Mr. Henry Arledge along with the Harrison County School Board recognizes Lizana Elementary as a High-Performing School.
Mrs. Phillips and Mrs. Bingman have been implementing a two week unit of study on the story of the American flag. The Kindergarten students have learned that the American flag is a symbol for the United States of America and that the flag’s colors stand for different things. Betsy Ross even joined the class to discuss the similarities and differences between the first flag and today’s flag.
Understanding that the American flag can be used for different things, the Kindergarten students performed in a skit entitled, “The Stars and Stripes Speak Out.” After the skit, the class made an edible American flag using a pictorial recipe. The Kindergarten students used their experiences to create various thinking maps as a bridge to informative writing activities.
On September 25, 2013, Ms. Kelley's Kindergarten class celebrated Johnny Appleseed's birthday and the beginning of Fall with Apple Day. Wearing their Johnny Appleseed "hats" and with the help of several parents, the students participated in activities including apple tasting/graphing their favorite apple, making necklaces with Apple Jacks cereal and an experiment to discover if apples float or sink. (They float!!). The students ended Apple Day with an apple snack!!
