Spotlight on the Arts
The 7th grade students just finished up their Faux Stained Glass challenge. This is a collaborative work utilizing math and art. The pieces look wonderful hanging in a window!!
Middle School Puppy Party
Last Friday, May 18th, Coastal Pet Rescue brought several puppies and adult dogs to ease the stress of impending Middle School exams. The students had a blast unwinding and playing with the sweet dogs. As a thank you the students made dog toys out of old t-shirts to send back to the shelter!
Guidance counselor Anne Pedrick brought her puppy, Teddy, to join the party!

Eighth Grade Spotlight
Today 8th graders chose to spend their last PE class playing kickball with the kindergartners in the gym during the same period. We love seeing our students interact in such a sweet and enthusiastic way!
Kindergarten gets Prehistoric
Mrs. Morgan’s kindergarten class has been studying dinosaurs! Naturally, they had to take a trip to Jurassic World. All students assumed the role of paleontologists and had to complete tasks to exit the park safely. We are happy to report that they all made it!
