5th Grade Celebration
Dr. Houlihan launches Listening and Learning Tour As part of his 90-day entry plan, Dr. Houlihan is launching a Listening and Learning Tour. Beginning Sept. 21, the Superintendent will hold a series of meetings throughout Union County to meet with employees and community members.
3rd graders, Kaitlyn Fournier, Kara Nowocin and Lexi Smith – The Care Bears, Girls That Give Back, recently raised an additional 450 pounds of food during the Sun Valley Food Drive. That brings their total this year to over 2500 pounds of food for families in Union County. That amount alone will feed over 250 families. Kaitlyn said she loves being able to help those less fortunate. It puts a smile on her face knowing that they are able to feed someone that might not have a meal otherwise.
“Hey! Look at my roots!” “My stem is crooked.” “Wow, my leaves are uncurling.” These are all comments heard during first grade science lessons at Sun Valley Elementary School. Weeks ago each first grader was given one lima bean seed. These seeds were placed in a terrarium to germinate and placed in the sun. As they developed, the students watched the seed sprout and develop roots, stems, and leaves. Recently these developing plants were placed in dirt. Students will continue to watch the development of these plants while they discuss the parts of a plant. This “hands on” lesson brings science to life.
