Third-graders took a field trip to Huyck Preserve where they did a hands-on exploration of the stream ecosystem and went for a nature hike around the preserve. Students learned about the concepts of habitats and impacts of environmental change. They also learned how to catch crayfish and analyze different types of crayfish.

May is Mental Health Awareness and Prevention Month. Did you know that mental health impacts our physical well-being and our ability to focus and learn in the classroom? While mental health is always a priority, these past couple of years have been especially difficult so it is more important than ever to care for ourselves and support others. During the month of May, we are encouraging all staff and students to wear green for Wellness Wednesdays. In addition to wearing green, we have shared our May Prevention calendar, provided by Twin Counties Recovery Services Inc. This calendar suggests healthy activities and coping strategies to help create a healthy mindset. Remember that everyone matters, your story matters and reach out if you need support! #mentalhealthmatters

For Arbor Day (April 29), Mrs. Pollard’s fifth grade class learned about trees from her father, Michael Pollard, who is a retired arborist (or person who specializes in care for trees and shrubs). He showed Google Slides while talking about trees and even used the interactive whiteboard feature on the new Promethean Board. The class had an awesome day learning all about trees!

Over the break, our IT team installed dozens of Promethean Boards in CDE classrooms. These interactive whiteboards are one of the newest innovations in instructional technology and they easily integrate with the Google Chromebooks and apps already used by faculty and students, making it easier for teachers to display and interact with content. The District used federal funds from the American Rescue Plan to purchase more than 80 Promethean Boards, which will be installed in almost every classroom in the district by September.
