In conjunction with our school Science Fair on Wednesday, January 29, the students and faculty enjoyed a reptile assembly.  The students were entertained as well as educated.  There were several screams, lots of laughter, and many smiles.  They enjoyed seeing a tarantula, a scorpion, lizards, tortoises, an alligator, snakes and a giant python.  The learned to respect these animals as some of them are very dangerous.  They learned about the different habitats and foods these reptiles eat.  At the end of the assembly they were even able to touch the giant python.  This was the highlight of the event for many students

Everyone knows Nichol Lyman is an amazing Kindergarten teacher.  As these timid …..and many times scared little students enter her room at the beginning of each year, she is patient, kind and loves each one of them.  It is always her goal to make their 1st year of school a very positive experience.  She is extremely organized, has lots of energy and runs an orderly but fun classroom.  But more than that, Nichol always knows what each of her students need and makes sure they get the help, attention, and interventions they need to succeed.  As students advance through the grades….they  always come back to say “hi” to Mrs. Lyman…..in fact, she is so popular with the students, she seems to always wins the ugly Christmas sweater contest with the students votes.

Nichol is an amazing mentor and very patient with the new teachers and interns that she seems to get assigned to every year.  We love Nichol and we are so grateful and lucky to teach on the Kindergarten team with her.  Congratulations Nichol!!

The fifth-grade students enjoyed an array of science experiments today as part of their science unit.  They learned about chemical reactions by mixing things together such as Diet Coke and Mentos.  To end the day they made ice cream in baggies and enjoyed eating it.
