It is hard to believe that the school year is coming to a close and our fifth graders will be moving on to new homes next year.
The William Home has been busy. Last weekend we took a day trip to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to visit the Washington Pavillion and the Great Plains Zoo. The weather tried not to cooperate at first but by the time we were ready to get to the zoo it had cleared up for us.
The Pavillion is a very interesting and educational place and the girls are able to do a lot of hands on activities dealing with science. They really enjoyed getting into the tornado demonstrator where they were able to feel 78 mile per hour winds and their hair really told the true story.
The zoo is always a great experience and we spent a lot of time feeding the animals in the petting zoo area. We have had a great year with this group of fourth and fifth graders. Though it is always sad to say goodbye to our fifth graders, we are just as excited for the girls that will be moving up next year.
Hello everyone, this is Mike from the William Home (4th and 5th grade girls). It is hard to believe, but we have started the fourth quarter of school here at St. Joseph’s Indian School!
The last time I was here I told you about the William Home and their walking. Well, we made our goal of walking 10,000 laps with a day to spare. The girls did a good job of getting their laps in and finishing what they started. 10,000 laps is equal to 500 miles.
As we set our sights on the last quarter of school we are also preparing to take a day trip with the girls. We are very excited about going to Sioux Falls. We will visit the zoo and the Washington Pavillion to see the science exhibit and the I-Max Theater.
The weather has also allowed us to get some outside play time, and softball season will be starting in the next couple of weeks.
We hope you are all enjoying our blogs as much as we enjoy keeping you up to date on the things we do at St. Joseph’s!
