4th grade ESOL students had their initial session with their "Book Buddies" today.  They are helping our newest students (in Pre-K) work on letter identification and letter sounds.  This program promotes reading and literacy for ALL students.  Our little ones not only learn how to read, but develop a love for reading.  Our older students learn patience, empathy, and the importance of service.

Mrs. Lyons' 2nd grade class had a great time modeling the phases of the moon. They created each moon phase by consuming a piece of their cookie.  They used their scientific and academic language: orbit, new moon, waxing crescent,  tool, consume.  It was fantastic!!!!!
