One book can open the door to so many more opportunities! After reading Mel Fell, in which a Kingfisher is the main character, Mrs. Dawson, our librarian, led younger students to create a Kingfisher of their own, and older students on a search to learn more about this type of bird.

Excitement filled the air at MHE as students eagerly gathered to witness the rare celestial spectacle of a solar eclipse. Armed with protective eyewear, they gazed skyward in wonder, marveling at the gradual dance of the moon obscuring the sun. Students across the playground exchanged awe-filled whispers and shared their observations with wide-eyed fascination. For these young learners, experiencing the eclipse was not just a lesson in astronomy but a magical moment that ignited curiosity and sparked imaginations.

How many books would a 3rd grader read if a 3rd grader could read books? Hopefully the answer is 40! 3rd grade students are working on fluency, stamina, and comprehension by participating in the 40 the book challenge. They strive to read books from various genres. Their teachers have set up a fun bulletin board to help track their progress!

Sure you can solve a problem, but can you share and show your thinking? Step into just about any math lesson at MHE and you will see students explaining how they solved with both pictures and words. Students in Mrs. Schuler's 3rd grade class worked together to decide which fraction was greater.

A simple thank you goes a long way! Our students absolutely rocked the emergency drills we held this week, including the statewide tornado drill. The fire department gave us a 100% and great praise for our seamless fire drill. As a reward, all classrooms were given cookies to be able to celebrate their hard work as a class. Mrs. Parton's friends had the idea to write a thank you card to Mrs. Carter for the cookies. It was a very sweet surprise!
