The 5th graders formally "crossed the bridge" to the Middle School and celebrated the end of their time in the Lower School on June 1.  See a big Photo Gallery of them crossing the bridge to the applause of the rest of the Lower and Middle School students, as well as class and candid photos on the bridge afterwards...

The 5th grade spent several days in late May learning about people and events around central Montana -- The Charlie Russell Museum, Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, the Missouri River and Gates Dam, First People's State Park's Buffalo Jump, a boat ride through the Gates of the Mountains, and practicing Native American tools at Missouri Headwaters State Park.  See a Photo Gallery of the class in Montana.  Thanks to Sherry Shoemaker for the nice group photos!

The Kindergarten students raised butterflies in their classroom, decorated their own "wings" in art, and then released their butterflies on Graduation Lawn on May 16, 2018.  See a Video and a Photo Gallery of their eventful day.  How cute is that?!

Congratulations to the 5th grade Math Is Cool team, who competed in Moses Lake at the State Masters competition this past Saturday, May 19.  Team members are Rohan Dhillon, Gabe Law, Ian Rizvi, and Ian Reichel.  "They did not place in the competition," says coach Sherry Shoemaker, "but they were in the top 'i' division, which is the hardest group to be in."  Sherry spent the day at the competition correcting math papers and working with the state organizers.  Go Dragons!

Famous artists never looked so good!  The 5th graders culminated their study of great 19th and 20th century artists with their own exhibition (in character) of paintings by each artist in the Davenport House on March 27.  "They worked so hard in art class," says LS librarian Dianne Douthitt, "with Jennifer replicating paintings and with me in the library researching artists and making scrapbooks!  I am so proud of these artists and scholars!  Well done!"  See a Photo Gallery of all the artists with their paintings at the exhibit...
