Beginning in October, Mrs. Gratiot's 4th grade class and Mrs. Mead's 5th grade class participated in a "Food Truck Challenge" in Health class. The challenge was to create a viable food truck business with a nutritionally sound menu. We studied "My Plate" to learn about eating balanced and nutritious meals and studied food truck businesses; from creating a business plan to picking a truck design and a menu. All the kids did such a great job and got really creative with their ideas! What a great way to end the year!

The Ranger TECH Construction class hammered out a trailer re-decking project for a local contractor this week. The existing wood deck was nasty. These young men demonstrated exemplary work ethic, problem solving skills and attention to detail while on this project. As their construction teacher, I could not be more proud. - Leona Egeland

Mrs. Gratiot's 4th grade class is ending the year focusing on integrating information from two texts on the same topic. They read two articles about space and then completed a graphic organizer about the similarities and differences between the texts. Next, we wrote about the similarities using a cooperative strip paragraph in a pocket chart as a class. Finally, students are collaborating to write a paragraph in their own small pocket charts about the differences between the two articles. What a great amount of collaboration at the end of the school year!

The saying goes that "Rome wasn't built in a day", but the 3rd Graders decided to give it a try anyway! To wrap up a unit about ancient Roman civilization, students recreated famous architecture! They explained why the structure was important to ancient Romans, listed specific elements of the architecture that kept it from becoming ruins, and then sketched a plan. Their models are made from packing peanuts and represent the Colosseum, Pantheon, and an aqueduct!
