Mrs. Courtemanche's and Mrs. Boyce's students went outdoors for a hands-on math lesson.  Using their knowledge of clocks and telling time, the students drew and numbered huge clocks on the blacktop.  The students then used their bodies to create the hour and minute hands.  The kids loved this activity, which required them to work together in teams to properly space out the hour numbers on the clock and arrange their bodies in correct placements for the times.


Locust Grove Elementary students were welcomed back to school with positive and inspirational messages at every step. The Locust Grove Elementary PTA held a Chalk the Walk event, Sunday afternoon, where PTA and staff members wrote messages at every building entrance welcoming students to the new year.
