PreK has been learning all about Thanksgiving this week and what it means to be thankful. We also made Thanksgiving cards for the residents of Central Baptist Village.

Sixth graders created a city using three-dimensional shapes including prisms and pyramids, as an extension to their study of surface area. Students working from home dropped off their creations to make our class neighborhood complete.

Students starting another exciting day in the fifth grade! We often start off with some “Morning Work” which often starts off with a riddle, a word search, or some quick thinking math—something to get the brain firing off in the right direction.

Fourth grade has been busy learning about Veterans, what Veteran’s Day commemorates, and how we recognize and celebrate them. The students created their own acrostic poems about Veterans. We are ready and look forward to all that we still have to learn this year!
