Welcome back to a short week! We have a few things happening this week.
First and foremost, we are heading to our 2nd field trip to the Smith Center. The topic of the trip is Innovation Nation, so it will be a great time!. Here is a brief synopsis of the trip:
– Based on the two-time Emmy Award-winning CBS Saturday morning TV show, this brand new production brings to life world-changing innovations. The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation – Live! will inspire students with entertaining and educational stories about yesterday and today’s visionaries and innovators – highlighting major turning points in the past and present that influenced the fields of science, technology, engineering, math, the environment and social justice. Like the popular TV show, this production will stimulate students’ imagination and creativity.
Yearbooks are on presale for $20 so order them now before the price goes up to $25!
We have our ongoing Penny Wars where students are raising money for the 5th grade rafting trip. The grade level that brings in the most money will get extra recess! So far, 4th grade is in the lead! The 5th grade teachers and students would like to thank everyone for helping with this. It ends on the 31st.
A few flyers have gone out regarding AstroCamp! We have a few slots left and need them filled. Please hurry into the office to pay your $100 deposit to secure your child’s place. It is a great opportunity to send your child to a safe learning environment where they will get hands on lessons on space and Earth sciences. We will be doing activities like zip lining, rocket building and launching, and stargazing. Don’t miss this opportunity! If you have questions or concerns, you can ask me or Mrs. Richard. We’ll be happy to help you out with this.
We have a few before and after school activities coming up. One is a STEAM night where students can participate in experiments and activities. Another is the Alaskan Husky STEM night this Thursday where students get to frolic and mingle with friendly Husky dogs. A few other nights like STEM night in February and Literacy night in March are scheduled as well. There may be a charge for some of these activities, as a few of them are fundraisers, so please be on the lookout for the flyers.
