Flynn Performance

Kindergarten and third grade classes went to the Flynn theater to see Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters.  We had seats in the very front of the theater.   The performance was based on an African tale and included singing, dancing and a wonderful story.  We all enjoyed the show and marveled at the scenery, lighting, clothing and masks.  The performers made the story come alive.  Thank you to Darcie Rankin for arranging our trip and to all the parent volunteers who came with us to chaperone.

Creating Dream Homes for Pets

As part of a science unit on organisms we have been learning about what animals and plants need to survive. One of our favorite activities was creating dream homes for pets.  The home had to have everything the pet needed to live.   Students were very creative as they designed and built animal homes.
