The weather took a turn for the worse, but things are still bright and cheerful in Room 210! This week, the kids created and presented brochures based on research they did on famous European explorers. Their work is on display in the hall with Kristel’s amazing bulletin board. If possible, take a moment to stop by and have a look! Read more »
We’re just over a week away from our trip to Camp Waskowitz. The kids seem very excited and we haven’t even talked about it much in class. Our preparations will really begin next week, and I’m sure the excitement will continue to grow!
If you have any questions about the trip as it gets closer or need another copy of the gear list, please feel free to let me know.

The kids’ Native American projects wrapped up this week as well. We saw fabulous presentations, learned some dances, and ate a lot of great food. Read more »

Through my teacher account, I’m able to see how much time each student is spending practicing, so there is no need to fill out any paperwork to keep track of time. Login instructions are coming home with the kids today. Read more »
