Not only is Rocket Math a great way for students to develop their math fact skills, but this is a time of day the 1st graders look forward to and really enjoy!
Love was in the air a little early for 7th grade science!💘 The students implemented their knowledge of Mendelian Genetics with a hands activity of monster speed dating. Activities like this allow students to practice concepts they learn in class in a fun and silly way.
To practice their newfound knowledge discussing body parts, symptoms, illnesses, and physical ailments in español, Spanish 2 students created a doctor visit skit where they had to explain their symptoms and receive a diagnosis from the doctor. Practicing the language in real-world scenarios helps students absorb and retain information in a more concrete and practical way.

With the help of donations from staff, Nurse Emily has started a program to teach students about the many benefits of houseplants and how to care for them. Students can learn how to care for different types of plants and when ready, adopt a plant of their own to take home. Studies have shown that having plants has many benefits such as: boosting creativity, being a natural stress reliever, improving mental health, teaching responsibility, increasing productivity, and cleaning the air. Here are a few of our first plants that were adopted by students! If you would like to learn more about this program or would consider donating established plants or supplies, please reach out to Nurse Emily!

Did you know that there are 44 sounds represented by the 26 letters in the English language? Even more interesting is that of those 44 sounds, 20 are vowel sounds! Many spelling patterns can have two or more sounds using a single spelling, making vowels the tricky part of words. Mrs. Curtis, the district Reading Specialist, has replaced a word wall in her room with a sound wall as a resource to help students understand and use the many vowel sounds and spelling patterns they encounter in their daily reading and writing. The mouth formation photos allow students to have one more piece of critical information-- what their mouth should look like and what they should feel inside their mouths when correctly making each sound. Knowing sound-spellings and how to produce vowel sounds is key for students as they learn to read and write since every word, or part of a word, contains one vowel sound.
