Author Stacy McAnulty visited Doherty

Author Stacy McAnulty visited the Doherty library to tell the pre-kindergarten through fifth grade students about her life, work, family, and the process of becoming a writer. McAnulty told the students how she went from being a mechanical engineer designing first class airline seats to being a picture, children’s, and chapter book author after her first child was born. She walked the students through how she gets the idea for, researches, and writes nonfiction books, like her Our Universe Series, which tells the stories of the planets in the solar system from the perspective of the planets.


Unit III ventures to Glen Helen

Unit III students spent three days and two nights at the Glen Helen Nature Preserve in Yellow Springs, Ohio.The students investigated the 1,000 acre preserve with naturalists, who their Doherty teachers had worked with beforehand to tailor their curriculum for the trip. There were themed hikes, animal encounters at the on-site raptor center, outdoor games, and songs and skits by the campfire.


Puppet Show for Reading Buddies

While third graders in Ivette Crichton’s language arts class were working on their storytelling skills and a reader’s theatre format, they decided to perform the story “Who’s in Rabbit’s House?” for their reading buddies. Reader’s theatre is used to help students develop reading fluency as they read roles from a script. The third graders picked a puppet show, with sound effects and a full set, to entertain their reading buddies from Lindsay Pietroski’s kindergarten class. The third graders taught their kindergarten buddies about scripts and how they rehearsed the puppet show.


Growing plants in Unit II Math

Unit II students grew pea plants from seeds as part of their Bridges Number Corner curriculum. “The students have enjoyed watching their plants grow and measuring the progress throughout the month. Everyone had green thumbs!” said Unit II teacher Sherri Linville.


Fourth grader wins piano award

Fourth grader Sajni Puri received first class honors with distinction on an international Royal Conservatory Music examination for piano. “We are so proud of Sajni, who has been taking piano at Doherty under a variety of instructors over the years. Anna Vinnitsky, our newest instructor, is off to a wonderful start and we are lucky to have her guiding the students to challenge their skills and encourage ones, like Sajni, to compete,” said Julie Brackett, who runs the enrichment programs at the Doherty Campus.
