Second Grade is “Coming to America”

Dressed in t-shirts adorned with international flags and symbols, New Garden Elementary School’s second grade students presented songs, reports, and brochures reflecting their study of “Coming to America.” It was a month devoted to a study of foreign countries and the life-changing journeys of immigrants coming to America.

With a focus on non-fiction text, the students secured interesting facts and data, shared individual reports and brochures. During music classes, the children practiced a variety of songs from the countries they studied, and with the help of parent volunteers simple white t-shirts were painted with the flags of many different lands. The culminating activity was a presentation for parents followed by ever popular snacks. The multi-generational smiles throughout each classroom were a fine tribute to a job well done!

February Student Spotlight

“Without hesitation,” said Mrs. Carol Davidson, “Yes, I think Taya Wuchter should be recognized for February’s Student Spotlight.” Here’s what her teacher had to say about her.

Taya is in my third grade class this year, and she is wonderful. Taya is hard working, helpful, and always does her best. No matter what the assignment is, Taya is hard at work. She asks questions, takes risks, and checks over her assignments to make sure it is the best she can do. You can tell that she takes pride in her work and wants to do well.

Taya is also helpful. She is more than willing to help other classmates by answering questions, explaining a problem, or sitting with them to buddy read. She always has positive things to say about her friends and goes out of her way to make everyone feel special.

In addition to being a star student in my class, Taya is very active at home playing with her five siblings. Taya wrestles for Kennett, and has won many matches and tournaments throughout the past four years. In addition, she plays on the Blue Demons field hockey team. Although she is athletic and loves to play, Taya’s favorite thing to do is read!

What I love most about Taya is her willingness to do whatever is needed without wanting anything in return. She is an amazing student and I feel lucky to have her in my classroom. Thanks Taya for being such a wonderful role model for others.
