Thursday Tidbits

Students are continuing their study on China or Africa. Students took the RI/MI test to test their skill and knowledge on the areas of reading and mathematics! Great job Wildcats!

To Africa, China, and Beyond!

Today, students learned about Africa, China, and map skills in Social Studies. Students are becoming country and map reading experts! I am excited to see their progress.
