At the end of each month, our grade levels participate in Class Dojo celebrations, awarding students for excellent behavior throughout the month. Our Kindergarten teachers have paired up with our 5th grade teachers to create a buddy system and celebration together. This month, students read a book together and created book character puppets!


In fourth grade, our students participated in an egg drop competition. There was a lot of math and science involved in the construction, but only a few eggs survived the drops! The kids had an absolute blast!
