  • Penguin Museum Opens for Parents

    Students in Mrs. Cardona's first grade class held a Penguin Museum for their families. They each researched a breed of penguin and made a diorama. Every child in the class earned $4.50 at home so they could ‘adopt’ 2 Little Blue Penguins from Australia through the Phillip Island Penguin Foundation.

  • Trout-in-the-Classroom

    Primrose students visited a science classroom at Somers High School to see Trout-in-the-Classroom project. Trout in the Classroom is an environmental education program developed by a Somers parent. Students in grades K-12 raise trout from eggs to fry, monitor tank water quality, study stream habitat, and learn to understand the importance of conservation. Sometime this spring the trout will be released in Somers.

  • Living the Three R’s

    Many Primrose classrooms used the days following Earth Day, or Green Week, to continue exploring the many ways we should respect our environment. Students made crowns highlighting the importance of water as a natural resource. Other classes played Earth Day games and sang songs celebrating The Three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Students discussed their families’ environmentally friendly habits i.e.: turning off the water when brushing teeth, using reusable shopping bags, and recycling cans and bottles for money at the store. Over the announcements and at Morning Meeting, students heard and brainstormed tips to make their lives “greener” in big and small ways. Building connections from school to home to the real-world creates enduring understanding of what it is to be a citizen of the world.

  • First Grade Makes K-9 Friends

    Primrose first-graders got a look behind the scenes at how police dogs detect explosives. They met Labrador Retrievers Flora, Elwood and Brooklyn, along with their human friends Officer Frank Pagliuca, PO Jimmy O'Meara and Detective Anthony Cucinell. The dogs showed the kids their tricks, including how they could pick out the soda can with the (non-dangerous) chemicals inside. Thanks to our Resource Officer Brian Pavletich for organizing this fantastic assembly!
