Read aloud with Mr. Jones

Submitted by emy.porter on Fri, 09/30/2022 - 12:24

Apple Valley was lucky to have a special visitor from the district, J. Lynn Jones, come to read to our school in September. He read books by Kerry Patterson about being kind, helping each other, and being honest. The books were enjoyed by all ages and we appreciated Mr Jones coming to share them with us.

3rd grade fieldtrip

Submitted by emy.porter on Fri, 09/23/2022 - 10:23

On Thursday, third grade had a field trip to Rowley's Red Barn. A hay wagon picked the students up at the school which they rode all the way to the farm. At the Red Barn, the students were taken by wagon to the apple orchards where they each got to pick an apple, they watched a presentation about farming, and had time to play on the farm before the wagon ride back to the school. It was a great fieldtrip for all!
