Our Week in Review by Student Journalist - Gael 101

Thursday we played a Kahoot and Quizizz to review our spelling and root words.

It was really fun. In art we tried finishing our pattern project. Some people didn't finish while some did. Also yesterday we had DARE. Officer N came in and he taught us about tobacco and cigarettes and what they do to your bodies. He told us cigarettes damage our lungs and if you smoke a lot you may have to get this hole on your throat. Also he told us food can come out of there YUCK. In gym we watched videos of how much and what you’re supposed to eat. They are foods like grains, fruit, vegetables,and proteins. Proteins are types of fish, grains, rice, bread, vegetables, pickles etc.


It’s time for the Annual
