Good afternoon! We are already planning for fall activities and need information to plan for coaches and transportation. If you have a daughter going into 4th, 5th, or 6th grade in the fall, please text Mrs. Schlafmann at 757-651-9230 if they plan on playing elementary girls' basketball. Once we know how many 5th and 6th graders we have playing we will determine what will happen with 4th graders. Practice will begin August 23rd after school. If you are interested in coaching, please let me know. Thank you and have a great summer!

Today 3rd grade had a “4th Grade Field Trip”😀. 3rd grade prepared questions for the 4th grade experts and each 4 grader prepared “4th Grade Survival List” of dos and don’ts. We paired up with a 4th grade partner and got busy learning all the things!! We saw lockers and their year’s binders!  Mrs. Lelm read her survival guide list and showed us some 4th grade math.  It was fun and informative and I have 18 kiddos who can’t wait for 4th grade!   Ask your student about one of Mrs. Lelm’s items on her Survival Guide and what kind of math problem she showed us on the board!!

The 6th graders made solar art! They first drew a design on clear scratch paper before placing it on top of nature print paper. The Sun’s UV light rays transferred their design on the clear scratch paper to the nature print paper!
