OM (Odyssey of the Mind) teams from our school have advanced to the next level of competition and that means that numerous students and chaperones will need transportation, room and board for the event. To help with this cause, students were allowed to dress in green for St. Patrick’s Day last week in exchange for $2. These fourth graders festively joined in on the fun!
As these fourth graders got outside to ready their garden plot for spring planting, they managed to pull the longest root they have ever seen!
At the beginning of each school year, TLC students sell mums as a fundraiser for Parents Involved (PI.) This year, students with the most sales won gift cards. 603 mums were sold school wide and the funds will be used by PI to help pay for school supplies.
Remember that cold snap we had back in January? Just as soon as there was a break in the weather, second graders raced outside to check on their fairy houses. They wondered if the frozen temperatures damaged their structures and were eager to assess and repair!
Recently, second graders completed a study of penguins, a week long “Penguin Palooza.” Using learning activities across the curriculum, students were able to read about penguins, write a report, complete a 3D penguin art project, use media and technology to do research, and completed their study by designing and constructing “Penguin Hideouts.”
The second grade students enjoyed learning about penguins throughout the week and had concluded by the end of the week that penguins are “fascinating and amazing birds.”

Second graders recently began their science study of birds. They began by looking at identification manuals of birds in North America. They will spend several weeks exploring the life cycles, habitat, regions where different types of birds live, food birds eat and nest requirements.
