UPPER ELEMENTARY: Falcons
Our upper elementary class this year is comprised of ages 10, 11 and 12 year olds. They will largely be doing 5th through 6th grade work. However, as in all our classes due to the INDIVIDUALIZED attention they receive, some students will be able to work ahead or catch up as needed in various subjects.
We are hoping these older kids will enjoy trying some new sports electives, along with maintaining their tennis class. We are considering horseback riding and/or canoeing at Chattahoochee Nature Center. They will participate in the Science Fair in the winter and have a Social Studies fair in the spring. We will visit the legislature once or twice when the state is in session, as well.
The annual St. Patrick’s Day March and Feast celebration started off with a parade down Main Street Tucker. We capped it off with lunch at the Local Seven.
This Friday our students will embark on a special environmental project with our new Sustainability Outreach Coordinator from GSU! This exciting project will require several plastic grocery bags. Please send plastic grocery bags with your daughter or son this Friday.read more
