Arbor Day Celebrations

Today our school celebrated Arbor Day by planting two new trees together on the School Street playground. Our class read some sentences about trees in front of the group for part of the celebration. The kids enjoyed may books, songs, and art opportunities around the topic of trees today.

Sink or Float

Today the kids worked in cooperative learning groups to complete a science activity. They were given roles within the groups. We will be doing more of this in the weeks to come.

New Daily Sign In

The kids are now signing in every day by their last names. It is a little tricky but great practice.

2nd Annual SCS K-2 Field Day

Tomorrow the kids will be taking home a very important note about our SCS K-2 Field day which will be Friday, June 1 from 9-11am. We will be purchasing team t-shirts and will need you to return the order form with the size you would like your child to have. No need to send money as it is our pleasure to buy the shirts for the kids as a fun memory keepsake for the year. If you can help run one of our field day "Dress Up" stations, please let me know. We will need each volunteer to be able to commit to being available for both Friday, June 1 and on the rain date of Monday, June 4th.

Goodbye Butterflies

Goodbye butterflies! The kids had the opportunity to watch five caterpillars transform into butterflies just before vacation. Today we let them go!
