Pineapple Harvest


In November 2017, the Greenhouse students went on a field trip to a pineapple plantation. Each family was given a pineapple plant to take home. After many months, some of the pineapples have been harvested and eaten. Yum!

Group picture on November 17, 2017 with the pineapple plants.

Another family said, ” We ate our pineapple a few weeks ago. It was small, but really one of the nicest pineapples we’ve had…no picture though.”

The Santos Family planted the top of this pineapple after it was eaten, so now they have 2 pineapple plants.

So thrilled that our students can experience the unique tropical growing experiences in Africa.

Class Pictures — Second Semester


As is the case in many transitional communities, our roster of students changes sometimes from month to month. So it is hard to know how to take a class picture. Here are the class pictures from the end of second semester for the 2018-2019 school year.

6th Grade – Mrs. Lane
5th grade – Mrs. Lane
3/4 Grade – Mrs. Schmidt (Mrs. Penkoff not pictured)
2nd Grade – Miss Smith
Kindergarten and 1st Grade – Miss Smith (Mrs. Roettele not pictured)

3/4 Grade Pizza Biographies


The 3/4 grade class has been reading biographies this quarter. Each student chose a different person to read about and study. After they read the books, they did a “Pizza Biography” about their person. A local pizza shop donated boxes for them to use for their reports.

At the end of the unit, (May 4th) the students had a field trip to “La Pizzeria” to celebrate their accomplishments and to show the owners their projects.

Traffic was so light they had some extra time, so they stopped at Club Hippique to see some horses on the way home.
