The second grade read a story on jellyfish during their reading curriculum. Mrs. Welinski's cousin, Jay Walker, works at the Duluth Aquarium where they raise moon jellies. He face-timed Mrs. Welinski and Mrs. Stafford's classes and was able to answer questions they had about the Duluth Aquarium and jellyfish. It was a great experience for our second graders!

Becker Primary School students have focused on being collaborative and kind on the playground this fall. With the recent snowfall, Mr. Christensen challenged students during a Pack Meeting to work on shared snow sculptures incorporating as many students as possible. Our students began working on an igloo village that same day and the project continues to grow. Hurray for creativity, kindness and of course, snow!
