We are excited to celebrate March Madness a little different this month with Math Madness! Students in grades 3,4, and 5 are competing against each other in Multiplication facts. We had our Sweet 16 from each grade compete this week and now have the Elite 8 ready to go for next week. These kids are super speedy at their times tables. Way to go Falcons!

Day 100, but Who's Counting?

Submitted by elyssa.marzan on Tue, 02/02/2021 - 20:50

We are counting!  Today(and on Friday), many classes around the school celebrated the 100th day of school by incorporating a variety of different activities into their learning. Students counted 100 hundred items of all different sorts, made marshmallow towers using 100 marshmallows and toothpicks, created pictures using shapes, licked lollipops 100 times to see if they could make it to the center, and wrote stories about what they would be like at 100 years of age.  We are so proud of the students being 100 days smarter and of all the many things they have learned so far this year!

Reflexing their Muscles!

Congratulations to these 2nd grade students who have been working so hard learn their addition and subtraction facts fluently. These students have earned 100% proficiency on Reflex Math.  Reflex Math is a website many teachers use to help students become fluent in addition/subtraction and multiplication/division facts.  Students love the interactive games and being able to track which facts they know by heart, and which ones they still need to work on. Great job, Isaac, David, Nadia, Josh, and Kenedi!

Interview with a Snowman

Submitted by elyssa.marzan on Fri, 01/29/2021 - 15:44

2nd Grade students learned the ins and outs of what it takes to be a journalist.  Each 2nd grader was able to create their own unique snowman and then got the chance tto sit down with them to have a little chat.  They interviewed their snowman and asked questions like what their favorite winter sport or favorite ice cream was.  These kids are on their way to a whole new career!
