We had a wonderful day celebrating science! Mrs. Shepherd's and Mr. Scoubes' fourth grade classes invited Mrs. Wilson's and Mrs. Taylor's first grade classes to participate in some STEM activities! Our goal was to build the tallest tower (some of us had straws, some had cups, and some only had spaghetti noodles!). Some towers even had to hold an egg for 15 seconds! It was exciting to see our students work together and create new, bright ideas. We all developed a better appreciation of science in action!
Mrs. Shepherd's class had an "Egg"celent Science Day! We worked together to create egg towers. Our mission was to build the tallest and strongest tower that could hold an egg for 15 seconds! We only had two that went splat! We were so excited we almost missed lunch! Mrs. Shepherd's class loves STEM activities!
Friday was Nursery Rhyme Day in Mrs. Eckhardt's kindergarten classes. Students picked their favorite nursery rhyme, and came dressed in a simple costume, prepared to tell it to the class. From Humpty Dumpty and Jack Be Nimble to Little Miss Muffet and Hickory Dickory Dock all of the kindergarteners did a great job telling their rhymes, and everyone even tried bravely "Curds and Whey"
Mr. Scoubes class was able to witness history today by watching the inauguration of President Trump as he was being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Students were able to see former presidents, congressmen, senators and many others that help run our country. They witnessed how the change of power happens and how a democracy works. We are honored to be Americans. Thank you Mr. Scoubes also for serving in the military and helping keep us safe and free!
