All of the Lower School celebrated 2021 Seconds of Reading on Jan. 8 by dressing in their pajamas and bringing their favorite books and stuffed animals to class. Unlike past years, the reading was done in their classrooms or from their homes. Some of the teachers and students also read books to their Distance Learning classmates who are at home. See photo galleries of the Kindergarten Readers, the 1st Grade Readers, the 2nd Grade Readers, the 3rd Grade Readers, the 4th Grade Readers, and the 5th Grade Readers!
The 2nd graders have been learning about owls. So when Biology teacher Seth Coleman discovered a Great Horned Owl that had died after getting caught in the baseball outfield net, the class came to the Bio Lab to check it out. See a Photo Gallery of the students examining how a real owl's feathers, claws, eyes and ears make it such a successful hunter.
4th grade teachers Rick Petrini and Heidi Melville have set up math exploratory time in their classroom. For example, the students might receive random Lego pieces and use those to demonstrate the math vocabulary they are learning in any way they choose. See a Photo Gallery of some of their Lego math vocabulary that also displays the IB attributes of being knowledgeable, a thinker and a risk-taker.
