Many thanks to our Food Services department for the yummy locally grown apples! We were given these to celebrate "Farm to School Month".
* Thank you to all who purchased books for our class at the Book Fair!! We are so excited to read them all!
* Remember, Wed. 10/24 & Thurs. 10/25 are early dismissal days for Parent Conferences. The students are dismissed at 1:05. I can't wait to share all they've been learning with you!
Boy, did we have a busy week! I am so proud of the kids for how hard they worked and how helpful they were while I was out. Many thanks to Mrs. Lamb, Mrs. Gersz and to Mrs. Ferrera for keeping things moving and having a great time with the kiddos!
We learned about Christopher Columbus and what a brave explorer he was, learned about fire safety from our local firefighters, and even met Mrs. Burt's new puppy, Hank!
In our study of the weather, we learned that meteorologists use tools to help them predict the weather. We made a wind gauge, or anemometer, to learn the direction and relative speed of the wind! We noticed times where the air was still, when there was a little wind and even felt some good wind gusts!
The PTO sponsored a wonderful Cultural Council on mindfulness today. We learned about different tools to help calm us when we are feeling frustrated, stressed or sad, like deep breathing, yoga, sending out positive thoughts to the world, coloring, etc. We learned about words like respect and empathy, too. All this while dancing and giggling!
