First Day of Schoolin Second Grade - Guest Post by Janette Mathis

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Welcome to 2nd Grade!!!
2nd grade is off to a great start! In reading our theme for September is Neighborhood Visits. We will be reading about friends and family. In social studies we are studying characteristics of good citizens. We will also start looking at maps and globes. I am attaching some photos from the first day of school scavenger hunt. Instead of looking for things, we were looking for people! Some of the things we looked for were: who likes pizza, who is the tallest person in our class, who has a birthday in September, etc. The kids had a great time getting to learn things about each other!

7th & 8th Grade Washington DC Trip

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Group photos of each day from our recent 7th and 8th grade student educational tour on June 18-22 to Washington, D.C. and New York. Some had their first airplane ride and then a whole lot of firsts for all of us from there on out! We saw almost every memorial and monument, visited a couple of Smithsonian Museums, experienced Arlington Cemetery and the Changing of the Guard and Wreath Ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Spectacular! We rode a bus to New York City where we took the Ferry to Ellis Island and saw the Statue of Liberty. We ate at Guy’s American Kitchen, saw a show on Broadway, and some even got on tv during the taping of the Today Show. Our trip ended at Ground Zero with a tour of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. We were in awe! Oh and I almost forgot that we caught a glimpse of Donald Trump waving to our group as he finished up a speech and was entering Trump Towers on 5th Avenue. It was an awesome trip!!!
