Congratulations to our latest Positive Office Referrals. We are so proud of your accomplishments and encourage you to keep up the great behavior.

Second grade classes visited Matthew's Forest for Earth Day activities. Students learned about the water cycle, plants, pond life, trees, painted t-shirts and much more! Everyone had a great time learning!

Students in Ms. Robinson's pre-kindergarten class enjoyed some Spring STEM Activities. One activity included egg races using guttering ramps and platforms that were different heights. Students predicted which egg would reach the bottom of the ramp first. The class also arranged jelly beans around the edge of plate and Mrs. Blackburn poured warm water in the plate. The warm water dissolved the jelly bean sugar coating causing a rainbow of colors. Our last activity students stacked plastic egg halves to see how high they can get before they fall. The entire class had a wonderful time.

Fourth grade students gave a wonderful STPO performance on Thursday, April 25th. Students sang songs, drummed, and presented their families with a flower and a personal message. After the performance we also enjoyed a slideshow featuring all of the fourth grade students. It was a memorable evening.
