WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE CLASSROOM?
The preschoolers at Dysart Elementary have been busy since the beginning of the year. We have been working on learning the classroom rules, routines, and procedures. We have also been busy learning about ourselves and our families. We worked together with our families to create All About Me Posters! They look great hanging in our classrooms! We are looking forward to learning more about our pets, friends, and community helpers!
Due to the warm weather, Dysart PE students have been exercising indoors. The K-Grade 4 students are working on moving in a variety of ways (skip, gallop, jog, etc.) while maintaining personal space. We are also working on throwing and catching a variety of objects.
Grade 5-8 are working on assessing themselves using the Fitnessgram data. They are using this data to write personal fitness goals, and then a plan of action they can implement to meet these fitness goals.
8th grade is off to a great start this year! Students completed their first science lab experiment and thoroughly enjoyed it! Our 8th graders are progressing through the first math unit, Working with Exponents, and will be wrapping up exponent work this week. They have begun using Achieve 3000 and TenMarks computer programs in class and love all the technology work. Our first parent end-of-year activity planning meeting will be on Tuesday, September 6th at 5:30 p.m. in the school library. Hope to see you all there!
Reminder: Please encourage your students to log on to the grade book and stay proactive in monitoring success in each class.
We were excited to see Mr. Kelley the first week of school and get to know our Assistant Principal. He talked to us about being safe after school!
