We Salute our Veterans!
This week we took some time to learn more about veterans and the different branches of the military.
We discussed the background and symbolism of poppies.
Some students made poppies to send to veterans.
Some classes wrote letters to veterans explaining the importance of honoring veterans each November 11th.
This next project was a definite favorite! The students followed step by step directions to create their very own VETERAN. The got to choose wether their veteran was male or female and what branch of military they served.
We realized what amazing things that can be created with LINES.
The Rangers would like to thank Mrs. Mitchell (an Islander) who will be delivering the letters, poppies, and portraits to local veterans on Saturday.
The Rangers celebrated two of our own Trailblazer Veterans.
Meet Mr. Jim and Mrs. Howard.
We THANK YOU for your service!
Thank you to all of the families that participated in our Veterans Day project. The students were super excited to share the veterans in their lives.
To all of the veterans out there, the Rangers salute YOU!
Thank you for your service.
The Sunshine State Book Fairy visited the Rangers today!
Meet, Mrs. Williamson. She came to reward the students who have read (and passed the quizzes) books off the Sunshine State Young Readers Award list. That can be quite a mouthful – so we just say Sunshine state Books!
Remember, the list is ON THIS SITE under READING. All classrooms have the books listed or the books can be checked out from the Knowledge Nook. The quizzes can be taken from each student’s My Pasco Connect dashboard.
So, a new game at recess is the “Chase Game”. I am sure you can determine the concept of the game from the title, right? Mrs. Hendrickson yells out who chases who (girls chase boys, boys chase girls, everyone chase __). Once tagged, you have to sit down until you are tagged again by someone on your team.
Well today, these “soldiers” came ready to report for duty!
Just incase you’re ever curious as to what actually happens during lunch! Check out the mustache and the bow tie.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Thank a veteran.
