Students at Valentine's Day event

Fifth graders at Elementary South enjoyed playing an assortment of games in the gym on Valentine’s Day. They played bingo, musical chairs, relay races and much more. Parents who volunteered to help oversee the games were having as much fun as the students.

Students playing carnival games.

Carnival Makes Learning Math Fun

Students had great fun learning during the Math Carnival in Ms. Dimond’s second grade class. They played all types of fun home-made games, from racing cars down an incline to tossing rings into baskets. They kept track of each game they played and the amount of money each game cost, so they could add together how much they spent at the carnival.

Students practicing yoga.

Building Conflict Management Skills

As part of Elementary South’s Great Kindness Challenge, fifth grade students learned conflict management skills. Counselors with Simply Bee, an organization that specializes in stress and anger management, taught them the differences between being passive, aggressive and assertive. Students practiced inhaling self-love and exhaling judgement during a yoga exercise.
