Classwork:

The fourth grade students will start their state reports next week with the help of Mrs. Kuehl who taught fourth grade at St. Stan's, but has since retired.  Mrs. Kuehl will join our class each week to provide a new lesson.  Mrs. Kuehl has a great passion for teaching social studies.  The research report will continue throughout the year using short assignments.  At the end of the school year, all information and assignments are gathered into one book report.  
They are truly a beautiful sight!
