We are almost on the home stretch! Kindergarten and middle school graduations are today and then the rest of the week should be downhill as we head toward summer. There are still openings in some of the summer camps so check in the office for details!
New honey bees have arrived on campus & thankfully, there is no need to fear stings! Honey bees only leave their hives to gather nectar and pollen and will only sting to protect their hive.
Don’t confuse them with yellow jackets-they’ll be so upset!
HMS looks forward to selling honey in mid to late July! Come by and see the hives in action!
Two new hives of Italian bees and their queens will be added to our hives Wednesday! Stay tuned for pictures!
After a class study of the four major Ancient River Civilizations (Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, and India), Upper El students worked in small self-selected groups to research and present their findings on other early civilizations including Aztecs, Incas, Mayans, Greeks, Romans, Australian Aborigines, Vikings, and the feudal Japanese. Each group created a tri-fold board to showcase their research. Each group also provided a snack representative of or inspired by their selected civilization. Lower Elementary and Middle School students were our guests for the Early Civilizations Cultural Fair.
