Librarian, Mrs. Carter, organized lots of events for the day, like a pet parade, flip flop fashion show and a robotics demonstration. At 10:30 on Saturday morning, the robotics club met in the store’s story area to show off some things that they have been working on this year. Children gathered around to watch and the to use the robots, created with Lego NXT kits, themselves.

Students in Mrs. Wilson’s 5th grade class have been keeping up with current events within our community and around the world. The students presented a news worthy event that occurred within the past week. The students can present their articles in a variety of ways. Some students use technology such at Prezi, Windows Live Movie Maker, Office Powerpoint, and Office Publisher, while other students use their creative side with the arts. Creativity and learning comes alive with re-enactments of the article through a skit, anchoring a newscast , while other still create sculptures and book covers for the article. This allows the students to keep current with news worthy events through all different learning styles and media.
