As Floyd's KinderCamp came to a close Friday morning, 5th grade students had the honor of walking this year's kindergartners to their assigned classroom as the rest of the students and staff lined the hallway to celebrate with them. Thank you to the many adults who adjusted their schedules to spend extra time teaching lessons, expectations, routines, and friendship during KinderCamp. Thank you to our wonderful kindergarten parents for your patience and trust. We look forward to all the great things our newest school family members will do this year!
Floyd 5th graders spent some time getting to know our newest school members earlier this week. Lots of laughs and fun in the nature area!
Floyd fourth graders flagged down Mrs. Moses at lunch Thursday to express concern over a puddle with what looked like tadpoles in it that was drying up at the base of a slide. With help from Mrs. Pretzer and students willing to take on a rescue mission during recess, these living things were moved from the playground puddle to our pond. The spontaneous and caring activity was a highlight of our day.
Floyd 3rd graders in Mrs. Diaz's class worked together to make the longest chain by using just one sheet of construction paper in 30 minutes. It was a fun team building activity!
Floyd students in Mr. Gusler's 2nd grade are enjoying journaling during their nature time. They now have 'nature bags' to carry supplies in thanks to Mrs. Stevens' summer sewing project.
Mrs. Carloyn Brown, Floyd teacher and volunteer coach, would like to remind Floyd families that she is registering Floyd Cross Country runners all summer in preparation for the fall season. Please see attached for more information.

3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students have been using Rekenreks to show math thinking. 3rd and 4th grade focused on division. 5th grade used the Rekenreks to create equal groups as they converted a fraction greater than one whole into a mixed number.

They also plan to return in April with other Leadership Midland 22' members to make updates and additions to our outdoor classrooms. Thank you Rob Taylor, Shane Bradley, Robb Boerner, Dustin Neumeyer, Ryan Lee, and Tom Stoney. We truly appreciate the time and work you put into this project.
Floyd first graders have been learning how different animals move through the snow. They recently enjoyed a Critter Challenge where students created their own critters with moving mechanisms.
