Thursday and Friday were celebrated spooky kind of way- with a FEAST class, where first graders made amazing Veggie Monsters out of delicious vegetables and a performance of their reader’s theater “There Was An Old Lady Who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything”.

Lauren Wohl came and retold her new book, “The Teeny Tiny Halloween”.  What a great book!



Fridays are for Science labs and computers!

Time Capsule

First grade buried the time capsule!  It included toys, cell phones, pictures, and writing from the first graders!  Check out some pictures.  We will dig for our treasure in 2024 when the first graders are 8th graders— where X marks the spot 🙂  Everyone had a chance to fill the hole and stomp on it!

Apple Orchard

The first graders got to enjoy an amazing field trip to Skytop Orchard.  The air was crisp and it felt like fall.  The students enjoyed a presentation, a hay ride to and from the orchard where they picked Pink Ladies, Granny Smith, and Macintosh apples.  They got to play on the playground, see the farm animals, and venture through the bamboo forest.  (The rest of my pictures are not posting. Will try again later).
