Second grade has bank art in March. We thought with the weather this year it would be appropriate to have wild, wind blown hair! The students used water colors and straws for the wind blown look. This is a sneak preview. Go by the bank throughout March to see the final results. These second graders are sure creative. They had many laughs while creating this art. Special thanks to Mrs. Paiz and Ms. Keli for their ideas and help!

In second grade we partner read to get more practice and to build fluency. Partners are expected to be "coaches" for each other. We talk about ways to give hints or clues if someone doesn't know the words. They are also expected to follow along and listen for mistakes to help their partner improve accuracy.
To celebrate FFA week, our students participated in class color wars and class tug-of-war contests. All students who dressed up won a cookie! The student selected as best dressed was Collin Lechman.

JHS students in Ag Mechanics work on the various steps of refurbishing the work benches that are located in the shop. Hours of sanding is required before they can move forward. Upon further findings it appears the work benches were built out of the original gym floor from the high school. Once refinished these work benches will be moved to the CTE area of the new Julesburg School District.
In second grade we utilize the videos that come with our series to introduce and explain new concepts. They are quick, funny, and engaging. The lessons then go on with the gradual release model. First the teacher shows the students the steps, then we practice the steps or success criteria together. Next, the students complete some problems with a partner. After all that practice, students complete the rest of the lesson on their own. The lesson ends with an exit ticket. This is one more chance for practice to prove they understand the lesson. The students know the routine and comment how much they like math.
Ms. A and her 4th graders we're practicing their critical thinking skills. She wrote a word on the board and students had to think what the rule was by coming up with other words. For example chip was written (the rule was words that started with ch) if the word did not follow the rule it could not go on their "trip".
Due to weather and road conditions, The Julesburg School District will have a late start at 10 am tomorrow, February 23rd.
It's FFA week at JHS! Today our students had a dress up day challenge: Country versus Country Club. All students who participated were treated to a giant cookie! Kierra Ehnes was selected as the best dressed. Students participated in an egg toss contest while others answered FFA trivia questions.
Congratulations to Jolene Mathies for earning the Good News Call of the Day from Mrs. Renquist! Jolene did such a great job on her online classes last semester that her teacher, Mr. Galen Harkness, asked if he could use some of her work as examples in future classes. Jolene was excited to share the news with me. Jolene showed a huge improvement last semester on staying on top of her classes and working ahead. Way to go Jolene!
