Mrs. Piercy's ClassroomStudents at CIS enjoyed a visit from author David Nieves. He shared his knowledge of reptiles with the students and talked about why it is important to share what we know with others. He talked about the Six Traits of Writing and how to take a broad idea and narrow it down to a topic that is manageable. He told students that when they add their own voice to their writing, they make it fun for others to read. Students enjoyed listening to his stories and seeing his interesting reptiles.
Beginning of the Year
Mrs. Hoffman's ClassroomWelcome back to school! We have enjoyed several weeks of school and we're starting to get into the swing of things. The students have been working hard getting to know a new building, new playground, new staff, and new routines. It's been a great couple of weeks as we continue to learn about each other.
We also made Kool-Aid pickles by adding cherry Kool-Aid and sugar to a jar of dill pickles. After they have been refrigerated for a week, we will eat them. Koolickles are a popular treat in areas in the southern United States, so why not in Nebraska too!

Students took advantage of the cool morning and got together for a game of kickball.
A new sprinkler system was installed right before school started. The students are looking forward to being able to play in the grass. In the past, our playground area looked more like a sand lot. We are spreading the kids out to minimize the pressure on the fragile lawn. Despite the recent surge in temperature the lawn is trying to bounce back.
CIS students scored very will on the NeSA Writing last year in 4th grade. 80% of the students met or exceeded the standards compared to 69% of the students across the state. We are proud of our students but understand maintaining these scores is not always easy. NeSA Reading scores were closer to the state average with 79% of 3rd grade students meeting or exceeding the standards compared to 77% of the state.
This week has been a lot of fun! We have enjoyed reuniting with old friends as well as making new ones. We have also reviewed rules from the classroom to the playground. Today we reviewed bus safety. Children learned how to evacuate a bus safely! We would like to thank all the bus drivers for keeping us safe across the district.
