March:

All grade levels are learning about careers.  5th grade took an interest inventory to see what Career Cluster their interest land in.  We are then using this website to research more about the Career Clusters: Career Clusters

3rd and 4th grade are working on a Career Research Project and doing research on one particular career.  When it’s done, they will have a 5 paragraph essay on the career they chose to research.

2nd grade learned about community helper careers and how anyone can do any job whether they are a boy or a girl.

November:

All classes are working hard on the poster contest for KUSD.  The slogan this year is: Be Drug Free? Absolutely!

All students are given the opportunity to complete the poster contest in the classroom and can enter the writing contest on their own.  Each classroom can also enter a group project- Mr. Bishop’s class won last year!

 

October:

October is Bully Prevention Month.  Each grade talked about the definition of bullying and how to tell when something is bullying or teasing.  We talked, as a group, about what to do if you are being bullied.

Second grade read a Julia Cook book called “Bully Beans” brought home that and a worksheet on how to help if they are bullied.

First grade received a special package from the Kind Kids Club.  They worked on filling out an application to be in the club.  They received their first mission as part of the club- to make thank you cards for Veterans who will be visiting our school for a Veterans Day Program.

September:

The first week I was in classrooms, I reviewed with students who I was and how I can help them.  For students in grades 3-5 who have been taught how to log into their Google accounts, I taught them how to request time with me.  This form can be found on the Counselor Request Form page, and it will email me that they are requesting time with me.
