Merry Christmas!
The amazing third grade at Leesburg all came together in a celebration of Colombian culture! The children learned about the country of Colombia and how Christmas is celebrated including “Day of the Little Candles”. This tradition includes telling for whom you light the candle and lighting them in unity. They also experienced authentic and delicious Colombian arepas and danced the Cumbia. The presentation was given in both English and Spanish and the students presented their answers in both as well. What a wonderful celebration of honoring each other! El increíble grado Tercero de Leesburg se reunió en una celebración de la cultura colombiana. Los niños aprendieron sobre el país Colombia y cómo se celebra la Navidad, incluyendo el "Día de las velitas". Esta tradición incluye decir por quién se enciende la vela y luego encenderlas todos juntos. También probaron auténticas y deliciosas arepas colombianas y bailaron cumbia. La presentación se hizo tanto en inglés como en español, y los estudiantes participaron también en ambos idiomas. ¡Qué maravillosa celebración de honrarnos los unos a los otros!

“Third graders holding their lanterns for the traditional “Colombian Day of the Little Candles’”
Leesburg second through fourth grade art students created watercolor paintings called "Sunsets and Sailboats". Students observed a demonstration showing how to mix water and pigment together for the correct consistency for a watercolor painting, while we reviewed the color wheel, and warm and cool colors. We discussed the positive vs negative effects that complementary colors can have on a painting. Students were shown how to hold and use a larger paintbrush to create horizontal lines in the sky and water and blend between colors for a realistic effect. Continuing into the second week, we reviewed the size and placement of the sailboats or pirate ships to appropriately show perspective, and discussed silhouettes prior to completing them in pencil and then finishing with Sharpie pens. Art terminology used: complement, horizontal, perspective, pigment, and silhouette.

Experience: Through our partnership with Grace College’s Lilly Center for Lakes and Streams, Leesburg 5th graders engaged with college students and environmental science professionals to learn more about our local water systems. Students used an interactive sand table to recreate topographical and bath maps of Lake Tippecanoe. With sugar cubes, wooden mallets, and vinegar, students experienced the phenomena of weathering and erosion. Students also observed and identified phytoplankton and zooplankton using microscopes. Students are eager to continue this partnership with the Lilly Center as they offer programs for every grade level!

Leesburg Elementary's Dual Language Immersion program continues to support inclusivity, which is one of four pillars in WCS's  current strategic plan.  The DLI program provides a rich language experience that opens the world to its students, exposing them to traditions, cultures, languages, and a new worldview. This program has also allowed Leesburg staff to become more diverse, hiring multiple native Spanish speakers that represent many different cultures and ethnicities.
