Ms. Roberts' Kindergarten class reading and writing during center time.


Mrs. Vicki Johnson’s sixth grade reading/language class, after reading the novel Hoot by Carl Hiaasan, completed research projects on endangered animals. The novel was about the burrowing owl, which is on the list of protected animals. Each student chose an animal to research from an abbreviated list of protected animals. Students had to write an essay describing the animal and telling about its status as a protected animal. The students also had to present a visual aid. Some students did PowerPoints, some did poster boards, and some did dioramas representing their animals. Mrs. Johnson’s students learned a lot about these animals and what makes them endangered.

They studied community helpers and read the story "Officer Buckle and Gloria".  Officer Doug Shephard and Shadow  came to visit and discuss the importance of having a K-9 Officer and the many jobs he performs.
