4th Grade Floor Plans

March 2016

The 4th grade class was challenged with designing a home that had to be between 950 sq. ft. and 1,000 sq. ft.  They had to determine their measurements and find the total area and perimeter of each room as well as their entire house.  They did a great job and put a lot of effort into their designs!

Junior High News

March 2016




           To accomodate for PARCC testing, we had to change the schedule slightly.  In doing so, we had a little extra time so Mrs. Schlund decided to have the junior high students work on quilts.  These quilts will be donated to Freedom House.

In other news, Mrs. Schlund is doing a mini unit on first aid with the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes.  They are learning how to make slings, use ace bandages, and splints.  All great life skills to know but we hope they never have to use them!
