ART INSTALLATION ~ IN THE BOOKS

Starting March 1, you will start to see little treasures hidden in the Learning Commons.  Mrs. Rausch’s art students are creating very special weaving and hiding them in the shelves.  They have taken weeded and discarded books and turned them into looms.  They then used string, pipe cleaners and tissue paper to weave a three-dimensional art piece with a little bit of paper folding mixed in between.  We love showcasing student art in our Learning Commons!

HOW SHOULD WE SPEND PROFITS?

Would you like to help us spend the book fair profits? Our first and most important goal is to buy beautiful new books for the Lindsey Learning Commons. And you can help! Remember, everything you shop for provides us with a monetary profit that we will use to directly benefit your child!

She Died!

Poor Miss Floyd! In our discussion of historical fiction during one of our genrefication mini-lessons, we took a little trip back in time and played an online version of the original Oregon Trail.  Fifth grade teachers were on the wagon team going west. First, Mrs. Reid contracted measles. Then, Miss Floyd got sick with typhoid. As supplies ran down and water quality got worse and worse, everyone suffered. Just as Miss Floyd came to pick up her class, her virtual self died. We will mourn her passing, and so will she. ;0)
