The first annual fifth grade wax museum was presented at Seal Elementary School on April 7, 2015. Fifth grade students chose a famous scientist or entrepreneur to research during their library class. Then they produced a PowerPoint during computer lab and presented it to their classmates during science class. Finally, students wrote a speech and made a poster during Language Arts class to use for their wax museum presentation. Costumes and props completed the project. Students were excited to share what they had learned. They did an awesome job! We want to thank Mrs. Henderson for helping with research and Mr. Brad Reynolds for letting us use the gym. Thanks also to parents who helped their children find costumes and become their famous person. It was a great experience to be remembered! Our kids were happy that their event was well attended. See you next year!
Austism Speaks – Let’s Listen
April was the month designated as Autism Awareness Month. Students wore the color blue to show support and learn about Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorder. The students pictured gave each homeroom class a fact about ASD on a puzzle piece that was placed on the bulletin board in the hallway. Many students and staff members learned about how Autism affects students and families and how our school supports and helps each student reach his/her highest potential.
