Big Friend / Little Friend Activity

SLS started their Big Friend / Little Friend program today with a rock activity. Each BF /LF team share information about who they are and what they like.

One little boy told Jake his favorite food was white. Another little girl asked her big friend what color her kitchen was? Important stuff I think...

Next the Big Friend help the Little Friend (s) cover a rock with glue and tissue. These "rock beings" will be a little keep sake of this day's interaction.

Our Big Friends are in the 3rd to 8th grades and our Little Friends are preschool to 2nd grade.

First Grade Chapel

Mr. Beckman and his class did our chapel this Wednesday.

They talked about the belt of truth.

Mr. Baker really needed a belt for his outfit...

We learned of Shachach, Meshach and Abednego and the truth they stood up for...
Great job Mr. Beckman and First Graders!

Mrs. Brand's Birthday Celebration

Kindergarteners love to celebrate birthdays.

Especially birthdays of thier teacher.

Home made cards are the order of the day. So many ways to say, "We Love You."

How old might this kindergarten teacher be... I'm not saying!
But a related math problem - Her years add up to 9.

SLS Outdoor Education Area

It was a hot dry summer. We worked do hard to keep the gardens going... IN the end not much grew and lots of plants withered away... It is a new season and our fall plantings are off and running. Mr. Beckman and the 1st graders assisted greatly with these plants.

Mr. Baker thought the fence on Main Street would be a great place to put some morning glories. They are just reaching their peak. Drive by this side of the OEA and enjoy the view.

Mr. Baker's gourds were eager to get out of the hot sun and some even climbed into the maple tree near the garden... Here is a gourd froming 8 feet off the ground on the side of the tree. Tree gourds I'm thinking... Stop by the gardens to see what up.
