SHARING A LOVE OF LEARNING
Our fourth grade classes enjoyed sharing their research and learning from one another about Native Americans. Students brought history to life as they recreated the landscapes, homes and tools of various tribes.
As students visited one another's classrooms they took careful notes about the tribes their peers researched. It was so wonderful to see how they learned about the history, geography and traditions of Native Americans from different regions in the United States
SHARING WITH NEW FRIENDS
It was also a special treat to have a class from Futabakai Japanese School spend the day at Dryden. Our student ambassadors did a great job welcoming them, showing them around our school and participating in some special cooperative activities together. It's exciting to see the children learn about one another's cultures and build friendships.
SHARING WITH THE COMMUNITY
It was so uplifting to experience the generosity of the Dryden community during the donation drive to benefit the local organization Northwest Compass this week. Northwest Compass supports those who are vulnerable or in crisis. We are so thankful to all who donated.
SHARING THROUGH SONG
Another way our students shared in the community was by caroling at a local grocery store after school with our music teacher, Mr. Deptula. During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it was so nice to see the customers slow down and smile as they strolled past our jolly carolers.
SHARING FROM OUR HEARTS
December can be a frigid month, but listening to young children sing always warms our hearts. First grade sang about holidays around the world, helping us experience the beauty and wonder of many special cultures and traditions. It's amazing how music connects us all.
May this season of sharing and caring bring peace and joy to all!
