What a great day of celebration we had! Thank you to all the families for helping us celebrate reading!

Native American Study
We have completed Native American Study. We focused on learning about the Sioux Indians. Please check your child's blog to see what we have discovered.

Bank Midwest Trip
We were excited to visit Bank Midwest to receive their generous gift of $250.00 for the class of 2026. We also enjoyed taking a tour of bank and learn about different kinds of machines and services that the bank provide.
