    Fourth Graders Dance to “Everything is Awesome!”

    Mrs. Child and her nimble fourth graders performed to “Everything is Awesome!” during our Friday Finale.  A few weeks ago, Washington and Garfield students learned a dance from the Creative Arts Academy 6th graders to The Lego Movie song.  The lyric “Everything is awesome when you’re part of a TEAM” perfectly illustrates several of the lifeskills we have here at school.   Enjoy the video!

    As part of 3rd quarter curriculum, all third-graders will write a “How To” to paper.  They began this process this week at school as they watched Mrs. Potts and Mrs. Whalen instruct them in building gingerbread houses.  On Wednesday, the students watched both teachers as they built their own houses, and then the students were able to create their house.  Today, the exhilarated students, with the support of some awesome
