Extended Day Enrichment

For the last four weeks students got to participate in Extended Day Enrichment (EDE). This is a extra program offered to our students from 11:30 -2:00pm each Thursday if they would like to join.  Students have done so many amazing things it is hard to fit everything in!
One week they talked about trees and what they need and how chlorophyll works.  Then this lead to a nature walk with collecting leaves and sorting them and and making patterns.  Another week was dedicated to monsters and counting their eyes and using shapes to create their own monsters.  The students also got to create a "fizzy monster head" by inflating balloons with a chemical reaction between vinegar and baking soda.  They also sorted skittles and painted with them. They carved pumpkins and made Halloween slime which is always a favorite by all.  Thank you so much to our two amazing EDE teachers Miss Carrie and Miss Simone.  The time and energy they put into this class is so evident by the kids faces when they coming running out of class to share all their new experiences with their parents. 

Sorting skittles by color and then later using them to create skittle paint!

FCCNS Students are Seeing Stars!

You know you are at a great school with great parents and teachers when you walk in and see this giant planetarium blown up! (top left corner picture)  The students got to enjoy watching and learning about stars in this portable planetarium from the Natural History Museum.  After looking at the stars they got to  go camping & cook over a "fire", make smores, and create their own outer space masterpiece.  To say it was a fun day is an understatement.  Thank you to our WONDERFUL enrichment committee for putting all of this together!

New Toys!

Who doesn't love new toys?! We recently got to purchase several new things for each of our classrooms thanks to all the money raised through fundraising.  Here are just some of the new items to look for in the classrooms!  We also purchased a Cricut paper cutter.  I personally didn't know much about these before hand but they create some of the coolest things.  We have dies to cut letters, numbers, dolls, clothing, animals, cars and trucks, and much more.
