If you haven’t already signed-up, there is still time to join us this summer in our fun classes, field trips and more…

End of Year Concerts
End of Year Picnic with a visit from the Gouda Girls Cheese Truck
Before the lazy days of summer are upon us, students are still hard at work.
Mrs. Loder’s Children’s House students have been working on the fine arts, while Ms. Mueller’s students have been raising butterflies. Mrs. Brys’s Lower Elementary students have been working with rocks and minerals and more… Mrs. Fritsche’s students learned about the reasons for Memorial Day, learned patriotic songs and read patriotic books in preparation for the celebration they had just before the holiday. Our youngest students have been busy planting the MMS garden and learning about the violin!
After school the fun continues both inside and out. Jayhawks students recently completed their artistically created avatars, and
you can have a look by clicking here. Our soccer players have been doing much more than just kickin’ it at the park after school, they’ve learned the fundamentals of the game and had a fun time doing it.

As it is April 30th, we hope the April showers are coming to an end and many May flowers are on the horizon. But, before we step into May, let’s take a look at all the fun April brought:
Earth Day was a big event, and MMS went outside to enjoy mother earth, read and see what our classrooms did:
Many fun lessons were also learned, such as
equivalence with the contructive triangles, squid dissection, and quadrilaterals. And, what about the fun things that have been made, like the butterfly tree completed by Mrs. Wijenayake’s classroom.
Finally, please read about the great accomplishments of our
Wisconsin State Fair Youth Art award winners and our Storm track and field team off to a fast start!
January was a busy month as we all got back in the swing of things after the holidays. Much has happened in our classrooms…
Just yesterday, our LE students took a trip to the Zoo for Groundhog’s Day,

Mrs. Heller’s Children’s House students cared for their
feathered friends and one student talked about his favorite work. Mrs. Wijenayake’s students wrote about Martin Luther King Jr.
LE Room 207 has been having lessons about the sun and prisms, geography, the pythagoras board, and more… While LE 208 has been learning about the web of life, cubing, pin maps and triangles, and click here to see a recap of their 2011 fun!
Things have been very busy in the art room with
new self portrait work, and some students’ previous self portraits have recently been honored by placement in the Children’s Hospital permanent collection! The JH Blog is also featuring self portrait artwork, can you guess who is who? And, check out the second grader’s lesson in Harmony.
