3rd and 4th graders had a busy week last week! Along with exciting projects, such as rockets and biographies, they have also worked with several guests throughout the week. On Wednesday morning 4th graders had a visiting artist from Aspen Art Museum who helped them create a piece of art to send to their pen pals in Pakistan. Later that afternoon, four students from Pakistan came to visit CCS. These students are part of the Marshall Direct Fund. This is the same program that we correspond with for our pen pals. For details of this program visit http://marshalldirectfund.org/ .
Thursday, both and 3rd and 4th graders worked with volunteers from the Junior Achievement program. Junior Achievement teaches students K-12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs. The third graders learned about city zones and created a small downtown with businesses and homes. The fourth graders learned about business expenses and revenue. They practiced their skills by running a pretend hotdog stand.
This Friday will be the second day of our second choices.
Also on Friday, 3/4 has partnered with 7/8 to create a Pakistani El Tioga. This will be the final event in our pen pal project. We would love volunteers for prep and clean up. Let us know if you can help!
