Card Stacking

🏰🃏 Building brilliance at Arboretum Elementary School! Our 4th grade #WaunakeeWAY students took on the challenge of card stacking during their Genius Hour, and the results are nothing short of amazing! 🌟 Who knew learning could be this much fun? 🚀

Early Riser Reader

Students in kindergarten through second grade and their families enjoyed reading a book and breakfast treat before school! Thank you for encouraging the love of books and reading!

1st Trimester Celebration

Students celebrated all of their hard work for the first trimester of the school year! Students enjoyed a pajama day with board games, a book swap, and a movie! 


Kindergarten guidance classes at Arboretum Elementary School have been practicing giving "I messages" to one another. We pretended to have imaginary conflicts with our stuffed animal friends and each student got to practice sharing an I feel message to one another. Look at all the new friends we made while learning wonderful communication skills!
