Additional note about Candy Bar BINGO!
HOUR PROJECT-AISLYNN'S ANGELS
Candy Bar Bingo is almost here! It is Friday, March 20th from 6:00 to 8:30. We are 4th graders in Mrs. Gibson’s class and for our Genius Hour project we want to help an HSE family. We are selling cookies, wristbands, and candles for Fishers Junior High student, Aislynn Ball, who has Gardner’s syndrome. The money will be donated to her family for Aislynn’s medical bills. Gardner’s syndrome is a type of syndrome that makes tumors grow all over your body.
The wristbands are $2.00 and the cookies are $1.00. The tea light candles are 50¢, the medium candles are $1.00 and the large is $1.50.
We will be selling from 6:00 to 7:30. Make sure to bring money to Candy Bar Bingo!
We hope to see you there!
Macy Summers, Braylee Vicari, Whitney Byard, Olivia Andrews, Ashley Lopez, & Ava Paul.

We are Learning...
Math: We will continue our math unit on Money. Students will work on identifying coins and how much they are worth, then they will work on counting a collection of coins.
Writing: We are working on our Young Author books! We will be revising and editing a story that we wrote earlier in the year.
Science: We will continue our study of the weather! We will be learning about the day-to-day patterns and the seasonal cycles of weather. We will learn how to use tools to observe and measure weather phenomena like precipitation, changes in temperature, wind speed and direction.
