A message from Mrs. Kylee Redford regarding Camp Invention: Just like this very full bulletin board (thanks Mrs. Lightle for the help), all of the Camp Invention scholarship spots are filled. We have record numbers and unfortunately funding for scholarships has run out. Families can now choose to pay full price or get put on a scholarship wait list in case more funding can be secured. Thank you to all the families for showing such interest. We look forward to a great week at camp June 7-11!!!
Mrs. Amanda Johnson’s 3rd graders at Blackford Intermediate School put their knowledge of fact and opinion to the test - while also practicing their throwing skills! “Students read various examples of facts and opinions, and had to identify the difference between the two. They also had to provide examples of both on specific topics, such as pizza, Australia and soccer! In order to get a new card, they had to play the carnival game Tin Can Toss in teams, cheering each other on and knocking over as many cans as possible. I loved the teamwork and encouragement I saw - it was a fun way for them to show their understanding of facts and opinions while also being active!” Way to go, Bears!
We're looking for a few good campers for some summertime learning and fun!
The third graders in Mrs. Penny’s Class have been working like construction workers creating, fixing, and renovating writing all week. They have been working on skills that they will need to make their writing even better. They have really enjoyed working together to make their writing better. Way to go Bears!
