Marshville Elementary teachers aim to keep reading skills high
Statistics show that it’s vitally important that children continue to read over the summer months. “Children tend to lose reading levels over the summer if they don’t practice the skills they’ve learned in the classroom over the year,” said Marshville Elementary Principal Julia Rackley. To help students maintain their reading skills, and not lose ground, Marshville Elementary School teachers are once again taking the library to the students via an activity bus.

STEMulating Adventure along the Nautilus E/V
Children are often asked the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” On May 26, Marshville Elementary 4th graders had the horizons of their futures expanded as they were allowed to participate in a videoconference with research scientists about the Nautilus E/V.
The Nautilus E/V is a 211 foot long research ship that travels the world studying ocean life. Students were able to see videos and images from earlier expeditions that the ROVs (remote operated vehicles) aboard this vessel had conducted while on this journey.
