Those pesky leprechauns were busy even on a snow day! They managed to get around the leprechaun traps the students set out. The leprechauns left a mess, but at least they left a little gold and some sweet treats!
Accent! performed for various groups of students today to prepare for a competition this Wednesday, March 22.

Thank you to both the CTE Food Systems and Natural Resource Class and Ms. Wardynski for planting sunflowers, radishes, tomatoes, and basil with Mrs. Boyd’s 2nd grade class. Recently, the 2nd grade students learned about soil and the lifecycle of plants. An example of a lesson coming to life!
More fun from Pi Day! Mrs. Fechter's students competed to see who could roll ten dice to match the first ten numbers of Pi. Students competed in brackets to determine a winner for each class. Kim Pferrer, Camilla DeGrave, Landon Buerger, Robert Roberts, Jazlynn Oja, and Gabriella Duva were the winners of each hour. How many numbers of Pi can you name?
The Pi competition continued into 7th hour, where Pi finals took place. Maddie Braucher took 1st place with a whopping 243 numbers of Pi memorized! Jacinta Lauzon came in 2nd with 219 numbers, and Breanna Freeman came in 3rd with 144 numbers. Congratulations for working so hard!
