Science Experiment

Tomorrow the students will be presenting their science experiment. They have made a poster in class and will be sharing it with the class. If your child would like to bring in their experiment they may, but it is not required. If you took a video or pictures please email them to me at howens@canaanca.com. They have been working so hard on these experiments!


2 Liter Bottles

We are in need of clean, empty 2 liter bottles for a project. Please send them in before Friday.


Career Interview

Your child will be bringing home a Career Interview sheet today. They will have to find someone that either has the career they have chosen to research or somone with knowledge on that career that they can interview. We have gone over how to do an interview. They need to have the interview done by next Monday (April 11th). This will be apart of their Career Research grade for Writing.
