Fifth Grade Students Give Back

The 5th grade students are giving back to New Town by working on the flower and tree bed by the bus lot. They are planting two Maple trees and many flowers, shrubs and herbs. Every year, 5th grade students give back by planting greenery in different locations around the school. It is a way for them to say “Thank You” for their memories and years spent at New Town Elementary.  All students who participated will be given a leaf to add to the “Give Back Tree” which will be located outside of the cafeteria.

Grab Your Passport and Pack Your Suitcase Second Grade

Have you ever wanted to go on a travel adventure around the globe?  All second graders at New Town experienced the globe as armchair travelers this month.  We set our compasses for a global challenge with the help of Google Earth.  Students navigated their way around the planet and solved brain teasing puzzles to discover a final, top-secret destination!  Some of the amazing destinations we visited were:  London, Paris, Ancient Rome, Tokyo, Ancient Egypt, the Himalayas, the Great Barrier Reef, Tanzania, New York City, the Amazon Rainforest, and New Delhi.   We didn’t really travel back in time to Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt; instead we explored the modern places and zoomed in to see the Coliseum in Rome and the Pyramids in Egypt.  All this fun with the help of an amazing book called The Great Global Challenge  with Google Earth by Clive Gifford.
