Take a journey through the animal kingdom with us and . The first grade is studying Polar Animals in social studies. They each selected an animal and did research, took notes, and made a drawing of their animal using books and online used  Chatterpix for Kids app  to demonstrate what they learned A special thanks to our Intern and alumni Kendall Fronabarger (Class of ) for her help with this project.
