What Mrs. Prokopec's Class Has Been Doing

Mrs. Prokopec's class began the second semester of school researching and writing about polar bears. Picking appropriate resources, note taking, and the process of writing an informative paper on a topic are just a few things that these second graders learned. They finished their project with a polar bear drawing and a display of their hard work!

Weather Reminder

Friendly reminder that as long as the temperature or wind chill is at or above 10 degrees the children will be going outside for recess.  Please make sure your kids have proper coats, hats and gloves.  If they have boots it is a good idea for them to bring them also.  If there is snow on the ground and they don't have boots they have to stay on the cement.  We want these kiddos to enjoy their time…

Mrs. Pospisil's Class Deciding Lamb or Lion

The first graders in Mrs. Pospisil’s class have been spending time discussing how the weather will be in March.

Students described lion weather to be stormy, cold, windy, and snowy. Students described lamb weather to be calm,…
