The Library Needs Your Help! It's that time of year again, when all library books need to be returned to the library. Please go through your houses this weekend and send overdue library books back to school on Monday. All students who have overdue books have been given overdue slips twice this week to take home. However, we know that sometimes this gets lost in the shuffle, so if you could ask your child over the weekend if they have a book to return, the school librarian would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for all you do and all of your help!!!!

Arty Thursday was celebrated as part of The Week of the Young Child at Shoshoni Early Learning Center. Students enjoyed the story "Ain't Gonna Paint!" by David Catrow. Then they used their fine motor skills to cut out a butterfly, finger painted one half of it, and then folded it to make a butterfly with matching wings. They learned about the mathematical concept of symmetry while enjoying the glitter paint and fun spring art!
The 5th graders are spending the last few weeks in Library learning about coding, building circuits, and programing arduinos. This class made traffic lights yesterday. Looks like they are starting to get the hang of it!
Work Together Wednesday!! Shoshoni Early Learning Center students continue to celebrate the Week of the Young Child with working together! Today, the students were put into teams and given a floor puzzle challenge! They had a great time building new puzzles, and were so proud of the finished products! The skills that young children learn from working together are key to school success!
The high school greenhouse management class spent some time this week as teachers for two classes of elementary science students. Mrs. Jarvis and Mr. Ballou teamed up to provide some opportunities for each group of students to grow in their understanding of plant production. Mrs. Jarvis provided three science standards that included the plant life cycle, variation and inheritance, and planting zones and climate. The high schoolers then used these as their guide to teach the younger students by using the greenhouse plants, and their experiences in the class, to provide a more place based learning opportunity.
Shoshoni Early Learning Center celebrated The Week of the Young Child with Tasty Tuesday! They enjoyed Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and then made some tasty trees with bananas, grapes, and apples! Students learned about the letter t and enjoyed a visit to the 2nd grade classroom to see the tortoise.
Shoshoni Little Wranglers Preschool Students are celebrating The Week of the Young Child. Music Monday was celebrated with making plastic egg maracas. This was a great opportunity to incorporate counting, and meaningful connections to learn the letter e. The celebration even included a musical parade to show off their maracas!
Please come out and support our students. We have lots of tickets left and a wonderful beef in mushroom sauce for dinner. This year will the play will take place all around the school as we tour many of Poe's famous stories.
