The third grade decided to clean up the K-2 and 3-5 playgrounds because they have become a “jacket graveyard.” The third grade is rotating weekly by class to clean up the playgrounds. The jackets will be taken to the lost and found so students can better locate their belongings and they cannot become disgusting, stolen, or forgotten. If students do not remember them after two or three weeks, the jackets will be donated to Goodwill. Students have learned to be more responsible!
First Grade’s Environmental Project for the 2015-2016 school year centered on our Social Studies and Science Curriculum. In Science (CCS 1.L.1.1. 1.G.1), we learned about how to recognize the needs of different animals and plants in their environments. The students learned that as a human, they must protect their environment from growth and change and/or improve conditions for the growth of the plants and animals that live there. This was done by recycling.
Fourth graders had a blast learning about trees and their importance to our lives. We met with the mayor of Indian Trail and his staff of tree initiative friends! Mayor Alvarez spoke to our students about the community’s tree canopy and the benefits associated with the community forest. This program was designed to coordinate with our fourth grade curriculum to help teach the importance of trees in our community. Not only did the fourth graders get to share their knowledge of trees but they also had the chance to help plant two trees on our playground! We learned the proper way to plant and care for a tree. To top off this wonderful experience all fourth graders took home a seedling to plant in their own yard!
