Mr. Spahn:

In Social Studies we are now moving into the colonization of North America by various countries in Europe. We are in the middle of pulling together all the ingredients for our state presentations. We spent a couple of weeks visiting with Mrs. Ashbridge as she showed us how to make brochures for our state presentations. In Science we have moved on from the warm, fuzzy aspects of our Earth to the cold, unyielding structure of the Earth, and the gifts that the Earth gives us. In Math we are gearing up for the last of the State Tests. We will be touching on many mathematical concepts that will help us succeed next month. We have started the yearly DARE program and the Life Skills course taught by Miss Kleiboer.

We‘ve had our most successful skiing winter on record! We‘ve been out at least 4 times already, and it‘s only the beginning of February with a foot of snow still on the ground. We might be skiing until May this year. Mrs. Palmer, a Reading Specialist in the elementary, has been helping out along with two members of the community. We‘ve had anywhere from four to about 10 students out enjoying the skiing experience on each expedition.
