day of School

Submitted by marlayne.harward on Mon, 01/28/2019 - 18:15

Can you believe we have been in school for 100 days?  Our PTA helped us celebrate with this amazing sign.  A few of our teachers also looked 100 years old. We are pretty sure it was a costume though, or was it?

Mrs. Snelgrove' Students Learn About Traditions

Submitted by marlayne.harward on Fri, 01/18/2019 - 16:59

Mrs. Snelgrove' third grade students learned about holiday traditions in several countries.  They learned that Mexico has a tradition of making pinatas.  Each student was able to make their own and then paint it.  They also learned that Holland has a tradition of placing chocolate initials at the table place setting. Each of her students made their initial in chocolate.

Kool Karate

Submitted by marlayne.harward on Fri, 01/18/2019 - 09:34

Mrs. Harward's Third Graders learned how to do karate, thanks to Mr. Brooks from Bobby Lawrence Karate.  He taught us three things about focus which are eyes, body, and mind.  He then taught us how to do a side kick.  We were reminded that karate is used in self defense not for being a bully. Afterward, a few students got the chance to break a practice board.  Last but not least, Mrs. Harward broke a real board with her hand.  Watch out for Mrs. Harward!

Miss Santaquin, Nikki Mortensen, came to our school and taught us about emotions.  We watched clips from the movies, "Inside Out" and "The Grinch".  She taught us to recognize the emotions we are feeling and to take responsibility for them.  

Mr. H Knows How to Tie a Tie

Miss Camper's second graders read the Journey's story, "Mr. Tannen’s Tie Trouble."   Mr. Hanosek asked them questions about the story and then showed them how to tie a tie.  They were so proud of Mr. H that they gave him a round of applause. The students were then each given a tie to learn how to do it themselves.   Second graders are quite good at this complicated skill.

A big thank you to all who attended SEP's this week.  We love the chance to celebrate success and set some new goals.  We are also very thankful for the generous meal for the teachers provided by our wonderful PTA.
