Be a Champ!

Isaac and Champ are seeing eye dogs who came to CIS to show us how we can be helpful to people who are blind. They are very hard workers and when they are working, we need to leave them alone. Thanks to the Chadron State College Social Work students for giving us such very important information.

Finished Fossils

Making Fossils on Friday

We were making molds and casts today in class.We used modeling clay for the mold.We used plaster of Paris for the cast.We used petroleum jelly to cover the seashells so they would not stick.It was a lot of fun.

Glue Art Self Portraits

We often hold onto the students' art work to save for the fair and parents don't get to see it. So here are our self portraits that we made using glue and pastels. We thought they turned out pretty well!

Petrified Wood

This rock was my uncle's. It is a piece of wood that has been petrified. Petrified means to turn into rock.

We Voted!

We voted!  In Mr. Horst's class today, fourth graders were given the chance to vote for their candidate.  They may not be old enough to vote in the real election, but they have their stickers to prove that they got to take part in the process this year.

Proof of the vote.

More proof of the vote.
