UNLESS contest/project

The UNLESS project has ended for 2016. The Enrichment classes had a number of nice submissions! Congratulations to all participants who really tried to educate others and help the red pandas. We all learned a lot! Check the Philadelphia Zoo website for further information regarding the winners! Click here to see a list of this year's winners.


Stock Market Game

 The Spring Stock Market Games ran from 02/01/2016 - 04/08/2016. This year, our students participated in two different games. Some upper level elementary students and middle school students participated in the Daily Item game and all other students competed with our state legislators in the Legislative Challenge. Teams from Chief and Beck were most successful this year and will be attending their respective recognition luncheons. You may click here to see the final ranking of your team.
Congratulations to all of the teams! 
In my opinion, you are all winning because of all you have learned from this experience! ~Mrs. Ferry
