BES 5th Grade Field Trip BES 5th Grade Field Trip

BES fifth graders took a trip to the Nelson County Landfill and the Guthrie Opportunity Center on Monday. Students learned many interesting facts about the landfill, and while the 3 Rs were discussed (reduce, reuse, recycle), they found out that the most important is to REDUCE the amount of garbage we send to the landfill. At the Guthrie Opportunity Center, students were able to see their recycling program and specifically what items can be recycled there. They were then able to also take a tour to see the many opportunities the GO Center provides. What great trip--it was informative and it provided inspiration to be an active citizen in our community!

BES Book Towers BES Book Towers

BES third graders have been working on book towers in reading with Mrs. Carrico. Each time students finish reading a book, they write a summary of it and turn it in to be graded. If their summary is free of errors, they fill out a book tower form which includes the title and genre, as well as a rating assigned by the student. When students complete four book tower forms, they get to eat lunch with Mrs. Carrico and two friends! Students really like book towers because they get rewarded for reading, they enjoy the feeling of accomplishment, and they love spending time with their teacher and friends eating lunch!!

Mrs. DeWitt and Mrs. Wimpsett took their second grade classes on a field trip to Kroger and Fresh in Bardstown this week. Students are learning about running a business as part of their project-based learning, and the trip’s focus was marketing. Students learned about the use of language and color in advertisements, as well as characters to promote products. Store managers also discussed product placement and customer experience, but both stores emphasized word-of-mouth as their best advertisement! A big thanks to both stores for hosting our students!!

Bloomfield Elementary Story Writing BES Story Writing

BES first graders are writing stories about their families. Each first grade class created a parent survey to learn about their interests and things they like, and also about things they did when they were kids. Next, families began sending in pictures, and now students are using the photos to write stories about themselves and their families. Some third graders have even buddied up with first grade to help with writing. They have learned a lot and are also having a lot of fun!

The E.L.I. Project The E.L.I. Project

Bloomfield Elementary School Beta student Eli Pyle is very busy with his service project. Called the ELI Project (E = engage with your community, L = love everyone, I = inspire others to do the same), the project is two-fold--service to others, but also inspire others to act. Eli has partnered with Landmark of Bardstown Nursing and Rehabilitation Center to grant wishes for its 80+ residents. Working with his contact at Landmark, Gail Brothers, he is already off to a good start granting wishes--he helped reunite a resident with his daughter who he hasn’t seen for years, and they celebrated their October birthdays together!
