FIRST MONTHS OF SCHOOL ON TRACK
Our first months of school have gone well and we are off to a terrific start this new school year. Our theme this year is full STEAM ahead. The letters in STEAM stand for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. We will be giving extra focus to these subjects this year along with implementing a new reading program called Reading Street. We are excited to have you join us on our expedition this year - full STEAM ahead!
A representative from the iRobot company came to talk with classes as part of our work on STEAM. This is the company that makes the Roomba, a carpet-cleaning robot. Students actually were able to control the robot.
Below are pictures of third graders working on robotics - a STEAM activity.
The annual fifth-grade spelling bee was held in January. Congratulations to all!
Students in fourth and fifth grades went on a field trip to the Wright Museum. They learned about the time period during WWII and saw many artifacts. This is the time period chosen for this year's visit to the one-room school house.
Mrs. Wieck's fifth grade, along with Mrs. Gingrich and Mr. Gingrich, learned about, made, and launched rockets. Check out the progress below.
