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.
Sun Valley Elementary was thrilled to announced their Physical Education Teacher, Cole Hurst as their 2015-16 Teacher of the Year! Hurst has been in education since 2011, and is a graduate of Wingate University, NC with a BA in Physical Education. As a Union County native, he has been assigned to Sun Valley since he graduated college. He is married and lives in Union County.
