More drawing fun with Jamie

 Jamie shows the children how to draw a horse.

River children get a chance to practice what they have learned.

Drawing is becoming a popular Center choice thanks to Jamie's input.


Students continue to run laps.

Language Groups

 We always have fun when Kathy comes to give a language lesson in River Class. Students listen intently as Kathy shows them examples of fonts. She talks about the importance of using the same font throughout a digital story and explains when it is effective to use a larger size. The children will then use what they have learned using the iPads and the app called Book Creator.

Some River language students are paired up with Campus Early Schoolers to read stories together. This gives Early Schoolers an opportunity to become familiar with our Lower School environment! Our students also get practice being leaders and sharing their reading skills.

Dance Class

 Dance is always fun! We got to use props again this…

Spirit Week

Fun on Pyjama Day!

Enjoying an outside lunch as part of Spirit Week.

The 4th year Spirit Committee made cookies for everyone.

River Garden

River students begin to prepare our garden square (on Crazy Hair and Hat Day).

We plant lettuce seeds. 

It's hard work but a lot of fun.

We rake, dig, and plant.

We'll all enjoy a salad bar when it's ready to eat.

We won't forget to water!

More art with Jamie (Middle School art teacher)

This week children learn how to draw fantasy creatures.

Students watch intently as Jamie gives a lesson.

The students are proud of their creations.
