Our first two weeks have been busy.
Basketballs and Ball Cart: We want to extend thanks to the Kessler family for the donation of basketballs as well as our Parent Teacher Team for the ball cart. Students have been enjoying the new playground and equipment in these glorious sunny days.
Music Room: Mrs. O'Brien noted that her new music room is big enough to hold 2 classes of students! Here students are singing the Star-Spangled Banner after listening to selections from an informational picture book that included historical facts on the Star-Spangled Banner.
Extended Learning Areas: Here Mrs. Mershman is using one of the extended learning areas on the second floor to review multiplication with 3 and 2 digit numbers.
Technology: Students in Mr. Young's class used their chromebooks to review concepts in geometry.
Traffic Pattern: We want to thank everyone for their patience. Our morning traffic pattern seems to be flowing well. Many of us are using the newly opened routes before and after school and this seems to be helping as well. Our afternoon pick ups also seem to be working better. More and more parents are staying in their vehicles and pulling forward as space allows. Many of you with kindergarten and preschoolers are parking in the north parking lot and walking through the building for the direct pickup. This is great. Families with siblings are meeting on the "big C." Thank you all. It has been a fabulous 2 weeks!
Just a few pictures of the old school as demolition begins. We love our new school. We will continue to hold to the memories of 357 East South Street.
