Our third and fourth grade class recently held a pumpkin painting contest. Each student was given a small pumpkin to design and paint.
Finished pumpkins were displayed in the front hallway and APS students and staff were able to vote for their favorite!

Greetings! My name is Julie Daugherty and I am the 2nd grade teacher at APS. I can’t believe we are already in the last week of October. It seems like school just began! It is so fun to witness the progress each student is making as we head into 2nd quarter.
Let me share with you what is going on in our classroom…
In math, we are learning to add numbers up to 100. We are using a new math series this year and although it is challenging, I am so proud of how my students are adapting to a new way of thinking about numbers! In reading, we are learning to make personal connections to the stories that we read, summarize, describe characters and setting, and locate information in the text. In writing, we are learning to use strong verbs in our writing. We are also learning how to write a paragraph. This week, we are learning all about bats. Please enjoy some of our informational paragraphs about the bat facts we have learned.
Bats are amazing. The vampire bat is a bat that drinks blood. Bats see very well at night. Bats are hairy because they are mammals. Bats are cool animals.
