Mrs. Donovan

Meet Mrs. Donovan! Not only does she help us daily in the classroom but also with perfecting our handstands outside the classroom. Speaking of outdoor classrooms, Erin Donovan is spearheading the MDES Garden and Greenhouse Project. As a Master Gardener she will be implementing Science lessons this Spring - the students are thrilled! Thank you Mrs. Donovan for helping to shape healthy bodies, healthy minds.

April Showers brings LOTS of reading! Students are taking a break from Non-Fiction to delve back into our favorite chapter series. How exciting when students make connections from places we've studied to places our characters venture to. Who knew Flat Stanley traveled to Mount Rushmore?!
