  • January 20, 2015 - Congratulations to the Pecatonica High School Snow Sculpting Team!  The team headed out to Sinnissippi Park on Thursday, January 15, with tools of the trade such as horse brushes, machetes, hoes, spades, shovels of all sizes and any other tool that would shave, carve, shape and chisel ice. The team consisted of 4 first time sculptors and after two days of meticulous work, a train began to emerge from what started out as a 6ft tall 4ft x 4ft wide block of ice. By Saturday, the train was detailed and ready for judging. The team was advised by our excellent art teacher, Jillian Torre, and mentored by a participating adult team who would occasionally stop by to answer questions and give advice. Congratulations to Lexi Frederick, Kelsey Swanson, Charity Voskuil, and Bailey Penwell who brought home the Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition High School Division Committee’s Choice Award for their sculpture, “Off the Rails".
  • January 16, 2015 - Fun Friday Photos!  They include...Mrs. Lennox's students playing 4-corner Grammar Games.  Students read a paper for content, then answer multiple choice questions A thru D.  As the class reviews each question a few minutes later, the students go to the corners marked A,B,C & D (D is where Millie the bearded dragon lives) as these are the answers they chose on their papers.  They defend their answers and if correct, are rewarded and asked what strategy (i.e. re-reading, statements in the paragraph, process of elimination) they used to make their decision.  What a fun way to learn grammar!
  • January 15, 2015 - Third Graders Get Organized - Mrs. Schwuchow’s 3rd grade class definitely has the right idea! They took some time out of their busy schedule yesterday and cleaned and organized their desks. They were eager to show off their tidy workspaces. Every student that opened their desktop (real, not virtual lol) had a neat and clutter free work area and everything was in its place!  It will be very nice to find their materials quickly and efficiently.  It will be less stressful to prepare for learning and working. They are setting a good example of how cleaning up a work space can lead to a more productive and positive learning & working environment. 
  • January 15, 2015 - The Pecatonica 4th graders are singing the National Anthem at the Rockford Icehogs this Friday. Game time is 7:00 against Iowa Wild. 
  • January 14, 2015 - Vegetables? - Not long ago while riding the bus to a sporting contest a student-athlete witnessed her coach eating spinach as a snack. The student-athlete remarked that she would like to try spinach and eventually did. Discovering healthy and nutritious foods is a worthy goal for the new year.   “Good for you” if you're open to the experience, and perhaps you too will inspire others to try a new vegetable. 
  • January 12, 2015 - Snowman Art - The kindergarteners worked hard in the Dragonfly Art Studio recently to create great "pieces" of Snowman Art.
