The fifth grade class has been very busy in the month of May. In terms of academics, one highlight was the wonderful Mother’s Day letters they constructed, complete with Rodrigue Blue Dog paintings. It was also great fun to see them reciting Pete Carroll’s inspirational “Always Compete” poem from memory.
The most remarkable thing about May has been all of the different activities we have taken on outside the realm of traditional academic work. We cleaned up trash in our community to celebrate Earth Day, watched an adapted Shakespeare play by Montana Shakes and practiced developing characters with professionally trained actors, learned about the significance of the American Flag from three Lions Club members, had great hands on science experiences at Bear Creek Days, created paintings and drawings, practiced yoga at Art Day, performed a concert at the Madison Valley Manor, and explored the Lewis and Clark Caverns. I would like to give a huge thanks to our school and community for providing the kids with so many awesome opportunities.
