Science News (Ms. Hall):



We have finished our study of seasons and almost finished talking about moon phases. Your child had a pop notebook quiz on Thursday to check if they are keeping their notebook organized. They were given five questions and were allowed to use their notebooks. The grades were returned today. Please remind them to continue their observation of the moon and to read over notes daily.
