Reading Aloud

Posted by pbouwens | Posted in News from Mrs. Bouwens | Posted on March 3, 2019

Why?

Readtothem.org shares that, “The benefits of reading aloud are remarkable! Studies have shown that reading to children helps them to listen better and longer, build better vocabularies, understand concepts better, feel positive about both books and learning, and more. When an entire school reads the same book, the buzz and excitement around the book being read increases these benefits, and there is the added joy of building community in the school family.”  This is not to mention the added benefit of spending real quality time with your children while promoting the benefits of reading and school!

Greenfield Village / Henry Ford Museum Field Trip

Thursday, October 26

We will leave school at 7:00 am. Please be to school at 6:45 am. We will return to school at 7:00 pm. 

Lunch / Snacks / Dinner

There will be a snack provided upon arrival to the museum for students and parents. There are restaurants on site. Students may buy their lunch. For pricing you can view menus at the Henry Ford Museum web site. There are also picnic tables, so a sack lunch is a good option as well. We will not be stopping to eat on the way home, so the students will need a healthy “dinner” snack for our return trip. A sealable water bottle is also a good idea for the bus.  (No pop!)

Gift Shops:

Gift shops are located in the village and museum. Students may bring money for gifts if they choose. Students will be responsible for the money they bring.

*Payment due by Tuesday, October 24.

Sleeping Bear Dunes

Posted by pbouwens | Posted in News from Mrs. Bouwens | Posted on August 7, 2011

Mr. Bouwens and I spent some time this summer  up north visiting our daughter, Annie, who lives in Sutton’s Bay. While we were there we had liberal visitation rights to her dog, Dylan. He’s our grand dog and we love to spend time with him. One day we were driving around wondering what to do and we decided to go to Sleeping Bear Dune’s scenic drive. If you’ve never been I highly recommend it! It is a beautiful place. We all had fun enjoying the sights and smells. (Dylan loves new smells.) I wanted to share a few photos to show a bit of the beauty. I hope you enjoy them.

              

 

Mining Team

Miss Burmeister and I, stayed cool this summer in the Upper Peninsula learning about Michigan history.

In this photo, we are at Cliff’s taconite mine.  The underground iron ore mines were in full operation from 1867-1967.   The upper peninsula of Michigan is rich with iron ore and the mine location along Lake Superior is the perfect location for shipping the ore to other parts of the country.

 

We are standing with a group of teachers in front of a huge truck with GIGANTIC tires.  Can you find us?
