Yikes! I'd be nervous too, Shane, if Ms. Liebtag was my dentist. The Alamance County Children's Museum gave us opportunities to play and imagine.

Broadway Bound?? Keaton and Joshua get creative in the dress up/stage area of the Alamance County Children's Museum.
Ask your child these questions at the dinner table or in the car:
2) How many drops of water fit on the face of a penny? Was your prediction close? What did you observe as you performed this experiment?
3) What customary units of measurement are used to measure length? Metric units?
4) Analyze the word, take. How many letters? How many sounds? How many syllables?
A Kilo of Rice a Day - Helping Families in the Philippines
iDream of being connected to the global community...
iBelieve we can make a difference!
iThink we have an opportunity right now!
McDougle Dolphins are Doing something to help families in the Philippines after the recent earthquake there! The McDougle community includes teachers and students with family members in the Philippines. One of them, Jarmie Bateson (System-Level Teacher at MES), has initiated a collection called “A Kilo Of Rice A Day”. Donations to Ms. Bateson’s project will be used for daily purchases of a kilo of rice, canned goods, and water for families who have lost their livelihood and farm lands due to the earthquake. Members of the MES community are invited to make cash donations to this project through November 15. Donations may be put in the collection box at Ms. Lin’s desk where they will be kept safe and then distributed to Filipino families in need.
