Exploring the World of Wool

Students from Ms. Thonney's 2nd grade Enrichment Group stayed after school recently to learn about wool. From sheep to spinning, these kids now know their stuff!

Kinders Visit Pumpkin Patch

Thanks to Klicker's Pumpkin Patch for hosting Blue Ridge kindergartners at their pumpkin patch. Students leared about how pumpkins grow. They then enjoyed a slide down the haystack slide.

In The Library

Primary students learn all about fall with some exciting new books, including "Sophie's Squash" by Pat Zietlow Miller; illustrated by Anne Wilsdorf. We love our librarian, Mrs. Seibold, she introduces us to new books, and makes learning to use the library fun!
