Merry Christmas!!!!!

As we enter this Christmas season, we have been preparing for the Advent season by learning the story of the Candy Cane and how they tell the story of Christ.

In math we have been getting a glimpse into Algebra in math, in science we have learned about environments, food chains, food webs, and the part we play in changing the environment. We have been learning about how the colonies became states and what led to the American Revolutionary War. We have also begun working on Young Authors books.

I can’t believe that half the year is over and when we return in January, we will be on the downward slope of the year! You are very nearly parents of a middle schooler!

I hope you enjoy your Christmas break and some well deserved family time! I hope the children enjoy their well deserved break!!!!

The boys and girls had a wonderful time at the Thanksgiving Feast at school.  The boys and girls were allowed to eat lunch with their reading buddy that day.  This is a wonderful tradition celebrated at our school each year.  Thanks to everyone who helped make this day a great hit!

Hello Evangelical Families,

I  hope all are having a terrific year thus far! I know I am! This month the kids are getting excited to create new things using the computer lab! Each grade is set to learn a new way to publish.

Kindergarten students are learning about computer parts and what each part does. The students will also be working in paint and how to print their final product.

1st grade is reviewing computer parts, creating/printing items they have created in paint, and working on their typing skills.

2nd grade is learning document creation using Microsoft Word. The students will also be learning how to utilize the basic tools in Paint.

3rd-5th grade will be learning how to create and publish a brochure using Microsoft Word.
