THE CAMPAIGN:
Students will be asking their
parents and businesses to take
the OneLessStraw pledge

OUR MISSION:
The OneLessStraw campaign strives to educate the public
about the dangers of single use plastic straws, its effects on
our health, our environment, and our oceans.
PARTNERS:
We have over 100 global partners joining us in this
campaign. Please visit our partners page.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Join us to help eliminate plastic drinking straws from our
landfills, our streams, our oceans, and our beaches.
• Take the OneLessStraw Pledge.
• Encourage your favorite business or school to take the
pledge and to only provide plastic straws on request.
Also ask for them to use biodegradable or reusable options.
• Become a Sponsor of the OneLessStraw pledge campaign.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP:
500 million plastic straws are used and discarded every day
in the United States alone. That’s 175 Billion a year filtering
into landfills and littering the oceans.

Ancona Duck Eggs

Mrs. Richardson’s class has twelve Ancona Duck eggs incubating in her classroom. This particular type of duck is becoming endangered. We hope to have ducklings before the end of the month. We are eagerly awaiting the ducklings arrival.  All students are welcome to come by and see the eggs as we count down the days.

This process will enhance our science curriculum standards for “Living Things” in the 4th nine weeks.

FIRE SAFETY VILLAGE FIELD TRIP

Blackwell’s Second Grade students will be going to the Cobb Safety Village on Thursday, April 12th. Please be on the lookout for your child’s permission slips and homework activities that will be coming in their weekly folders. The field trip is of no cost to our students. They must have a sack lunch from home or purchase one here at Blackwell.  The grade level will have a classroom visit from a Cobb Firefighter on March 26th to prepare for the field trip.

STEAM NIGHT AND ART HAPPENINGS

Hello Blackwell Families! You may have heard about the art show that is in combination with our STEAM Night, scheduled for March 29th. Over the past couple of years, I have linked a video to each student’s artwork. The video is a short presentation of your child’s artist statement that gives you a little insight into either the process they went through to make the picture or what the picture is supposed to be about (or possibly even both)! This entire process does require the use of an application called Aurasma. I would like to offer to link videos to your child’s artwork again this year. However,  I am only doing so by request! Please submit the necessary information via the link below. It is okay to complete just 1 form for multiple children at Blackwell. If you do not want the video process for your child’s artwork, you do not have to respond at all! If you have any questions, you may certainly direct them to [email protected]. Thank you!

And also, we have had some people begin to sign up to help with the hollander paper-making machine. However, there are still many days left that we need help. It is the type of activity that the help is necessary. Without the help, we simply will not be able to do the activity. If you have been thinking about signing up, but just haven’t done it yet, please go ahead and get your name on the list 🙂

 

In art class, we have a big paper-making unit coming up in March. In order to pull it off, Ms. McKeehan will need some volunteers in the class. We have the hollander machine coming to visit our art classroom. It repurposes cloth material into paper pulp. If you would like to see it in action you can check out the video link below.
