Mrs. Michelle Martin’s Class News:
Mrs. Michelle Martin’s Reading group at Mt. Vernon Elementary has been reading and conducting research about the Civil War. The students have read several books and articles relating to the various topics taught about the Civil War. Then they chose a way to display their own research findings. The students have worked on this project for the last four weeks in preparation for the Wildcat Mountain field trip that they will be attending on Friday, October 16th. They presented their display boards, PowerPoints, and brochures to their peers today as the culminating event to end their research. They have made me proud and have done a wonderful job preparing the rest of the 5th grade class with knowledge about what they may see on their field trip.
Mrs. McQueary’s Class News:
Mrs. McQueary’s 2nd grade class took a tour of Salt Petre Cave. We enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about caves and bats. It was an awesome trip. If you have never been, our class would like to encourage you to take a tour. You will be amazed!
