One “CHEESY” Field Trip! 2nd Grade students just took an amazing field trip to Marcoot Jersey Creamery! There students were able to see how the cows were milked in their new robotics barn. We also saw how they turned the milk into cheese. They even let us taste some curds! One of the favorite parts for many of the students was seeing the baby calves!! A few were just born less than a month ago!!! So cute! Finally we were treated with some of Marcoot’s famous tasty ice cream!!

2nd Grade Magic of Reading Day! Students were treated to an awesome and educational journey today! Based on the book series Magic Tree House, each teacher gave a 35 minute presentation to learn more about various topics covered in a few of the books. Students rotated classrooms all day to learn about the Amazon Rain Forest, Magic, tornados, The Titanic, Civil War, China, and the First Olympics! Thank you teachers for the hard work and preparation that went into this magical day for students!

Miss McCune’s class has been studying how animals’ bodies help them survive in nature. They did an experiment where they discovered why birds have different beaks. Ducks have wider beaks to help them scoop food. Warblers have pointy beaks to help them be precise when getting their food on the ground, avoiding unwanted objects like rocks. 🦆🐦🦅

Girl Scout Troop 80 is encouraging students to become engineers. They put together a variety of STEM bags with the needed supplies and directions in brown lunch bags. Students in Mrs. Laird’s class were very excited to try out these STEM projects. They worked in small groups to choose a project and make it. Students had to create balloon rockets, shelters, and musical instruments to name a few. They had a lot of fun with this hands-on learning! Thank you Girl Scout Troop 80!

Students have the choice of using balance balls, wiggle seats, yoga mats, cushions with flex bands for their feet, or standing. Allowing students to choose where they are most comfortable learning helps them stay focused throughout the day. Flexible seating allows for a variety of room arrangements and students really enjoy having choice! --
