Caught in The Web

Captain Strong Elementary School

This month, we've caught Captain Strong Elementary School in the web. Located in Battle Ground, Washington, Captain Strong also deserves mention for having one of the coolest school names we've ever heard. The third to fifth grade students at Captain Strong are serving some exciting resources about their classroom project work. Particularly, the students in Mr. Codi's and Miss Sevier's Room 18 are having fun with Castles. They have been studying feudal England, so they built castles out of cardboard and other common classroom building materials. A favorite is Sherrie's. She built her castle with popsicle sticks. The experience, according to Sherrie, taught her that "castles are easy to collapse."

Room 18 also keeps a Gravy list of websites. As they locate interesting websites, the students add them to the list. You may find something useful for yourself.

The most exciting work, however, is the Salmon Project. Each year the students at Captain Strong raise 500-1,000 coho salmon. The online project was designed by the students to teach other students about their pacific northwest salmon. They offer extensive information about a wide variety of salmon. These kids know more about salmon than most adults!

You'll also find Where's Baldo on the Elementary Page. Sponsored by Captain Strong, Where's Baldo offers a series of clues to help find Baldo, a hair-challenged world traveler and "quite a man indeed."

There's plenty to do and always something happening at Captain Strong Elementary School. Be sure to visit soon.
