Special thanks to our Grammar School families who attended our Thanksgiving feast. We are very thankful for all of you!

4th & 5th grade visited the landfill located in Abernathy the Friday before Thanksgiving break. They were so impressed with their tour and all that they learned. Environmentalist Darrell Mills, who works for the city of Lubbock, is doing an excellent job of disposing of all of our waste yet not contaminating the environment in the process. They had a great experience!

Students enjoyed a visit from a mobile dairy on Monday afternoon.

Hands-on projects bring learning to life for our students! Fourth grade students created Seigneuries after reading Madeleine Takes Command, and first graders researched different Native American tribes and created dwellings. They also gave oral presentations to their teacher and classmates. We are proud of the amazing work of our students!

First graders went behind the scenes last week at Market Street to learn about all that goes on at a grocery store. They thoroughly enjoyed visiting all of the different departments. The seafood expert was their favorite! They even spent their own money to make a purchase before heading out. They will be expert helpers on their next visit to the grocery store with mom & dad. 

KPA kindergarten visited the corn maze to end off their unit on Fall and Harvest. They found their way through the maze, visited some farm animals, went on a hayride to a pumpkin patch, and everyone picked a pumpkin.
