South Haven Elementary

School Creed

I am a South Haven Elementary School Student.

I have great expectations for myself.

I accept the challenge to become the best I can be.

I was born a winner and I will not allow myself to think
of failure.

For those of you who chose to fail, this is your right, but
you do not have the right to take others with you.

Yesterday’s failures are behind me.

Today’s successes are now before me.

I will make today the very best day of all,

For this day begins the rest of my life.

Student Creed

We value one another as unique and
special individuals.

We will NOT laugh or make fun of a
person’s mistakes.

We will use good manners, saying
please and thank you, excuse me, and
let others go first.

We will cheer each other to success.

We will help one another whenever
possible.

We will recognize every effort and
applaud it.

We will encourage each other to do our
best.

We will practice virtuous living, using
the life principles.

Elementary School

Great Day of Play

On Friday, May 5th, grades 1 through 5 spent their whole day at the Exploration Place in Wichita learning about different sciences. Many of the kids got to play with different things and experiment to learn.

In the first grade class, Aaron Chase and Dax Dark’s favorite exhibits were the tornado simulator machine. It was all of the first graders first time visiting, except Dax, it was his eleventh.
Second grade’s Clay favorite part was playing games with his classmates. He enjoyed going to the Exploration Place and would go there again. Clay’s classmate, Seth liked to play the games they organized for his group.

May and Ellie of third grade really enjoyed searching for dinosaur bones and making pictures with simple shapes. It was their first time for many of the other third graders as well.

Fourth grade’s Delilah Williams and Mike Newberry loved the playground area. Denise Feugate enjoyed exploring the museum because it was her first time.

Fifth grade enjoyed the electricity presentation, while Brooke Brown was available to volunteer and do cool things with the power. Cole Theurer really liked the flight simulator of the Wright Brothers first airplane.

The Adventures at the Zoo

The South Haven Preschool and Kindergarten went to the Sedgwick County Zoo on May 3rd. We asked some kids from each class about the things they saw and their experience at the zoo.

Preschool students Natalie Betzen and Madison Reed’s favorite part was the lions. Josie Metzinger, their fellow classmate, enjoyed seeing the giraffes.

In the kindergarten class, Brayden and Daylen their favorite animals were the alligators, but they also liked going through the rainforest section of the zoo to see the animals there.  Brayden favorite part of the day is when his teacher found him a quarter. Carly Heater really enjoyed the tiger and the North America section of the zoo.

They all enjoyed getting to experience the exotic animals and spending time with their classmates. Preschool and kindergarten had a great time at the zoo.

Elementary Wax Museum

The third and fourth graders participated in a wax museum on March 1st. Family and student were welcome to walk around to look and listen to the students presentations in the South gym. They worked really hard on learning new things about their characters and preparing and memorizing speeches.

The kids really enjoyed dressing up and coloring the portraits of their characters.

The third graders had a theme of famous people like Whoopi Goldberg, while the fourth graders kept it to Kansans like Dwight D. Eisenhower.

They didn't really enjoy standing for an hour but they enjoyed presenting their speeches that also consisted of a tri fold folder, timeland, and a biography of their life. Great job third and fourth graders.
