Woodworking Is Rocking for Third Grade!

This week, third graders adding the finishing touches on their rocking people. This unique and fun construction helps to introduce students to using coping saws for making curved cuts and demanded slightly more complexity in its building than previous projects. Students, of course, also gave each rocking person a colorful paint job! The rocking people start rocking and will rock all night long with their new third grade friends until bedtime.

Special Visitor Drops By Second Grade Music Class

Second graders were treated to a visit from our wonderful wind ensemble director, Mr. Kristian Baverstam! The students had a glorious time learning about the music that wind instruments like the clarinet can make. Mr. Baverstam showed them the different pieces of the clarinet that come together to create its unique sound. A few students volunteered to try out the new instrument, and were coached through making elementary sounds by Mr. Baverstam, with lots of support from their classmates! Thank you to Mr. Baverstam for visiting and sharing your music with us!
