Second Grade Studies Sound
The second graders in Mrs. Stoner's class just finished studying about Sound. The students learned how sound is made through vibrations. They also learned about volume and pitch. To end the unit, they created fantastic instruments! There were drums, violins, and guitars, to name a few. They performed with their instruments and the song "Happy" during our recent Writing and Science Celebration. They had so much fun! The class also wrote a "How-To" make an instrument integrating Writing and Science.
We also went to the Fred Ingold Musical Festival at Marvin Ridge High School. At the festival we got to hear the band and a string ensemble. Instruments of varying volume and pitch were explained and demonstrated. Our music teacher, Mrs. Adcox, planned this event.
Successful Food Drive for Union County Community Shelter
Thanks to the generosity of our school community, we were able to collect 2,462 items for the Union County Community Shelter's Hope Food Pantry. Mrs. Minick's fourth grade class alone collected 182 critically-needed items, and took the top spot in this category among all 30 homerooms. The week included educational and hands-on learning opportunities for our students.Full Story
