Students in the 3rd - 5th Grade Learning Lab group worked on an interesting art project on Wednesday afternoon under the direction of Miss Delisle.  

They used different tools to create the different effects of the "splatter" from the paint and gravity:

Classroom teachers across the state of Missouri are given the opportunity to apply for a grant through the MDC Discover Nature Schools Nature Unleashed program.  With this grant teachers have the chance to promote conservation education through instructional units through resources and funding from the grant. 

One of the units the students have done with the grant is to plant Boxwood shrubs between the main building and the art/music building.  Not only will this be a beautiful addition to the campus, it has a purpose.  As they grow they will provide shelter from any debris and wind.  

Pictured below are:
Bella, Violet, Constance, Mr. Allen, Brayden, Caine and JC planting the new boxwoods.

What do the two have in common?  The Peacebuilder program  teaches students about being kind to others, working to bring peace to the community and to school.  The elephant is none other than sweet Dumbo!  Students in the Morning PreK class spent some time in the library being read the book Dumbo and learning what it means to care about each other and be accepting of each others differences.

Cooking with Cass

Cooking with Cass

Students in our kindergarten classes have started their adventures with the SuperKids reading program and the first character that they've met is Cass.  Cass loves to cook casserole concoctions, as I'm sure you've probably heard, and she also has a cat named Coconut that likes to watch her cook.  The students are so excited about their superkids adventures that one of Mrs. Palmers students, Noah, decided to make a recipe in his "Cass's Cookbook". 

He was so excited to work on this dish and his parents were as well and couldn't wait to share his creation with us.

 

Great Job Noah!!!
