October in Upper El

We have a very eventful October in Upper Elementary!

Dr. Guy Harvey came into the class and talked to us about the endangered Nassau Grouper.

The Grade Sixes hosted the October Assembly and did skits on respecting others, self and environment.

The Upper El class was invited to do “Kids C.A.R.E” two groups on Tuesday and two groups on Thursday. They went to the Humane Society and are going to the Pines Retirement Home in November.

The Grade Fives and Sixes practiced their measurement by baking delicious cookies, a brownie pizza and a smore pie.
