Cannon Elementary 4th Grade

Engineering our Future Through STEM

Weekly News

What a wonderful Red Ribbon week! Our PTA did an amazing job of decorating the school and it was great to see so many students dress up to show the healthy choices they make in their lives! Next time you are at school, check out the new tulip garden students planted.

Scholars will continue to learn about weather and are entering the design phase as they work towards engineering structures that can withstand a given form of severe weather. Teams are working together to construct models that meet all constraints. They are encouraged to bring materials from home as long as the material is recycled or unprocessed.

Fue una semana maravillosa contra las drogas. Nuestro PTA decoró la escuela y vimos a los estudiantes vestidos cada día para demostrar sus decisiones saludables. La póxima vez que venga a la escuela, visite el jardín de tulipanes que los alumnos sembraron.

Los alumnos siguen aprendiendo sobre el clima y están comenzado la etapa de diseño para construir estructuras que resistan una tormenta. Los equipos están trabajando para cumplir con todas las normas del diseño. Los alumnos necesitan traer materiales reciclados de su casa.
