4th & 5th Grade Strataca Field Trip

    On Wednesday, May 12, 2021 the 4th and 5th grade classes took a trip to Hutchinson. Normally every year the 4th grade goes to Hutchinson, but last year the 5th graders didn't get their trip to Hutchinson because of COVID.  We started our day off visiting Strataca. We spent our morning 650 ft. underground exploring the salt mine and learning about how salt is mined.  We got to do a special tour called the Dark Walk.  We were given a flashlight and we walked farther into the mine to check out other cool things that a normal tour doesn't get to see!  In the afternoon, we ate lunch and played . . .

Sixth Grade End-of-Year Activities

  Sixth Grade End-of-Year Activities by Mrs. Kayla Paxson   The end of the year always seems to fly right by and this year was no exception. The sixth grade students were quite busy finishing off the year finalizing unit activities and projects. Here were some of our favorites: Science Marble Roller Coasters - Students worked in groups to engineer a “roller coaster” for two separate marbles of different weights using pre-formed pipe insulation (that has a “track” for the marbles to roll through). Students had to constantly adapt to different heights, weights, accelerations, . . .

4th & 5th Reading Party

Nature Day at the River Park

The 4th and 5th grade classes do a quarterly reading goal instead of a monthly reading goal.  Since they only get four parties a year while the rest of the classes get one each month, we try to go all out for the party.  Our final party was a trip to the Argonia River Park for a nature day.  We started off with a nature scavenger hunt.  When the hunt was over, we came back together and shared what we had found while roaming the park.  Next, we had a picnic. The kids got blankets and spread them out around the park to enjoy some snacks and refreshing drinks. Then we used nature to create some art.  They . . .

4th Grade Famous Kansan Wax Museum

    The 4th grade learned about several famous Kansans at the beginning of the school year.  At the end of the year, each student chose a famous Kansan that they wanted to research and learn more about. Using their research, they wrote a biography about their Kansan. Then they memorized interesting facts and then presented them during our wax museum.  Since we needed to stay distanced from other classes and parents could not attend, we made a video of their wax museum presentations.   Enjoy!   Click here to view our wax museum video!
