Elizabeth is going to submit her piece to the Congressional Art Competition- but we needed a frame! Her unique work's depth made it difficult to find a ready- made one. Her and I planned out the dimensions of the frame. Then faculty assistant, Patrick, cut it out. Some fine gentlemen from the shop came in to help assemble it! Thank you! We are definitely Better Together!

4th graders in Ms. Kalepp’s class enjoyed doing a spring STEM project! The students had to build a fortress to protect their peep. They found out that the jellybeans were tough to build with, but they enjoyed the building process. When finished building, we tested out the strength of their fortress by placing books on top! All the peeps survived but the class learned that since the jellybeans were round their structures didn’t stand up straight for long with the weight of the books. The kids had a lot of fun!
When students work hard and get ahead in their work, what do you do with them? Let them work on a self-motivated art project- painting with Bob Ross! Love to see them getting excited over creating!
These 2nd graders did an awesome job on a project for library time. Both classes were introduced to Baby Mouse as a first graphic novel. Keep that love of reading!
