Ms. Zavalick's second grade class collected, analyzed, and displayed data during a St. Patrick's Day math activity.  Students were given a cup of Lucky Charms cereal and had to count how many of Lucky's charms they each had.  The students sorted the marshmallows and represented data using tally marks and a bar graph.  At the end, they analyzed and compared their data with classmates and had a little snack.

Students at the Wetherbee School use the ST Math online program to help improve their basic skills, and each student is given a goal to reach and a certain amount of time in which to meet the expectations. We are so proud of Kaily in grade 3 who received a jeans pass for JiJi (the ST Math penguin) goal completion!

Wetherbee Grade 5 Students With Their Civil Rights Projects

On Friday, March 23, fifth grade Wetherbee students completed their study of American history during the civil rights movement. They shared their work with the school via a project fair in the atrium, and also presented their research on Civil Rights Activists and/or the Civil Rights Movement for grade 3 students, who also study biographies about this era in history. 

Here are some of the standout projects!

On Friday, March 2nd, fifteen groups of sixth grade students from the Wetherbee School participated in a classroom BREAKOUT experience focused on the life and work of Dr. Seuss. By solving a series of mysterious clues and relying on teamwork to get them through each new challenge, five out of the fifteen groups were able to successfully BREAKOUT! Congratulations to the victorious students!

During February vacation, select students across Lawrence participated in the annual Sontag Acceleration Academy program. The Wetherbee School invited second grade students to attend "Junior" Acceleration Academy for the first time this year -- and look at their amazing enrichment projects! Nice work second grade!
