Our class has just finished learning all about gravity. We learned about scientists and did some experiments, we did gravity art, we tried to build marshmallow towers that stood up agains gravity and we flew paper airplanes. Everyone had fun! Here is what some of our students had to say:
"I loved the paper airplane experiment. We learned about why gravity does not pull an airplane down." (Cambrie)
"My favorite thing was when we did the gravity art page. I learned that not everything always falls straight down." (Ryker)
The space center that I went to in Alpine District, was one of the best places that I have ever been. I went on a field trip with the whole 6th grade. The ship that I got was the Galileo. The name of our mission was Cold Hearted. It was a lot of fun. The job that I got was to be the tactical, who is in charge of the weapons and the shields of the ship. But the tactical is not the only job; you can get the messenger, the captain, the engineer, the operations, ambassador, first officer, and the helm (the pilot).

Over the weekend I was able to watch some of the Olympic events. I have always looked forward to the Olympics—not just because of my love of sports—but because of the dedication of the athletes and the sense of unity we all feel as people from all over the world come together to compete. I hope all of you are enjoying it as wellJ.
Fifth and Sixth grade students participated in the science fair last week. The students worked hard learning about the scientific method and applying it to an interesting topic. The best part was seeing the students excited about what they learned! Congratulations to our winners and good luck at the District Science Fair!
It's time once again to recognize some amazing Mustangs. We have so many students that are acting like superheroes everyday. They work hard, they are kind, they think of others, and they do their best. Congratulations to all of our student superheroes.
We also want to congratulate our amazing teacher superheroes- Ms. Thomas (3rd) and Ms. Kenison (4th). We appreciate their hard work and the kindness they show to all that they work with. They are awesome!
A big thanks and congratulations to all of the students who participated in our school Science Fair last week.
