    The 4th grade class of Mrs. Kathy Chadwick at Kaegebein Elementary celebrated "Colonial Day" on Monday, November 20th. This day is based on a class novel the students read titled "Felicity Learns a Lesson". The girls prepare the dinner meal, they make applesauce, butter and peel and mash potatoes. The boys learn lessons from hornbooks. The girls learn how to cross stitch. The boys learn about Colonial occupations and construct a sign to go with an occupation they are interested in. Both the boys and girls make soap, carve soap, write with a quill feather and ink and stencil. After lunch the girls enjoy a tea party and the boys play checkers and chess. Each year the students enjoy the authentic experience of Colonial ways.

Kaegebein PTA Awards Two Honorary Life Memberships - June 2017

    Kaegebein librarian Stephanie Pritchard and music teacher Renee Mitchki are this year's recipients of PTA Honorary Life memberships in recognition of their dedication to and support of children and youth. The awards were presented by Kaebegein PTA president Christie Lesser at the PTA Council Installation Dinner.
   To quote Mrs Lesser: "Mrs. Pritchard's official school role is as librarian, but she is active in so many other ways that impact our students, families and communities. She is very active in the Kaegebein PTA. She attends meetings, runs the cake walk on Family Fun Night, and is the lead coordinator for PARP and the author visit. Additionally, she leads the EarlyAct club, which benefits the school and community. She is always friendly and greets families by name at dismissal ttime. My daughter did not like to read and Mrs. Pritchard took time to help her find books that interest her. Her inteerst in reading immediately took off. Mrs. Pritchard impacts children every day and as a parent I am thankful she works with parents to enhance children's school experience in so many ways."
   Renee Mitchki's devotion and dedication to students is apparent the moment she enters the building until she leaves at the end of the day. Her door is always open before and after school and her classroom is a haven to those who enter. She is an inspirational teacher. By the end of third grade her students are proficient in a new language: they are able to read and write music. All her students learn how to play the recorder, which establishes a foundation for mastering any future instruments they opt to play. She makes new students from abroad feel welcome by introducing music and instruments from their native country in their class. She motivates students by providing them with meaningful lessons that connect the music curriculum to the core program using poetry, history and biographies. She collaborates with the art teacher to create a school-wide theme for the curriculum and reaches out to classroom teachers by helping with their plays as well as working with the librarian to fulfill research project requirements. In addition she has made wonderful contributions to the community by honoring veterans, by receiving grands to provide school-wide musicals , and by assisting community theater directing or conducting choral ensembles. She is truly worthy of receiving a PTA Honorary Life Membership.

Kaegebein Automated Wax Museum - March 2017

   Written by: Jeff Lipinczyk
    Step Right Up, Step Right Up! The second grade team at Kaegebein Elementary held an Automated Wax Museum on Wednesday, February 15th. The Wax Museum was a culmination of a research based project, utilizing many of the tools that our school has to offer.
   Our second graders were tasked with choosing an important figure and delving into their lives. They discovered many aspects about each person's life through the use of IPads, PebbleGo, World Encyclopedia, and print. Our students wrote reports, created Tagxedos, formed a Pic Collage, and transformed themselves into the person they were researching.
   After completing the written and technology projects, the students memorized three facts about their important figure, and brought their figure to life in our Automated Wax Museum. The students dressed up as their figure, posed like them, and with the push of a button, came to life to tell a fact about them.
   All grade levels were invited, as well as parents, teachers, and administrators. Visitors were asked to complete a compliment card as payment for their visit. Channel 7 News stopped by to record our students in the act! In the end, students walked away from this event with a taste of what true research looks like, an understanding of how hard work pays off, and an everlasting memory of their time here at Kaegebein.

"Alice's Adventures with Idioms" - February 2017

   The 4th grade classes of Kathy Chadwick and Carilyn Gallagher presented a play called "Alice's Adventures with Idioms" on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 in the Kaegebein auditorium. This very clever play was selected because it teaches students about figurative language including idioms, similes, and metaphors. The play aligns with the grade 4 common Core Learning Standards of Language including L.4.5-students, will demonstrate understanding of figurative language. Over the course of the play, a dozen songs were sung. Great job by all students!
