Kindergarten Students Sing About Leadership

The students at Indian Trail Elementary have been learning how to be leaders at school and in their daily lives.  They have learned about the seven habits from “The Leader in Me” by Steven Covey,   and “The 7 Habits of Happy Kids” by Sean Covey.  All of the kindergarten students from ITES gave a music concert on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 to show what they know.  Students from each kindergarten class explained each habit and how they could reach that goal.  Then everyone sang a song about each habit.  The songs were You Can Count on Me, Think Before You Act, Follow the Habits, Compromise, Show You Understand, Teamwork, and Good Habits.  ITES students are becoming great leaders by synergizing and being proactive.

Fourth Grade Takes on the Old North State Capitol

 On Thursday, March 26, about 128 of our fourth graders went to visit the capital of NC, Raleigh. We took charter buses, leaving VERY early, and stayed all day. It was an eventful trip. We visited the NC Museum of Natural Science, the NC History Museum, the Legislative Building, and the Capitol Building. We also had Chick-Fil-A cater and deliver our lunch to us!
Our first stop was the Science Museum. When interviewing Chris Creech from Mrs. Chandler’s class, he said, “The Science Museum was the best. It has a bunch of dinosaur bones and other real animals displayed in their natural habitat. There is a bridge that you can go over to a high tech section and see guys in labs examining bones. There is a kids’ lab that lets you do real science experiments, and you can hold a live tarantula! It turns out it’s the same type of tarantula as the boy in Spider Boy has, a Chilean Rose tarantula.”
