Groden K8 students were able to see one of nature's most amazing and unusual sights - the total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017.

 

 

“The Amazing Green Thumb,” shared some of nature’s tricks with Gordon students. The students learned about seed dispersal and the life cycle of a plant. The students also discovered the magic for themselves as they touched strange seeds, dissected a peanut, and germinated their own “magical” bean.

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

Students learned the age-old tradition of tie-dye. They also learned about the many different plants that are used to create fabrics and dyes. Students made their own tie-dye t-shirt using modern- day dyes.

 
Grandparents are our heritage and are essential members of our families and communities.  That is why a special day, National Grandparent's Day, is set aside every year to honor them.  Students had an opportunity to spend some time and eat lunch with their grandparents. Grandparents had an opportunity to tour the campus, visit classrooms, attend special presentations, and spend time with their grandchildren in their daily school setting.

The middle school students created a mini exhibition on the prehistoric reptile, Titanoboa.

Students learned that scientists have found fossilized remains from the biggest snake species ever discovered in this region. During the time that this enormous snake lived, the area now known as Cerrejón was a huge, swampy jungle where everything was warmer, wetter, and bigger than it is today.

     
     

 

The Grizzlies Reading Challenge is a six-week reading program that encourages third through fifth grade students to read outside their classroom curriculum. The students from each class with the most books read receive the opportunity to attend the Grizzlies Read to Achieve Celebration at FedExForum.
