PRIMARY PERFORMERS
First and second graders did an exceptional job Thursday evening in their primary performance. They shared several songs and dances that promoted diversity and celebrated differences. They also displayed artwork that reflected the theme of acceptance. Students' art was modeled after several picture books read in class. This performance allowed our students to demonstrate what they have learned in the specials areas and convey an essential message. We are proud of students' enthusiasm and talent, and we thank Mrs. Warner, Mrs. Petty and Ms. Dazzio for making the event possible.

LEARNING FROM EXPERTS
Channel 7 Meteorologist, Mike Nelson, presented to second and fifth graders on Tuesday. In a highly entertaining presentation Nelson explained how different types of severe weather form. Students enjoyed expanding their background knowledge about their current science topic by listening to an expert in the field. Students were given the opportunity to simulate how weather forms and ask several questions. We thank Mr. Nelson for sharing his experience and knowledge with our school community!

PRINCIPAL FOR THE DAY
Fourth grade student, Kylan Ellis, had the opportunity to serve as Principal for the Day. Principal for the Day is a standing auction item the Fall Western Night. Kylan was excited to visit classrooms, complete a variety of supervisory duties and read the morning announcements. Read Kylan's top 5 Gold Rush celebrations below.
