News from the Elementary

Kindergarten…Mrs. Hoover

In kindergarten this week, we will continue to study our letters of the alphabet. We will focus on the letter and sound s. We will also continue to make some fall art. We will be working on our books of the Bible up through 2 Kings. Thanks so much to all the parents who helped with Applefest in any way! Thanks also to all of the students who donated books from the book fair to our classroom! I can't wait to share them with the class. Have a great week!

Grade 1…Mrs. Keele

Applefest was wonderful! Thanks to all who helped and came to support our school. We will begin studying about being good citizens in social studies. In math, we are continuing to practice our addition and subtraction facts. We will have a spelling test on Friday. Our reading stories this week are "What Did I See?" and "I Went Walking". Have a great week!

Grade 2…Mrs. Newby
Thanks to all our parents that made Applefest a big success. This week in social studies we will begin studying about our past. Next week, we will have Pioneer days in 2nd grade.

Grade 3…Ms. Farless

This week the third graders will be learning to spell homophones in spelling class. Don't forget to study these words. They can be difficult words to learn. On Tuesday, they will have a test over abbreviations in language class. The rest of the week they will be learning how to write singular and plural nouns. In math we will be subtracting. During science class, they will continue to watch our six caterpillars change. They are currently on their pupa stage of their life cycle. This week in Bible class we will be learning to recite Galatians 6:7. This Bible verse is about sowing and reaping. Finally, in social studies class this week we will be making salt dough landforms. That should be a lot of fun!

Grade 4…Mrs. Vandagriff

Thanks to everyone who came to support Applefest on Saturday. It was a huge success! Please remember our Bake Sale on Friday. We have had a lot of success with our sales, and we appreciate everyone for all of their help. The only tests we will have this week are in Reading and Spelling. We will have a Language test on Monday, October 6th. Have a wonderful week!!

Grade 5…Mr. Burks

Thanks to all the parents who helped make Applefest a success. If you have caps in good shape at home and would like to donate them, we will be giving them as gifts to the men at the nursing homes for Christmas. There will be a social studies test on Chapter 3 Friday.
