5th grade students learn the meaning of Christmas by wrapping gifts they bought at the holiday shop for a special person in their lives.
In Mrs. Bloom's and Mr. Visnosky's social studies classes, students have been learning about the first civilization, Ancient Mesopotamia. After learning about the first writing system ever recorded, cuneiform, they were able to experience how they wrote using what they had learned. They all agree that without this writing system, we wouldn't be able to write today!
Mrs. Roulin's Foundations of Art students were in the spirit this week while practicing blending techniques with colored pencils. As a result, they created Christmas bow drawings that depict the illusion of form through the use of light and shadow.
Student Council officers delivered blankets donated by school and community members for the Covers for Kids Drive. The donations usually go to Janet Weis Children's Hospital, but overwhelming support and a surplus of donations allowed them to also deliver extra blankets to AGAPE.
The holiday season is about giving to those in need, as illustrated by FBLA members Gracie Keller, Anesa Brown, and Elizabeth Hodder. These students hosted a food and supplies drive for homeless veterans. They received hundreds of donations from students and staff and delivered these items to veterans in-need.
Holiday cheer is running high at G.C. Hartman Elementary School this week. From "Clash of the Carols" to "Holiday Chaos," students and adults alike have enjoyed dressing up to celebrate the holidays. The week ends with "Silent Night" (wear your comfiest pajamas) on Thursday and "Holiday Cheer" on Friday (dress in Christmas from head to toe).
Elementary students collected over 1,000 food items during their Grinch for Good Food Drive. All donations will be divided between Elysburg and Catawissa Food Banks. Thank you to elementary students and families for your generous donations!
Happy Holidays from Miss Hunter’s class! These students had the opportunity to get creative and make their own tree village.
