First graders from Miss VanHoose’s class paired up with preschoolers from Mrs. Mace’s class to read stories. It was great fluency practice for the first graders and fun for the preschoolers to hear a new story!

Our third graders have received our annual cabbage plants where students are encouraged to care for their plant to raise the largest cabbage possible as they learn about pl...
