Welcome readers back to another Weekly Warrior article! This week Mrs. Bosworth’s kindergarten class is making progress in their alphabet and numbers; they are learning very fast!

They are studying their 5 senses– sight, smell, taste, touch, and sound.
On September 28th/29th Ms. McDermid’s 4th-6th class visited Malakoff Diggins State Park to learn about the pioneer times during the Gold Rush.

Ms. Bolle’s class is starting to build a robot called a Sea Perch for Tech Class. Everyone in Ms. Bolle’s classes received a log to work on for the whole year. They are improving every day!
