During the weeks of September 10-14 and September 17-21, we will be taking the ITBS achievement tests. It is very important that all students arrive on time to school, have a good breakfast, and a good night's sleep. This will help each person to do their best. Thanks.

In worship we are studying a Peacemaker unit that will help us learn how to reslove conflict in better ways. Every other week the students learn a memory verse that supports what we are studying in the unit. We want to be Peacemakers.

FYI:
In  class this year we will be learning about the Olympics and we will have our own mini Olympics. We will also be studying the U.S. government and how it works. In Nov. we will hold a school wide election for the president of the United States. It will be interesting to see if the outcome of our country's election matches the outcome of our school election!
In science, we will study animals and go on a field trip to the Hollywild Zoo in Inman, S.C. This is a great trip that will be lots of fun!There will be many other fun units and exciting things to learn, including making volcanoes and growing plants.


We have just finished studying about the hostory,symbols, and traditions of the Olympics. As a culminating activity, the students were divided into groups and each group chose a different country to research. They made a banner and flag for their country as well as finding out information. In class they shared their written reports and we listened to the national anthem of their country. Last of all, we had a parade of nations out to the track and we put on a mini-Olympics. The rest of the school came and cheered as each country marched into the area. Mr. Janetzko demonstrated the shot put and the discus throw. It was an exciting time for all.
