A Note from Dr. Reynolds
We have had a great first 9 weeks of school. Thank you for your support and flexibility. Fall is a very busy time for us, there are lots of events going on. I want to highlight a few. First of all we will have our fall festival. This event will be filled with baskets fro each classroom, games and food trucks. We plan to have the football games on for our avid sports fans. We are excited to share that we will be hosting our WBE families for Thanksgiving lunch on November 11th an 12th. We will be sending out info on dates for each class as well as any presell info. We will also have our book fair going on during this week. At the end of October we will also be having a cookie dough/popcorn sale. These fundraisers will be going toward additional technology for students, improvements on our playground, outdoor concreted picnic area and STEM supplies.
As always thank you for your support.

Pre-K: Pre-K starts our Tree Study next week, and made Chicka Chicka Boom Boom trees. Our challenge was to see if we could build trees that would hold magnetic letters and count how many letters they held!
4th Grade: After reading The Circulatory Story and learning about the human heart, the fourth grade students had the opportunity to hold and touch real pig hearts. The students were so excited and intrigued to actually see the real parts in the heart that we had learned about. It was a fun day of hands-on learning for them!
4th and 5th grades used the engineering design process to design and creature Create-ures.
Students had to collaborate with a team to create a create-ure that had never existed before. These create-ures had to have required adaptations on them. All create-ures had to have:
• A way to get energy/food
• Protection from the climate • Protection from predators • A way to move
