Every Thursday, Mrs. Hancock's 4th graders visit their buddies in Miss Packard's 1st grade class. It's definitely a highlight of the week! Students take turns reading stories to and with each other, and they also enjoy just getting to know one another. We're already looking forward to next Thursday!

Let's Eat Some Dirt

Submitted by lena.bird on Tue, 01/24/2017 - 16:05

Plants and roots help slow erosion, and creatures like worms add to the organic material that gives topsoil its rich nutrients. We had a blast, and the kids loved "eating dirt!"
