Mrs. Dales Class Celebrates Johnny Appleseed's Birthday!

September 26th was Johnny Appleseed's birthday and the TK class had a blast celebrating. They learned about different types of apples and the legend of Johnny Appleseed. They were able to taste apples, paint with apples and we even made an apple volcano! TK had such a great day of learning! Please click above to enjoy some fun photos of the class.

Mrs. Krueger's Class Create Their Own Solar Ovens!

Mrs. Krueger's Class has been studying forms of energy, investigating how light reflects, and learning about colored light, including how it is absorbed or reflected. Over the last week kids have designed their own solar ovens using what they learned in our energy and light unit. At the end of September, they tried the ovens for the first time with eggless chocolate chip cookie dough. Based on the cookie outcome, they made changes to the original designs and tried again. They varied the materials used, including insulation for their cooking boxes, color used for the inside of the boxes, reflective surfaces, or thickness/air tightness of their clear coverings. The cookies were fabulous and applying knowledge was lots of fun.

Placer Cross Country LBAL Championships and Hansen's Challenge!

125 runners toed the line along Hansen Road of which 94 of these were returning racers, having run the practice Hansen's previously. Although it was a cool 72 degrees, the race was anything but lukewarm. It was most likely one of the most successful (in terms of improvement) that has ever occurred on campus. Everyone that started the race, finished. Records were broken, there was cheering and smiling faces at the Finish line. There was even a Mom and Dad Division of 15 Runners. Please click above to enjoy some fun photos of the season.

State Park Rangers Visit TK Class!

Our TK Class (Mrs. Dales) had special visitors last week. Some local State Park Rangers from Folsom Lake came and talked to our class about being kind to the environment and how to be good citizens at our local lakes. The kids favorite part was being able to explore in the patrol vehicles and hearing the sirens. Many of the children exclaimed that they want to be a Park Ranger when they grow up!
