As we move into the second quarter of the school year, Laureate Park Elementary students continue to commit to being the best students they can possibly be, whether they are learning in school or online. Second grade students recently completed a social studies unit on American symbols. To finish the unit, they had to pick an American symbol, recreate it, and present a report to their classmates. We learned about the Statue of Liberty, Washington Monument, the White House, bald eagles, and more.
Our first grade Longhorns in Ms. Do’s online class are building relationships with their classmates by having virtual playdates during recess. Activities include guided conversations and directed drawings.
Laureate Park Longhorns celebrated fall with a pajama day in early October. Whether they attended school in-person or online, students loved to spend their day comfortable in their pajamas.
Lots of students and staff participated in Walk to School Day on Oct. 7. Meeting in Crescent Park, our Longhorns walked to school together – socially distanced with masks – in order to promote awareness of healthier habits, a cleaner environment, and pedestrian safety. Thanks to all who participated.
Finally, even though things might feel a little different at school this year, one tradition has continued: door decorations. Longhorn Room Moms have brought their creativity in force by decorating the classroom doors. It’s always a fun and festive way to make our school feel warm and welcoming!
