This girl really knows how to Level Up! She passed addition in Xtra Math AND met her end of year Accelerated Reader goal in the same week! I can't wait to see what goal she tackles next!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! These Vikings loved making elves to decorate downtown windows with!
The Tuesday before Thanksgiving we celebrated friendship by making pumpkin pie in a cup together. Each group of students followed the recipe carefully to make their own batch of this sweet dessert. They also made predictions and gathered data about who would like it. 9 of 12 did!

Garfield staff loves to build relationships! Mrs. Tierney was privileged to be this student's teacher last year. The bond created began because we are both redheads and had both experienced teasing because of our hair. This morning we shared breakfast and a book.
Winter is quickly approaching so recess time is becoming more and more valuable. These students enjoying hanging around together at recess on Wednesday.
