3rd Grade and 5th Grade Collaboration!

3rd and 5th grade buddies using "star editing" strategies to strengthen narratives of the story "Snow Day Mystery".

Some of our 5th grade students peer-edited narratives with their 3rd grade buddies. Students offered suggestions on figurative language, rich dialogue and how to make sentences stronger with sensory details. Students left the activity with a great sense of pride and a new friend!



 
For the safety of our students: No one will be allowed into the building 30 minutes before dismissal time. No exceptions will be made.

Morning Drop-off
Please be aware that drop off in the morning is intended to be a quick process.  We ask that your child is ready to exit the vehicle with his/her backpack, lunchbox, etc.    Parents should not be putting their cars in “park” and getting out to get children settled.  If your child requires more attention at drop off, please park in the back parking lot (not the small one at the front of the school) and walk him/ her to the door.
 
Students arriving at school after 7:35am will be considered tardy. Please plan accordingly, as there is a lot of traffic in the morning.
