THIRD GRADE INVENTION FAIR
Third graders were working really hard this past month using their creativity and problem solving skills to create original inventions. Three students from third grade were able to attend the Regional Invention Fair held at our elementary school. While there, they shared their inventions with students from other school districts and were able to work in teams to apply their creativity during problem solving activities. Congratulations to Brady, Kate, and Jace.
ELEMENTARY TECHNOLOGY EXHIBITION
Cashton Elementary hosted a technology exhibit as part of the third grade invention fair this year. Mrs. Von Ruden, Dr. Peterson, and Mr. Kohl coordinated the student-led displays that included several creativity and problem solving stations, drag and drop computer coding, Lego robotics, a flight simulator, and 3D printing. Students from approximately twelve school districts attended the event.
DR. SUESS WEEK
This year for Dr. Seuss reading week, we had three fun dress-up days based on different Dr. Seuss books. Students met with their buddy classrooms for reading, writing, and math activities. Kate even served green eggs and ham for lunch Throughout that week, classrooms were visited by several guest reader including Mr. Bell, Mr. Alderson, Dr. Peterson, and the many high school readers!
FFA LEADERS SUPPORT ELEMENTARY AGRICULTURAL LESSONS
In their role as FFA members, Taylor and William lead a presentation on February 28th for third grade CCLC participants. Taylor and William were teaching the students about soil layers. The third grade CCLC students have had the opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of agriculture and how it relates to their lives through weekly FFA presentations. The third graders are excited to find out what activities they will be doing next!
LOGGERS SUPPORT ELEMENTARY READING PROGRAM
Logger Dog visited Cashton Elementary students on March 9th during their lunch and recess block to help build excitement for the spring reading incentive program. Students track their reading progress, earn bases and prizes from the Loggers, and have an opportunity to earn low-cost admission to a spring Loggers game. Mrs. Kleba coordinates the program locally.
