Arizona Day

On Tuesday, May 24th, fourth grade students participated in an all-day event celebrating Arizona’s history and culture. During this fun-filled day celebrating all things Arizona, students enjoyed Indian fry bread while listening to a Native American story, made play-doh cactus creations, learned about the 5 C’s of Arizona, celebrated our state’s birthday and much more! We had a great time reflecting on all the things we learned about Arizona this year!

Community Circle

Photo 1Fourth graders in Ms. Wade’s class enjoyed the beautiful weather and reflected on their school year together during Community Circle this week. Community Circle helps strengthen the bonds between students, and allows them to express their opinions and experiences while being treated with respect. Community Circle also gives students a chance to practice their listening, speaking, and interpersonal skills. Students shared their favorite moments from the year and their plans for summer vacation. It was a lot of fun!
