2nd Graders Learn Native American Dances and Songs from Cherokee Member, Susan Mullins
Over the past few weeks, the second graders have been learning about America's past. They spent a lot of time studying Native Americans. In each class, students broke up into groups to complete a Native American group project. Each group was assigned a specific Native American tribe. The students had to read about their Native American group to find out what their homes looked like, what kinds of food they ate, and how they traveled. At the end of the unit, the second graders participated in a Native American program led by Cherokee member, Susan Mullins. During the program, Mrs. Mullins told students about her history, taught them tribal songs and dances, showed them artifacts and clothing, and even let them play her drum! Spending the day with Mrs. Mullins was the perfect way to wrap up the unit!

Today, our Pre-K S class held their final author celebration and invited parents in to join in on the fun! Students gained signatures from their fellow authors as they all received books of each other's published writing pieces. Great job Authors!
iReady is a computerized generated reading assessment, which gives specific data in the growth of a student's reading development. The students in K-3 are assessed at the beginning of the year, mid-year and at the end of the year, which is used to gather comparative data. The assessments target skills in the areas of Phonological Awareness, Phonics, High Frequency Words, Word Knowledge, Comprehension Literature, and Comprehension Informational Text. The assessments will indicate a student's level in each area. The classroom teachers can use this information to remediate specific areas of weakness for their students. Thank you to our Director of Student Achievement, Mrs. Paula Watkins, and Mrs. Carol Bissmeyer, our Reading Resource Teacher, for organizing and leading these assessments three times each school year.
Our 4th - 5th grade musical theater club presents "At the Bandstand" on Thursday May 14th at 7pm in the school cafeteria.
