6th grade has been learning about the Renaissance time period and about Shakespeare in Social Studies. After practicing in small groups, each class put on their own versions of Hamlet, Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet. Students did an amazing and had a lot of fun. It was great to see them shine on stage.
For the last couple of weeks, as part of library time, students have been talking a lot about how words have power. They saw how a simple act of kindness can change someone's day and that how they treat each other makes a difference. In celebration of Random Acts of Kindness Day, each student K-6 was given a small heart and was asked to think of one positive or kind word or compliment they could think of to write on that heart. Then our older students grades 3-6 strung those hearts into confetti garland.
Tuesday, February 23rd will be Spring Picture day. There will be a flyer coming home this week. These picture packets will have to be ordered BEFORE picture day at mylifetouch.com and the picture ID is EVTSSKR9H.

Second graders had to use their knowledge of adaptations and habitats to discover which animals were hiding in boxes and bags based on clues. They had to guess an emu egg, ostrich egg, duck, rattle snake rattle, turtel shell and a shark in a jar.
Kinderarteners at Larsen have been learning about some of our national symbols. Today they painted their favorite symbols of the United States. Some of the favorites were the Statue of Liberty, the Washington Monument, the Liberty Bell and of course the American flag. Great job Mrs. Eckhardt's class!
