Week of 12/3

Welcome back! I hope everyone is having a great week!

Please remind your child to bring in a winter coat now that the weather is getting cooler. I want all of the students to be nice and warm as they are playing outside.

Today we had our Brooks and Branch program to teach the students all about how to take care of the environment. The watched a short puppet show and then were able to ask the presenters questions. The students did an excellent job showing their best Assembly procedures.

If your child would like to learn more about completing a Science Fair Project, they can stay after school from 2:15-3:15 on December 11th and January 8th for help. Your child will meet in the STEM lab where teachers will be ready to help them with whatever they need help with. Please be sure to send in a note on how your child will go home that day.
