Math Stars

Congratulations to the following 3rd grade students for making it to the top  in their Math Facts.  We are very proud of you and the hard work you have done to master your math facts!

Instructional Model

Teachers across the district (PreK-12th grade) are discussing the AdvancED recommendations of developing an instructional model.  We have chosen the Charlotte Danielson Model of instruction.  We will discuss the rationale for this choice along with the Big Picture of this model including the 4 domains and their 22 elements,the Essential 8, and how this ties in with the Nebraska Frameworks.

Endangered Species

CHS students shared their Endangered Species Projects they have been working on.  They shared with 3rd and 4th grade students during library time.  In 4th grade, we do our own research on endangered species so this will give our 3rd grade students some great ideas for next year.  
Thank you CHS for teaching us about Endangered Species! Out of 63,000 species of animals and plants surveyed, more than 19,000 could become extinct!

Brush Up Day

Jenelle Hansen from Panhandle Public Health discussed taking care of our teeth. Mr. Dirty Mouth forgot to brush!
Kids were given a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a timer to remember how long to brush.

Third Quarter in Review

Third quarter was a busy one in fourth grade.  Students prepared for and took the statewide writing test. Mrs, Swinney talked to them about NASA and helped them build and launch their own rockets.  Mr. Horst had them skyping with a class in Texas.  Flat Stanley, a character from a book by the same name, came to visit.  He belonged to Mrs. Piercy's nephew from Illinois.  He "helped" students take a math test. 

Rocket Math!

Congratulations to Kolby Denke and Marlee Pinnt!  You have "rocketed" through their subtraction facts and made it to the Milky Way!

What is the Weather Like Outside?

Students discussed the weather with Chris Fankhauser recently.  As a self-proclaimed "Weather Nerd", she helped explain some of the "Terminology"  used in her job with 3rd grade students.  We are enjoying the current weather and hope to do without any more freezing cold.  Thanks Chris for visiting our classroom!

Paleontologist visits

Mrs. Hoffman's ClassroomWe have been studying rocks and fossils and last week we were lucky to have a visit from Barb Beasley, a paleontologist from the Forest Service, visit us and bring samples of fossils.  She talked to us about fossils and showed us samples of fossils found at Toadstool Park and other places.  She taught us about invertebrates, vertebrates, and plants that can be found in fossil form.  She showed us a model of a giant pig's skull that lived in this area millions of years ago.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Students & Parents
