Please enjoy this glimpse into what our students have been learning and doing this week!

The first graders enjoyed seasonal watercolor painting and color exploration this week. They also modeled rabbits from clay. Happy Easter, Happy Spring!
The second graders performed their class play on Friday and had a blast bringing the story to life!
Third graders had their first violin class today. This marks their entry into the orchestra program.
The fourth graders enjoyed an exciting trip to Brookfield Zoo this week, bolstering their ongoing study of zoology. Most of the students were able to observe the specific animal they are researching for the big animal project they are currently undertaking. They had learned a lot, and had a great time in the process!
Physics is fun—and musical, too! The fifth and sixth graders learned that music can come from surprising places. Next up: the secret of light!
The 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders learned first-hand about beekeeping this week. They welcomed new bees and installed them in their new home! The queen travels in a separate box so she can be introduced to the colony with with care.
The seventh and eighth graders dyed Easter eggs with the residents of Liberty Arms during Service Learning this week.

The seventh and eighth graders completed their relief sculptures this week. These works of art were created by building up a thick layer of clay and then carefully removing clay in order to reveal the desired form. Look carefully and you may see names of the budding sculptors on the pieces! See students in the process of sculpting, here.
