A Thank You from the American Heart Association

The American Heart Association, on behalf of the millions of Americans it serves, thanked Elementary South for its donation of $10,354.88. Here is a quote from the association’s letter to the school:

“By holding this event at your school each year, you raise awareness about heart-healthy living. And you help us fund more lifesaving scientific research and critically needed education efforts. Thank you. Almost every family in America is touched by heart disease or stroke, and your
school’s contribution will significantly impact our fight against these devastating illnesses. We hope that you, your faculty and your students
found this lifesaving effort rewarding and enjoyable. You are touching so many lives – and life is why we exist as an organization. Your help and support are greatly appreciated.”

Earth Day Celebration

Many classrooms at Elementary South celebrated Earth Day yesterday with a wide assortment of activities. The second grade classrooms of Ms. Hansen and Ms. Rude enjoyed being outside on a perfect day. They cleaned up the grounds surrounding their school. They picked up lots of trash and were careful not to disturb the homes of local animals and insects.

Building a Bird’s Nest

Kindergarten students in Ms. Silver’s class at Elementary South learned all about robins today. They went outside to collect material such as twigs, soil and grass. They learned many facts about robins, such as that they migrate, they eat worms and insects and their babies take 12 to 14 days to hatch. Then it was time for some hands-on activity. Ms. Silver helped her students build their own bowl-shaped nests. First came the twigs, then the soil. They carefully added a layer of grass to provide insulation and a soft environment for the eggs. They used drawings of eggs to complete their nests.

Where can you find Barack Obama, J.K. Rowling, the Dalai Lama and Dolly Parton all under one roof? At Elementary South’s Wax Museum. Third graders in the classes of Mrs. Preston and Ms. Reilly dressed up as famous people. With the push of a button, they talked about the life of the person they represented. Parents, family members and students in other classrooms toured through the museum, learning all kinds of facts and information about some of the world’s most famous figures.
