Most of the classrooms at North Creek Elementary School have a buddy classroom, which is a classroom from another grade level.
Mrs. Rehmann’s kindergarten class and Mrs. Hay’s first grade class recently enjoyed time together.
Students worked on the 4 C’s with a buddy classroom.
They communicated a plan, collaborated by working with a partner to build the tallest snowman. Students used critical thinking skills to think long and hard about how to make this challenge work and used creativity to make a creative snowman.
These are all skills that we practice at North Creek as part of the Chelsea School District Portrait of a Graduate.
