Class Primary

Today we had our primary. Some of the boys ran for the boy party, and some of the girls ran for the girl party. Speeches were given, promises were made, and maybe a few bribes were handed out. Below are some pictures and campaigning from the day.

Adopt a Tree

Students have all chosen a tree to adopt from the schoolyard habitat. They will do a variety of activities with their tree throughout the year from researching the kind of tree it is, determining whether it is indigenous to Pennsylvania, learning what kind of animals may benefit (or not benefit) from their tree to just enjoying their tree and learning about the wonders and kindness of nature.

Our identity

First and foremost, we are the Symbiotic Classroom! Our environment is one of symbiosis whereas, we all rely on each other, learn together and have mutually beneficial outcomes. Symbiosis does not happen by accident, and it is not easy. We will spend this year adjusting and cooperating to create a perfect environment for each living and non-living thing in our classroom environment.

Our class named itself the Robotic Rhinos and we will forever be referred to as Mrs. Abernethy's Robotic Rhinos. Former classes have coined the phrase that once a Robotic Rhino, always a Robotic Rhino. My wish is that the Robotic Rhinos will continue to rely on each other, help each other and support each other long after they leave the confines of this symbiotic classroom.

Below are a series of pictures that were eventually merged to become our class logo. These are not the only entries, just the finalists. We definitely have an artistic crew in this amazing classroom.
