Positive Bus Referral
Congrats to Seth Pilkington! áSeth is a second grader in Mrs. Souza's class. áSeth received a Positive Bus Referral from his bus driver. áHere is what his bus driver wrote: á"On Wednesday afternoon, after Seth and another younger boy had gotten off of the bus, they attempted to cross the road. áSeth and the other boy had made sure that they paused, looked both ways and that it was safe to cross. áSuddenly, a pick-up truck whipped around the corner and headed down the street. áQuickly thinking, Seth grabbed the younger boy by the arm and pulled him back in front of the bus and towards the shoulder of the road!" áWe are VERY proud of Seth's quick thinking! áWe're proud of ALL of our little Bison and the things that they can do! áSeth was presented a certificate good for TWO free Pizza Buffets at Incredible Pizza! áAlong with his pizza, Seth will also enjoy $10 in free game play while he is there! áWay to go Seth!

Pre-Schoolers Make Play-Doh!
Recently, our youngest Bison at the Mallory Pre-School made their own Play-Doh!á They measured, poured, and mixed the ingredients.á The recipe called for 2 cups of flour, and 1 cup of salt.á I used a half cup measuring scoop and had the students tell me the number of half cup scoops we needed in order to correctly follow the recipe.á They were able to correctly convert the measurements. It was educational as well as helping students build fine motor skills and as you can see from the pictures, they had a great time.á

Mallory 2nd Graders and Eggs!
The students in Mrs. Redd's second grade class spent last week experimentingá with eggs in order to find the effects that different beverages have on our teeth.
