Mrs. Reeder’s class has enjoyed a wonderful year in first grade. We have read many books, learned many new things and made great friends. We created a memory book to help us remember our first grade year. We are so excited for summer vacation, but are sad for our year together to come to a close. We hope each of you have a wonderful summer.
5th grade band students in the Forest Hill Cluster meet only once a week. So they actually performed the concert with roughly 30 days of instruction over the 2015-2016 school year! They did an amazing job for the limited classroom instruction, and this was also the first time they played together as a one group instead of 4 different schools! The highlight of the evening was the band “trading 2s” with Mr. McFadden jammin’ on the trumpet.
Third graders have been working on global studies. The continents we studied were Africa, Europe, and Asia. Students were put into groups and researched a country within one of the continents. They learned about the culture, food, school life, and how the people dress.
