Freshmen in Life Skills divided up into groups to discuss and critique a list of Creative Dating Ideas complied by other teens. They were able to discuss what resources they have and what were some really cool ideas they hadn't thought of. Stand out ideas among these groups included: Go to the State Fair, Swim in a lake, river, or pool, bake cookies, take a coin flip trip, (every time you come to a stop sign you flip a coin to determine if you turn left or right!) go to a nice restaurant with live musicians, & take a picnic to the mountains.

Applications, interviews, first week on the job, and finally pay day! Third grade earned their first paychecks this week. They received a pay stub and learned how to understand one. Students also learned about gross and net pay as well as taxes that were taken out. Students learned how to fill out a deposit slip to put their money in the bank.
How does earth change over time? Some changes are quick (volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, landslides, etc) and some are slow (wind, erosion, glaciers, water). Second grade did an experiment to demonstrate what happens to the earth's crust during an earthquake. We used orange paint as the "hot molten rock" under the graham cracker "crust." The students moved the crust apart, got it wet and pushed it together to form mountains, rubbed it against each other, and pushed it underneath each other to show all the ways an earthquake can affect the earth. Of course there was enough left over to sample the crust after the experiment was over.

Julesburg Elementary School ended it's celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America Week with a visit from a special and local author, Kayla Friend, author of two beautiful children's stories, "What Leprechauns Don't Want You To Know" and "Follow Your Wings". Kayla came to our school to share these wonderful books and to talk about her experiences leading her to becoming an author. Our students had so many questions and thoroughly enjoyed their time with Kayla. Books were purchased by Julesburg Elementary School and will be available for students to check out at school. We will also do a book give-away at our next Coffee Talk on March 31st. In addition, we would like to give a special thank you to Dennis Aulston for connecting us with Kayla. This connection was made after JES students selected a favorite book and then painted a ceiling tile illustrating their favorite book to hang up in our school to celebrate all things literacy. Dennis shared this information with Kayla who was so excited to see that kindergartner, Sara Crowder had chosen one of Kayla's books as her favorite book. Thanks again to Kayla and Dennis and we can't wait to have her back!
