Alliance Early Learning School
Our school year at the Alliance Early Learning School began with fun and friendship. An obvious favorite was the very first recess. Students enjoyed running and playing with new friends and classmates. We are looking forward to a phenomenal year.
Alliance Elementary Schools - Parkway/Rockhill
Parkway & Rockhill Elementary Schools are off to a great start. Our students are filling the halls with smiles and are ready to learn. The school Principals and counselors held grade level assemblies discussing expectations, The Golden Rule and making above the line responses. We have many fun learning activities planned for our little Aviators.
Third grade students were excited to begin the new school year. They took photos during reading class on the first day of school.
The third grade students picked something that they would like to accomplish during the school year. They helped make a classroom bulletin board called “This is Your Year To.” The students will refer to this often to see how they are progressing with their goal.
Third Graders are experts at our E (Event) + R (Response) = O (Outcome) initiative. They were able to come up with their own scenarios and made a cartoon strip to show above and below the line responses.
Team Building Activities
As we begin another school year the third graders are learning about being good citizens and working together as a team. In one block they did the team building activity, "Saving Fred." Students had to put Fred, a gummy worm, into his life preserver (a gummy lifesaver) using only four paper clips. It was great to listen and watch students work in their individual teams to problem solve and save Fred. It was even better watching them help and encourage other teams to meet the goal. We are looking forward to a great year with this hard working group of great citizens.
Third graders also participated in another team building activity. One group activity was to build the tallest spaghetti tower with the marshmallow on top, and another activity was experimenting with water on different surfaces. The students enjoyed working in groups and listening to each other’s ideas.
First Grade is Fabulous
Teachers read the story “The Kissing Hand” to their students. Next they went on a quest to find out where Chester was hiding while learning the layout of the school. The students finally caught up with Chester to find that he left cookies for them. The students ended the morning making a fun Chester Craft.
Second Grade Superstars
Second Graders got to know each other by sharing their "Brown Bag Biography." Students brought in five items that fit in their brown bag that represented what was special to them. Students brought in a variety of objects that included family photos, medals and items representing their hobbies and interests. It was a fun and engaging way to get to know each other.
