Rickard's Kindergarten and 4th Grade classes worked together to decorate gingerbread houses on Tuesday. The students frosted and placed a multitude of decorations onto their houses and created wintry scenes complete with teddy graham snow angels and Santa's. And no gingerbread decorating would be complete without sneaking in a few treats to taste! 🍬🍭

An anonymous elf sent us some pictures of their busy night. It looks like they were up to some shenanigans involving Mr. Klassen and his office. Pictures of his face were plastered all over the school, and all of his office supplies were wrapped in holiday wrapping paper. An investigation is under way to determine which elves were involved! So far, there are no leads!

This week in library, our 2nd-4th graders were busy working with our Strawbees. Strawbees are a durable and sustainable STEM activity/tool that allows them to engineer and build various models. Students used an online, step-by-step video with their partner to collaboratively construct their final product. This week, we built a mechanical arm that could pick up a weighted present. Our objective was to take away the present from our Grinch, and deliver them to Ms. Lorenz or Ms. Michelson! The students learned and practiced essential skills such as collaboration, time management, and creative processing.
