I can’t believe it’s that time already….back to school!!
I will be working in my classroom this week on Wednesday (8/20) from 11-4 and I could use some help to prepare for the upcoming school year! If your child would like to help me out, I will provide lunch, some snacks, and drinks! They can volunteer for the whole time or for an hour or two…
Please let me know if your child is planning on coming in so I know how much food to get for lunch.

Wow!! Our pig heart/lung dissection was amazing! The students did such a great job staying on task, working together as a team, and teaching others what they were learning! I loved watching and listening to your kids explain to other students from Kindergarten through 4th grade about the heart and lungs and their functions. Thank you to ALL who came to help set up, assist students, and clean up! It is GREATLY appreciated!!!

The past 2 weeks we have been learning about calculating volume of rectangular prisms! The kids have been having fun building various rectangular prisms and then calculating the volume of each of the figures.
