In Science Lab class we have started the Astronomy unit. I talked about the Space Station and how it can be viewed at home. This link will allow students to put in a location and determine when the Space Station will be traveling over their homes. It is easily visible with just the eye!

Holiday Party 2016
This was the COOLEST party that I have ever had at school! BIG thank you to all the parents who helped and attended. A special thank you to our fabulous room moms: Michele Franklin, Victoria Wilson, and Sabrina Moon.
Students were able to make a special reindeer snack mix, decorate a mug with paint pens, transform a classmate into a snowman with toilet paper and other supplies. The biggest hit was the photo booth from the Mike Moon. The kids had a blast posing with their friends and fun accessories. Click the link below to download them to check them out and save them for yourself!
Have an awesome winter break! See you all in 2017.
Dress for the Weather!
