5th Grade Escapes The Body Systems

Our 5th grade students participated in a body system escape room.  They worked as a group to find questions through out the room that they then answered about the different body systems. This was a culminating activity for their science unit. Then they use a code breaker to solve the code to break out.

Career Day for our 3rd--5th graders.

Thank you to all the wonderful community business leaders who took time out of their day to come share with our students about their careers.  They talked about what the job was like, what type of training or educations they needed and what they loved about their job.
