For science we have been learning about Rocks and Minerals for the past few weeks. We were so lucky to have a geologist visit our classroom on Friday, September 26th to show us a lot of different types of rocks, tell us about how she came to be a geologist, so us examples of different rock properties (such as hardness) and more! Lorrie even brought all the kids geodes to break open and see what was inside. What a fantastic day! Please make sure to check out the photo page for a glance into our day.
A few pieces of information I want to make sure you are all aware of. First, a green packet came home Friday with information about a program coming to Bill Roberts called 'Avid4Adventures.' This looks to be a wonderful opportunity for our school and I hope you will all take the time to register your child. The registration page can be found here: http://www.avid4.com/school-programs/school-partners/onbillroberts/
If you would like help with the $12 fee please let me know as our PTA and many parents have donated extra so that we can participate as a school. It will be taking place over a few days, our class will participate on Thursday, October 9th.
Also, because this week will begin the month of October (crazy right?!) we put a new calendar in the kids homework folders so you have a heads up about events. I have also sent home book orders for the month. They are due back on October 23rd.
The fun run is Oct. 5th! Please join us and we will try to come up with a class theme this week (ideas are welcome just comment below!!).
Lastly, we have had quite a large number of students forgetting snacks. Please try to remember to send your child with a snack each day. If anyone would like to donate some extras that would be fabulous as I'm almost out. Thanks! :)
