Our Knapp Forest Fourth Graders performed ‘Once Upon a Dream’ ( a Cinderella Story) as their musical this year.
Our theme this year is “Duck Duck Dewey” – with a focus on reading books from the different Dewey Decimal categories. The school has been divided into 7 teams which will be competing in a Dewey Duck Derby to win baskets full of non fiction titles for their classroom libraries. Be sure to keep track of non fiction reading at home! Students can also fill out Duck Duck Dewey bingo cards to be placed into a drawing for individual fun prizes. Be sure to check out our Dewey Duck Pond in the main hallway throughout the month to see what new facts we are learning as we read. Watch for more information to come home with your student, email Mrs. Doctor (firstname.lastname@example.org), or check the media center website, if you have any questions. Attached you can find copies of some of the papers students were given, just in case ;-).
Each student in Mrs. Morgan and Mrs. Ewing’s classes contributed fleece for a service project. They spent their Valentine party tying colorful fleece blankets with parents and other family members. Reps from Bethany Children’s Services attended the party and accepted the blankets. They were then distributed to children who stay at Bethany or other foster homes throughout the local area.
