Yesterday the 8thgrade honors students attended a field trip at Moraine State Park as part of a grant for the Kids to Parks contest #kidstoparksday won by Jenna McFarland for $1,000.00. The students and Buddy Bison #buddybison learned about the history of Lake Arthur, Pennsylvania mammals and Pennsylvania tree identification. It was a wonderful learning opportunity and a huge thanks goes out to the NATIONAL PARK TRUST for their generosity.

In STEAM, students in 3rd Grade have been using Little Bits, electronic building blocks that snap together with magnets, to learn about creating circuits! The power source blocks, input blocks and output blocks are all color coded, and they have been learning about how the input affects the output by tying in the Reading skill, "cause and effect!"
