On March 2nd our third grade was treated to two fantastic presentations.
Guatemala-Marilee Brooks (Kaylee’s mom)
Mexico-Joe Memmott (Eliza’s dad)
Our third grade learned about the beautiful land, people, dress, food and music of Guatemala and Mexico.
It is not too late to sign up for the Kid's Marathon. The purpose of the kids marathon program is to teach students the benefits of an active lifestyle, help students incorporate fitness into their daily/weekly routine, teach students about goal setting, and have students feel a sense of accomplishment as they complete the marathon distance (26.2 miles) and receive a finisher medal.
We loved having students and parents for pastries and donuts to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day!
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)
