South Side Family Newsletter
Hello South Side Families!
It's that time of year that we are all getting tired of so many hours of darkness outside and lots of cloudy days. One way to combat this feeling is to keep our kids active. You've heard from your child about our STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) challenges. Recently we challenged students to create something new out of a cereal box and this week we challenged them to create something new out of a water bottle. The designs and effort put in to both of these projects were really enjoyable to see and talk to kids about. We all have trash, so we all have the ability to challenge our kids to create something new. Be on the lookout for future STEM challenges. In the meantime, create your own challenge at home. Send me a picture and I'll post it on our school app and Facebook page. As always, if you have any feedback or questions please contact me. We'll see many of you soon at our parent/teacher conferences. If you would like to schedule a conference please contact your child's teacher. Our conference date is listed below in the important dates section along with many other upcoming events.

Art Update from Mrs. Hall: Second grade worked on two types of printmaking for their Winter Self-portraits. We did cardboard stamping for the background and styrofoam prints for our hats and mittens. To finish, we created a collage together and added a facial expression!
