Lost and Found

Hello Parents!

Happy Summer!  We have a large quantity of lost and found items left at the school.  We will be putting the bin outside the front of the school each day this week if you’d like to come and look for a lost item.  We will donate any items left behind after Friday of this week.

I wish you all a safe and happy summer with your children!

From the Health Office

Parents:

Please remember to pick up all medications from the health office by the last day of school.

Medications left after June 17th will be destroyed.

Medication forms to the 2016-2017 school year went home this month. These forms can be mailed in over the summer or brought in the first day of school with your medication.

Have a restful and safe summer!

Ms. Davis’ Class Social Studies and Science Learning with the Green Screen!

 

Students in Ms. Davis class prepared outstanding videos of the learning in Social Studies regarding the life of Harriet Tubman.  Students  planned and memorized their lines.  They  had fun filming in the Green Screen room. They worked so hard on this and they did a great job!

Below is a link to one of  Ms. Davis’ class fantastic science videos. Students were learning about forces that change Earth’s surface and landforms. The groups studies earthquakes, volcanoes, wind, water, and ice.  Great job all of these students!
