Welcome to Elderton Elementary School!    No School - March 30th!  School back in session April 2!

3rd and 4th grade go to Camp Lutherlyn!

3rd and 4th Grade students were able to go to Camp Lutherlyn through an ASD Foundation Grant and a popcorn fund raiser to experience Maple Sugaring.  During their trip, students learned about the parts of a tree, and creating the inner parts, roots, leaves, and bark.  They also played a game to protect the tree from an insect and identified maple trees.

All students learned the maple sugaring process:  tapping trees, gathering sap from trees and dumping it into the sugar shack filter, boiling the sap and turning it into syrup, testing to see if it is syrup, and enjoying a pancake lunch.
