Junior Olympics

We had a fantastic time at Junior Olympics this year. The children participated in many different events. It was a beautiful day and the children had a great day together. Our class won the trophy for the relay! We were very pleased.


We grew Painted Lady Butterflies. We watched them go through each phase of metamorphosis. We learned that their tongue is like a straw. They drink sweet nectar from flowers. It was hard letting them go free! We sang our butterfly song before we let them go.


We walked around our school for thirty minutes to raise money for our school. It was wonderful exercise and we had a great time being together. After our walk, PTO treated us to icecream sandwiches!

Children's Museum

We had so much fun at the Children's museum. We were able to visit many different areas of the museum. The Science Works area was our all time favorite. We played in the rocks, water, mulch, and so much more. We like getting messy. It was fun wearing our new hornet t-shirts.
