Lausanne Junior Kindergartners have had an exciting few weeks, full of community-building experiences.
Their current unit of inquiry, “Who We Are”, has given JK students the opportunity to explore the Lausanne while gaining knowledge from their peers and a wide range of faculty and staff. During one of their most recent outings around campus, the Lower Schoolers spent the day with members from the athletics community.
At the amphitheater, the Little Lynx Cheerleaders became the teachers when they taught a cheer to the curious Junior Kindergartners and showed them different ways to exhibit school spirit.
Their next adventure involved storytime with a two-time state championship-winning football coach. During his time with the JK students, football coach Patrick Nagoski taught them about what it means to be part of a team.
The lower schoolers were further able to delve into the world of sports when they took a trip to the football field. There, they played football in the sun while donning Lausanne football jerseys given to them by seventh-grade teacher, Tom Brezina.
To wrap up their exciting day, the Junior Kindergartners spent time with the Varsity Girls Soccer team making bracelets to show their new sense of school spirit.
The JK students were able to answer many questions about themselves and the Lausanne community but the real question is who and what on campus will they see next?
