First Grade Peace Builders!

The first graders are learning everything it takes to be a Center School Peace Builder!  When asked, "What does a Peace Builder do?" each student gave an answer that was made into the following doves.  It is so impressive what they can communicate about all the information they are learning!

Interactive Learning in Reading, Social Studies and Writing!

The kindergarteners read a story, "Elmer and Rose" then used the iPads to draw the main character, a very unique elephant!
The second graders used the iPads to write and draw an example of what it means to be a good citizen in a community.  Then the second graders created "All about Me" posters on the MacBooks, writing about what makes them special.

Enjoy our examples!  What creative students we have at Center!

Center School Sightings Newscast - Episode 1!

Welcome to another season of our school newscast, Center School Sightings (CSS)!  We're excited about bringing you all of the events and excitement for learning from our school.

This newscast is produced entirely by our fifth graders!  They are the videographers, reporters, anchors and editors.  It is amazing to see the news through their eyes.

Our first episode takes you to our beginning of the year all school assembly.  A special thank you to Bella and Ada for kicking off the newscast in style!
