Mr. Cavanagh’s 5th grade class at Cherokee Street Elementary took advantage of the gorgeous weather yesterday. Their class seized the opportunity to utilize the school's courtyard, complete with the delightful, new tree stump chairs, to engage in a reading session of their classroom novel, Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan. The students thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor learning experience which served as a refreshing break from the traditional classroom setting!

On April 3, fourth graders at Cherokee Street Elementary traveled back in time during Colonial Day. To round out their unit on Colonial America, students dressed in clothes reminiscent of the era, wearing bonnets, aprons, tricornes, knickers, tights, vests and more. They studied and researched the lives, culture, occupations and more of colonial people before preparing presentations for their classmates and parents. On Colonial Day, students shared their presentations with props and even put together skits on the various occupations and what it was like to be alive during the time period.
