The Athens Elementary first graders took a trip to NTC and The Wausau Imaginarium. At NTC they saw and did many interesting things such as video production, E sports, planting seeds, and using spheroid robots controlled by a tablet. The Imaginarium was a terrific place to learn by exploring! Students explored water features, wind tunnels and tubes, and various real-life experiences with a sugar shack, market, and food truck. It was a great day!

Students in Ms. Kalepp's math class have enjoyed the sunshine this week. They had to draw different types of quadrilaterals and triangles with chalk. Then their partner had to identify and classify them based on their sides and angles. Students even used some of the quadrilaterals already painted on the blacktop.

25 families participated in the April comedy night at AES.  Students practiced fluency and perseverance by reciting jokes and two silly stories were read modeling effective reading strategies.  Did you know that students who read 20 minutes per day are exposed to 1.8 million words in a year? Even reading just 5 minutes per day provides 282,000 words per year! What's the moral of this story?  PLEASE READ every day!

Preschoolers in Mrs. Hartwig's class got a chance to be teachers during their farm unit. The students taught their classmates about the jobs they do on their family's farm and the animals they help take care of. The students learned that having farm animals is hard work, but it is also fun and rewarding.

Mrs. Hartwigs preschoolers enjoyed some hands on learning activities during our outer space and dinosaur thematic units. Students created their own planets and described their planets by answering questions. Students got to be paleontologists and learned about dinosaurs, explored dinosaurs through our dig site with dinosaur skeletons, built letters out of bones, and searched for letters in dinosaur eggs.
