Alliance Early Learning School
The preschoolers at Alliance Early Learning School look forward to a special visit from Janet Metzger. She visits for story time at AELS and engage young students in age appropriate literature and songs. The preschool team is grateful for our community partners at Rodman Public Library who always provide enriching activities for the students.
Kindergarten students in Lori Gasparik, Megan Harper/Cynthia Gaines and Shari Johnson's classes took a dance class. After reading the story, "Degas and the Little Dancer," the students spent the entire week learning about art, music and dance. Holly Power, who danced for many years, took the students through a ballet class. They warmed up, stretched and learned the five positions in ballet. They got to practice their skills with a little music afterward. What a fun way to make a book come to life.

First graders are busy learning about living things. They spent an afternoon exploring worms. They created a venn diagram noting similarities and differences between earthworms and gummy worms. They also noticed how worms react to change, as all living things do.

The seventh grade students will be enjoying their trip to see “A Christmas Carol” at the Canton Civic Theater. Students have been reading this classic tale in class. Now they will get to see it come to life. They will be able to compare the play in their reading textbook with the actual live show. Students will also get to participate in a question and answer session with the actors and directors after the play is over.
Students from Kim Cody's Read 180 classes, combined sixth, seventh and eighth graders, have read 733,019 words so far this school year. This is an amazing accomplishment. The students are emerging into life-long readers. Please continue to encourage your students to read at home. The more they read the better they get at it. The students continue to persevere through the daily challenges and have so much to be proud of.
Select girls will be attending Code Girl 2019 at Walsh University to discover computer science and engineering concepts through hands-on activities. Students were able to attend the field trip free of cost and will be collaborating with girls from ten or more other districts in the surrounding areas.
