Eastvalley will be having a STEM day in December with all the classes working on an exciting STEM challenge in their classrooms. Fourth grade will be challenging the students to create a specific type of rollercoaster using their knowledge of force and motion. For this activity, each team (group of students) will need several paper towel tubes. Please send in your empty paper towel tubes asap. Especially over Thanksgiving when you may use more paper towel. Thank you so much for supporting us and our learning.
Wow!! What an exciting day with all the cool balloon cars coming in. We have some really cool cars. We are all so excited for race day on Thursday!!! Thank you parents for helping our students with these amazing cars.

Your students brought home a flyer today that explained our 4th grade service project. Please take a look at it and see if there is something you and your child would like to participate with. We have two children who are orphans in Honduras that we are sponsoring for the holidays. Please see the attached flyer.
The fourth grade will be hosting Chick-Fil-A night at the Eastlake Chick-Fil-A this Thursday night. All money raised will go toward offsetting 4th grade field trips. We hope you will join us and participate in the lemon squeezing contest!! See you there!!
