Project Showcase

Our students can't wait to share all their learning at our Program Finale! Have a look at all the hard work they have done.

Writing Across the Curriculum

5th graders in Ms. Dixon's class have been applying their knowledge of scientific concepts through creative writing. From raps to fiction, students explained science with a twist!

Visit to Polymer Science

Today our 6th & 7th graders visited the Polymer Science Department at Southern Miss to explore careers in science.

Fourth Grade Fun


Ms. Williams' 4th graders learned about the various types of fractions by adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators.  They then turned fractions into decimals and determined whether fractions were equivalent.  Finally, students learned geometrical shapes and created a collage of real world geometrical shapes found in magazines. What a great real world connection! 


In Science, students learned the three states of matter and explored chemical and physical changes.  Students used vinegar, baking soda and a balloon to make a gas that blew up the balloon.  They also combined cornstarch, water, and food coloring to make a mixture that was a solid and a liquid.

Getting Creative in 3rd Grade
