During the week of Oct. 31 - Nov. 4, all Kindergarten through 5th grade students were able to build a kid kit project such as a tool box or trophy phone case during REACH. These projects helped students work together, read and follow directions, critically think, and create. In addition, 5th grade students worked with 1st and K to help them follow directions and build. Staff were also able to guide students and work together on a project where students were able to bring their projects home. Paul Toben from the east side Home Depot came out to help us work on the kid projects. They donated all materials and encouraged students to join them once per month for a Kid Workshop at the Home Depot stores.

When the weather agreed, we were able to utilize our new outdoor classroom and build outside. Our outdoor classroom was built thanks to the PTA and an Eagle Scout project. We have picnic tables by our school and community garden by our playground.
