First Grade has been learning a lot about animals this year! In preparation for our big Sea World field trip our Next Generation Scientists in Room 9 put together some digital stories to showcase some of the interesting attributes, traits, and habits of whales that they have learned. Today we had an opportunity to present to our administrators and faculty. The students are so grateful for them taking the time to come by and seen all we've been learning. We are SO PROUD of the wonderful work these Firsties have accomplished!
McCabe and Corfman staff and students donned their favorite super hero shirts on May 5th to celebrate Cafeteria Lady Appreciation Day. We truly appreciate the love and hard work put into our daily lunches!!
Corfman's 4th grade classes assisted McCabe's maintenance crew in planting trees around campus to celebrate Arbor Day.
Arbor Day is a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant trees. Today, many countries observe such a holiday. Though usually observed in the spring, the date varies, depending on climate and suitable planting season.
McCabe's 1st grade students headed over the hill this morning to take a look at the external parts of organisms, sea life, and how animals use their body parts in different ways to see, hear, grasp objects, protect themselves, move, and find food, water, and air based on the Next Generation Science Standards for 1st Grade. What a exciting and educational day they had!
