Carpenter once again finished up an exciting year with fun, engaging activities coined Memory Making Week. Homerooms had different experiences based on age and schedule. Thank you to Mrs. Stevens and Mrs. Bielenda for organizing the events! The sessions ranged from 30-60 minutes based on the activity. The sessions included were: Banjo on my Knee, Break-out Box, Cake Decorating Demonstration, Cards for Kids, Dream Big, Drone On, Footprints of the Mind, K-9 Comfort Dogs, Learning to Loom, Movement Makers, Nature Center Animals, Origami Originals, Personality Profile, Reader's Theatre, Sign Language, Strike up the Band, Summer Safety, and Touch Bass with Alan. We'd like to thank all of our guests and volunteers for making it memorable for our students. Also included in the week was our Kindergarten celebrations and two all-school assemblies. Annually we have an all-school assembly. We recognize our students in Girls on the Run, Battle of the Books and LRC helpers, Young Authors, 5th grade Track team and Patrols, Student Council, various clubs, Chorus, and student artwork. On Thursday, to finish a year, the students were provided with a three-screen assembly called BE MORE AWESOME. A para-olympian also shared his experiences of carrying the torch and encouraged our students to JUST SAY HI and talked about experiences of his disability. We closed out the year with our 5th grade walk-out as all of our K-4 students high-fived our 5th graders as they left Carpenter as their last day as our students.

Enjoy your summer!
