This week Mrs. McTeer's and Ms. Clark's prekindergarten class practiced writing letters, learning their letter sounds, recognizing sight words, and are learning about three-dimensional figures such as spheres, cubes, and pyramids.
They are also learning about the impact of their words and the importance of kindness.  The letter this week is A for Astronaut, Angel and Alligator!
Mrs. Rocco’s kindergarten students sent letters to children in Mexico as part of their FLEx project.  She received this response from their teacher, “Yesterday I delivered the letters to my 2nd and 3rd kindergarten students.  They were very happy to know that children who are far from us wrote them a letter and that they have prayed for them. I showed them on a map where Oregon is, and they were amazed to see how far away the children were who prayed for them." How wonderful is it that our kindergarten students are making an impact on children in another country!
Mrs. Cokenour's kindergarten/1st-grade class celebrated the 100th day of school by bringing 100 items from home to use during math! They counted their items, sorted them into groups of 5s and 10s, and practiced different ways to count up to 100. On Dr. Seuss's birthday, they made their own hats just like the Cat in the Hat as Mrs. Cokenour read fun Dr. Suess books to them! 
Mrs. Cokenour’s and Mrs. Moore’s class got to enjoy a fantastic class on fossils presented by Mrs. Hannay! They learned about all the evidence that points to our amazing Creator! Then they got to create their own “fossils” with Play-Doh! 
Mrs. Moore’s first graders have been studying rocks and minerals! They created their own crystal garden and got to practice observing and recording changes. They also tested rocks for different minerals using magnets and vinegar! In phonics, they had a great time practicing skills with different mediums….like shaving cream! They also recently celebrated the 100th day of school with fun challenges including spelling 100 words, designing and imagining themselves as a 100 year old, and building creations with 100 cups!
First grade shared their "Frog and Toad" production with family and friends this morning.  Here's a little clip from their sledding adventure.
Mrs. Poe's 2nd grade class is studying Antarctica and the emperor penguin. They learned that as the parents the penguin's need to go and find food so they take turns leaving the egg. They will transfer the egg to their partner's feet so it can be warm in their brood pouch. The students practiced transferring an egg (tennis ball). The experiment was fun but hard too. Their reflection after they finished was, "It would have been easier with hands."

They are also reading a book called Growing Up in Early America. Mrs. Poe had some parents and friends to help us make yarn dolls. That was a very fun adventure for kids and adults too.

One of our favorite sayings is, “Readers are Leaders.” Our deep hope in the fourth grade is to extend God’s love to CCS. Our fourth grade class included the fifth grade class in our reading contest titled, “The Road to Reading Success.” The goal was to read 1000 minutes in two weeks. In less than one week four students have won the contest!

Students in second, fifth, and sixth grades wrote letters to the soldiers in Staff Sergeant Cardoza's unit in November. The unit received the letters and snacks that were generously donated by Grocery Outlet right before they went out on a mission. They were so thankful for the kind words and support from our kids that some of the marines hung the letters up in their rooms. They weren’t able to write back so Staff Sergeant Cardoza stopped by the school to tell them thank you in person! Staff Sergeant Cardoza has two proud relatives at CCS; his mom, Mrs. Leeper and his brother Trent who is in 6th grade.
Middle school art has been working on a "felt friends" project.  The students create their own pattern out of paper, then use it to cut the felt, add embellishments, then sew their felt pattern pieces together, and then stuff it with batting to complete their project.  Here are just a few of the final products.

As part of their FLEx project, our juniors visited the City of Redmond water treatment plant and wrote an editorial on what they learned.

The high school students celebrated the accomplishments of all the student athletes last Saturday at the annual Athletic Banquet.  They enjoyed great food, games, a recap of each season, and a fun opportunity to gather together as a community!
No school March 23-31 enjoy your Spring Break!
