The class finished reading Who Stole the Wizard of Oz and has now moved on to a new mystery, Any Which Wall. This story details four friends who accidentally embark on a journey through time when they discover a magical wall. We are excited to go on this new adventure and put our detective skills to the test!

Social Studies

Our economists have been working on a business plan and prototype of a good or service they could sell to classmates. They had to create a budget breakdown, as well as predict how much profit and demand they will encounter. They’re learning firsthand how a market economy works and the roles they can have within it.
