On October 8th, first graders spent their morning in Peace Valley Nature Center in Doylestown on a seed walk. They explored the fields and meadows looking for different types of seeds noting their packaging and how they travel. The students showed curiosity while finding different types of seeds and were eager to share them with one another.
In Old Chapel on Wednesday, February 6th, our first-grade students celebrated the life of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
During the service, students shared their dreams for a more peaceful world. Statements included: “I have a dream that all kids have loving families,” “I have a dream that people learn to solve problems peacefully, with kindness,” and “I have a dream that one day everyone would live in harmony.”
We hope that all of our students’ dreams come true. Thank you for all who attended and made the service extra special.

What can happen when a fifth-grade class is curious about what they hear a teacher saying to their first graders just after recess? Creative ideas, that’s what!
Mrs. Fessler’s fifth-grade class heard Ms. Endress say to her attentive students, “Today’s story is ‘The Teeny Tiny Ghost and the Monster.’” Mrs. Fessler responded to her students’ plea to go hear the story and the rest is history.
Together, these two classes embarked on a week-long collaborative project. The two classes read the story and each student created their own monster puppet. Then in partners later in the week, they made short story videos using their colorful monsters.
First-grade students used their critical observations and artistic skills to draw the Main Building on a sunny fall day. They discussed all the shapes that make up the historic building, and then put their art skills to the test as they first drew the building in pencil, then flared it, and finished off the project by coloring.
