ESL Classes for Adults

The adult ESL class is on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 12:45-2:20 pm in Room 1.

 

The classes are free and open to any adults.  They can register in class on the first day.  The classes are flexible in that they are not required to attend class on both days if they are not able to.  Also, some parents aren’t able to stay the entire class period, and that is OK.  Children are allowed as long as they don’t become too disruptive.

WESTWARD HO!

Fifth grade students from Mr. Gathing, Mr. Phung, and Mr. Schmiegel's classrooms participated in Conestoga Wagon races, vicariously traveling across the Overland Trails of the Old West in the hope of creating better lives for themselves.  The activity integrated many classroom core subjects and motivated all students to do their best.  Most student-made wagons reached their intended destinations west and for those few students that did not make it to the trails' end, they faced poverty, illness, and starvation with both courage and grace.
