On the kindie front...

Our kindies have been continuing learning about the properties of matter and how they change through pumpkin investigations.  We’ve been working hard on using our five senses to describe the properties and add those adjectives into our writing.  With so many fun pumpkin stories and informational texts, we’ve been in the fall spirit!  All of the classes investigated the inside of pumpkins by getting REALLY messy.  We made sure to estimate how many seeds there were in our pumpkins and practiced counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s to find out the actual amount.  Check out the book, “How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?” to revisit this learning at home!

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.
