Big Weather comes to Douglas!
WTVD meterologist, Don Schwenneker, came to Douglas to talk with the 5th graders about weather patterns, forecasting and natural disasters.
Reflections - Our Reflections Contest participation was a huge success this year. We had 48 participants and 57 entries. The students celebrated their hard work at Mo's Art Party today at school. Students from different grade levels worked together to create their own canvases in the style of Piet Mondrian. This was so much fun!!!
