Blake Daher, Ashton Vogler, and Tanner Mueller won first place as well bringing gold back to Buffalo Prairie Middle School. Levi Kenady, Silas Mabary, and  Nikko Pettis  brought second place finishes back home. Daniel Mabary, Adam Mabary, Roxlyn Taylor, Dominic Famiano, and Brett Bilyeu brought home third place finishes.

Mrs. Barnhouse's 4th grade classroom has begun using a new way to practice their arithmetic skills. They use dry erase markers on desktops which work wonderfully as a dry erase board. The students love this simple, different way of learning. Who knew? Kleenex will wipe it off.

Potlatch At Long Lane!
Long Lane 2nd Graders held a potlatch today as a culminating activity for their Native American Unit.  They enjoyed nuts, berries, dried meat, and pumpkin pie.  They also made vests and turkey hats.  Their turkey jars were a review of writing summaries with Beginning, Middle and Ends.  Learning can be so much fun!

Helping Students Be Successful
  D.A. Mallory has implemented an intervention wall in the back office. We currently have the STAR Reading and STAR Early Literacy data for each child on our intervention wall.  Student cards are color coded by    grade level and placed in the pocket chart according to where they scored on their most recent STAR assessment. We will use the data wall as the big picture – to adjust whole group instruction as well as individual student  intervention groups. We will be adding STAR Math data to the wall next  week. We hope to see students shift from Below Basic and Basic over to the two categories on the left, which are Proficient and Advanced.
