First Grade Field Trip to the Apple OrchardFirst grade West Monona students have been learning a lot about apples. We went to Small's Apple Orchard on Friday, September 30. They got to see how apples are sorted and how to make apple cider. Then we all went on a hay ride through the apple trees and the kids got to pick a bag of apples to take home.

Thanks to the PTO for sponsoring our field trip. Front Row: Alexis, Xander, Tony, Bridgette, Makayla, Leiland, Isabella, Gavin, BlakeBack Row: Landon, Brynn, Colton, Josh, Evan, Zoey ...

Breakout EDUHave you heard of Breakout EDU? Mrs. Brewer's fifth grade class not only heard about it from their teacher but also participated in their first ever Breakout session last week. Mrs. Brewer learned about Breakout EDU after attending an Edcamp seminar in February. Breakout sessions are basically games where participants try to break into a locked box using a series of clues. Participants have a limited amount of time to solve the clues and open the locks. The game is heavy on problem-solving, critical thinking, and teamwork. Students had fun working together to get the clues solved and to open the box.
