We want to send a BIG THANK YOU out to all our families that came out to our Preschool and Early Childhood Family Education Gingerbread House Event! We had 36 ECFE and preschool children attend. Children brought parents, grandparents, and other adult "helpers" to assist in making their gingerbread houses. Each child had the experience of making a one-of-a-kind gingerbread house and families had the opportunity to continue or begin a fun holiday tradition. Each child chose a book to take home to read with his/her family. Our Early Childhood Family Education and preschool staff would like to recognize that parents are a child's first and most important teachers. We aim to support parents and families educationally through classes and parenting education as they raise the next generation. Again, thank you to all of our families for attending and our ECFE and preschool staff for making it a successful and fun evening for all!------------------- Just a few reminders for the next couple weeks as we head into Winter Break. 💰 Penny Wars is currently going on and will end on Friday, December 16th.

Our gifted and talented teacher, Mrs. Ellefson, has been busy engaging the fifth grade students with some fun learning. 😁 Her CSI students who have been meeting weekly are currently solving a crime. They are using forensic science, inductive and deductive reasoning to analyze a crime scene and determine who did the crime. They will distinguish evidence from inference while using scientific methods such as fingerprint and footprint comparisons, DNA comparisons, chromatography, pH testing, and powder and thread comparison testing to solve a crime. Last week, Mrs. Ellefson, read the story “The Invisible Boy,” by Trudy Ludwig, to the fifth graders. The story centers around a new student, Justin, who is struggling to be accepted until another classmate, Brian, comments that his lunch of "Bulgogi (Korean BBQ steak) looks delicious. Our 5th graders learned through this story how small acts of kindness can help everyone feel included. After finishing the story Mrs. Ellefson demonstrated how to make bulgogi. The students were excited to learn how to use chopsticks while sampling the dish! They loved Bulgogi!
