Fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-graders have an opportunity to participate in the school’s robotics club, an after-school STEM program. Not only does it allow each student’s creativity to blossom and teach technology and engineering, but it provides critical thinking and team-building skills.
Every teacher at Mt. Loafer Elementary, is committed to weaving the arts and curriculum together to create a richer and more lasting learning experience for students. Mt. Loafer sixth grade is currently learning of the Ancient Egyptians. Take a peek at their beautiful watercolor pictures of Ancient Eygptian Profiles!
"Wow! I was so impressed the the quality of comments made by your students at Mt. Loafer," said Mr. Parkinson after presenting an assembly teaching students about internet safety. We love our students and are grateful they have been well taught at home about proper internet practices. Students added to that knowledge today from an excellent presentation from NETSMARTZ. Our goal is to prepare our precious students to live safely in this world as well as the 'world wide web'.
Fifth Grade students love science at Mt. Loafer! Four powders all look alike..... BUT, as Mr. E from Discovery Garden Children's Museum showed students, they do not all act alike. Why, well it's all because matter matters and chemicals that look alike react differently. Students loved the hands on learning experiences that taught them about physical and chemical changes and also solids, liquids, and gases.
We, the People of Mt. Loafer..... love our constitution! Students have learned interesting facts about our constitution in preparation for CONSTITUTION DAY on Thursday, Sept. 17. For example, did you know that President George Washington and congress established the first national Thanksgiving Day on November 26, 1789. The reason for the holiday was to give “thanks” for the new Constitution. A flag with the pictures of all the citizens of Mt. Loafer will remind students of our constitution as they pass by it.
Sixth grade students are the natural leaders at Mt. Loafer and this year is no exception. Students learned more about working together by participating in some awesome team building activities with their equally awesome teachers! We look forward to 6th grade leading the way for teamwork at our world class school.
