Gavin started 2nd grade in Mrs. Hiel’s class. Connor gets to spend 3 days a week in Mrs Patwa’s preschool class. Both boys were very excited to start school at Turtleback Elementary.
Aliciana took some pictures of the students in Mrs Patwa’s preschool class having fun while learning.
Aliciana was on hand to take pictures of the Halloween parade at Turtleback, as well as Halloween crafting fun taking place in Gavin’s and Connor’s classes.
Aliciana snapped some photos of the Multicultural Festival put together by the 2nd grade classes at Turtleback.
Every 2nd grader brought in a traditional food item from one of the countries of their ancestors. Gavin brought one of my favorite foods from Germany: bratwurst. Delicious!
Gavin won a character award from Turtleback for “fairness”, which Aliciana was able to see him get awarded. Every month, the principal awards students who represent one of Turtleback’s character pillars.
Pictures taken by Aliciana of the preschoolers having a blast at their party. They made heart shaped pancakes with strawberries, as well as doing other fun crafts.
For the science fair this year, Gavin experimented with various objects to investigate which properties impact how fast they fall (not in a vacuum). He won an honorable mention… good job little scientist Bub!
