The 3rd grade class put together a business plan and ran their "Sundae Fundae" business this winter, earning $1,296.25 in net profit.  They chose to send their profit to the Bee Informed Partnership, which helps sustain honeybees across the country.  See the great Zoom Video from the Bee Informed Partnership with their appreciation and "Thank You" to the class!

The 5th graders became immigrants passing through Ellis Island in a recent classroom simulation.  See photo galleries of them in costume trying to Become Americans, a gallery of them in old fashioned Sepia Tones, and one of their parents playing the role of Immigration Officials as their students experienced what it was like to be an immigrant in 1905.

Our 4th and 5th grade Math Is Cool teams have diligently worked solving math problems after school for the past couple of months.  All their efforts paid off as the teams competed in the regional competition on Feb. 28 at Mt. Spokane High School.  The fourth-grade team took 1st place in their division, with the top individual awards going to Eshan Reddy (1st place), Keagan Wilson (4th place), and Donovan Bradford (5th place).  The fifth-grade MIC team placed 2nd in their division with individual awards going to Taylor Teague (1st place), Adam Ling (3rd place), and Bella Buckner (4th place).  A big thank you to the fifth-grade coaches Sam Wyss and assistant Marshall Roll and to the fourth-grade coach Kristie Slattengren.
