Buddies Working Together


It’s always better to work with a partner. In Mrs. Gerardi’s and Mrs. Saunders’ classes that is what happens. Each year students are assigned a “buddy” from a different grade. The students get together several times throughout the year (about once a month) to do a project with their buddies.  They write letters/cards to each other, do an Oreo science investigation activity, work on crafts and other various activities throughout the year.  The activity pictured below was to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday.  The students read Dr. Seuss books with their buddy, cut out the letters in the title “Cat in the Hat” and had a competition to see who could make the most words, and then created a Thing 1 and Thing 2 art activity using theirs and their buddy’s hand prints. Working together makes learning fun!

5th & 6th Grade Field Trip


After all of the testing that had to be done this year, sometime it’s nice to let the kids unwind a little. Recently, our 5th and 6th graders went on a field trip to relax from all the testing they went through. It was a day filled with bowling, hiking at Alley Park, and lunch at Golden Corral. Thanks to the PTO and Mr. Templin, the kids had a great day! Below are a few of the pictures from the trip.
