The 1st Grade celebrated Thanksgiving by performing ‘Twas the Day Before Thanksgiving written by Dav Pilkey on stage for their families. After the show, a delicious feast was enjoyed by all. Congratulations on an awesome performance!
The Pre-K 3 is getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving by making our Pilgrim and Native American hats/headbands! They will wear these during our Thanksgiving Feast where students have chosen foods to bring in and share with the class. We have also been talking about all the wonderful things God has provided for us and how thankful we are for all of it!
Third grade is partnering with the sixth grade to work on reading fluency. Students enjoy collaborating with one another.
Students in Grades 1-8 had the opportunity to exercise their right to vote on Tuesday in a mock presidential election. Thank you to SMP’s 5th Grade Girl Scout Troop 5133 for making this event possible for the students. Leading up to Election Day, the rights and responsibilities of voting were discussed, along with the candidates’ platforms.
The 8th Grade hosted the 1st and 2nd Graders at a Spooky Stations event. With their 8th Grade buddies, students created bat hats, estimated the circumference of the big pumpkin, identified the setting in a spooky stories, and graphed some of their favorite candy. Our spooky session ended with a pass the pumpkin game. Students had a blast listening to Halloween themed music and expressing themselves. Thank you to Ms. Corsetto's Literature class for creating such a fun event!
Hello everyone. My name is Ms. Dailey, the art teacher for grades PK-8th grade. The year started out with a Noah's Ark project where all grades drew an animal representing "working together" in the art room.
Afterwards, the students started working on line and design related artwork. Preschool students did a beautiful clay and pipe cleaner project that looks fabulous by the window sills. They also did leaf rubbings, scratch art practice, and beautiful shaving cream art! Kindergarten has been working on a "line rug" which has the colors of the rainbow with different types of lines cut in as a design. First grade worked on "Birds and Rockets" with all kinds of lines flying from the objects. Second grade did their fun "Crazy Hair" project and as a bonus, worked on leaves made from glue. 3rd grade is finishing up "Line in Motion" where they created a design that was then cut out to look like moving lines. Fourth grade created 3D hands using the illusion of line to make the hand look like it's coming out of the page. Fifth grade is finishing up their design pinwheels. Sixth grade is finishing up their design cubes, and seventh and eighth grade are working on paper quiling projects.
For Halloween, grades that have finished early got a chance to work on paper plate masks for the holiday! Their next projects will start to incorporate basic color theory with more design elements.
