Third graders are learning a bit of botany this year. Starting in the classroom, they learned about seeds, germination, pollination, photosynthesis, and what conditions are needed for plants to grow. In Science Lab, the students had the opportunity to plant lima beans, peas, popcorn, or kidney beans.
To really ignite interest for her students, science specialist Deborah Landon wanted to give them the genuine thing...so she bravely went out to the Deerwood Canal and scooped up a few jars of water and some of the plant life growing in it.
Our JCDS students have capped off their academic studies in areas as diverse as the Rainforest, Greek Mythology, Habitats in Nature, and Mesoamerican civilizations with some exciting arts projects during their most recent Deep Dives.
To cap off their unit on Ancient Greece, the 5th graders took to the field in a time-honored JCDS tradition, the Greek Olympics. Students participated in relay races, discus throwing, shot put, and good ole' tug-of-war to see which team would emerge as victors.
The Young Artist Forum is a grand exhibit that includes at least one art piece by every student at JCDS. Opening day on March 16 was very special because the older students got to tour the exhibit with their "buddies" in the lower grades.
Incoming Head of School, Mr. Chris Johnson, visited JCDS in January. He spent a day meeting with board members, administrators, and faculty members as part of the process of learning more about our school.

Our 5th grade students recently got the opportunity to walk in a 6th grader's shoes during Step-In Day. They were listened and participated as they learned about the advantages and privileges that a 6th grader at JCDS enjoys.
