Mrs. Eckstrand’s Room


This week our Jesus story is "The parable of the farmer and the seeds". We learned that our "seeds" of faith need to be nourished and kept strong using God's Word. We can also spread the seeds of faith we have so that others can grow strong in Jesus and God's word. "Faith comes from hearing the message" is our memory treasure this week.


In Movement we are working on jumping rope.

In Science we took a scientific look at the Artic Wolf and how they stay warm and survive in the Artic. We did this to help prepare our list of things we need as we take a submarine to visit the Artic and North Pole!

In art we are making invisible pictures for our friends to reveal.


Keep sending those runaway gingerbread kids in, these are quite the stories!

4s dot games and K reports will be coming home this week. There are no conferences for this quarter, but feel free to email or conference with me if you have questions or concerns.


Preschool: Our number this week is 18, "long line down, jump back up, make and S close the gate, 18 crown the Queen!" Our letter this week is Yy for yogurt, yoda, yoyo, yellow, and yak.


Kindergarten: In Math we are going to break apart and bond back together the numbers from 10-20. In Reading we will be finishing Icky and meeting a new superkid friend, Tick, Tack, and Toc.


Mrs. Utsch’s Room


In 1st grade Math we read bar graphs and used data to solve problems. In Reading we read CVVC words with -ai and -oa patterns.


In 2nd grade Math we represented addition and subtraction of two-digit numbers with and without regrouping. In Reading class, we read words with -old and -ost, and -ind and ild.


In 3rd grade Math we used place value and regrouping to add 2 and 3-digit numbers. In reading we are reading the novel “Ramona Quimby, Age 8” by Beverly Cleary.


In Religion we heard how Jesus healed a blind man and led him to faith in his Savior. Jesus shows us love by giving us bodily and spiritual gifts. We value spiritual gifts more than other blessings. Our other lesson was about the Ten Lepers. Only one man showed his faith by thanking Jesus. Jesus is pleased when we thank him.


Mr. Gephart’s Room

Hi Parents, Family, and Friends,

Here is a look into the classroom this week.


In Reading, the 4th-5th graders are reading “Holes”. What do holes have anything to do with breaking the law? The 6th-8th graders are reading “Number the Stars”. It is a book about a Jewish girl in Denmark during WWII.

In Grammar this week we are learning about adjectives.

In Math, the 4th graders are learning about division. The 5th graders are finding least common multiples to help us get ready for fractions. The 6th graders are working with rates, ratios, and proportions. The 7th graders are learning about different graphs. The 8th graders are working with polynomials.

This semester, Geography will take the place of Science. This year, we will be studying Europe and Asia.

In History, the upper graders are studying ancient civilizations. We are currently on ancient Rome. The lower graders are learning about the start of the United States. We are studying the early British colonies.

In Writing, we are practicing our descriptive paragraphs.
