Cardinals in Action

The Honeybees 1 class has been exploring the Winter season this month, and this week we learned about winter animals. They read many sensory books and played “What’s That Animal?” to encourage literacy and cognitive skills. 

Second Grade is studying the properties of different materials with collaborative hands-on investigations!

During P.E. this week, the First Graders practiced their shots in basketball.

5th Grade silent reading fun in the Rosenberg Library! 

Our students have a great time in Chess Club!

Our 5th Grade writers deconstructed complex sentences then diagrammed them across the floor of our classroom. They are truly understanding how words and phrases can be manipulated to get their point across.
