Grade 6 Mosaic
Mrs. Dayton's Class
On Monday our class will have the opportunity to learn about 3D Printing from Mrs. Skogstad's class. It will be exciting to learn about the process of 3D printing and possibly create and print our own designs.
Tynker, Khan Academy, Hopscotch, and Code.org, and CodeAcademy are a few of the programs that students will explore to learn more about coding and computer science. Many students have prior experience with these tools through Hour of Code. This will be an opportunity to extend their background knowledge and teach others about coding.
Our final engineering project involves designing bridges. Students will construct and test the strength of arch, beam, and suspension bridges.
*After school Lego Service Opportunity: On Wednesday, May 18th students are invited to stay after school from 3:00-4:30 to sort and label Legos. My apologies for the late notice. This is completely optional. Pizza will be provided. Students should bring their own drinks and/or other snacks. PARENTS WILL NEED TO PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION. PLEASE LET ME KNOW BY TUESDAY IF YOUR CHILD IS ABLE TO STAY. THANKS MUCH!
*Sixth graders and yearbooks: You likely received an email from the Forest Hills PTO informing you that 6th graders are given priority for ordering yearbooks. If you have not ordered a yearbook, soft-covered books are being sold for $17.00 until May 20th. Yearbooks will be distributed on June 3rd and may be signed at the Forest Hills Fun Run on June 4th. Please let me know if you have any questions.
*Spring Fling Transportation Forms: These forms went home Friday. Forms indicate how your child will be getting home (either bus to FH and picked up there or taken from CMS if you are volunteering the last shift) and should be filled out and returned. It is paramount to complete and return these forms prior to May 20th. Thank you!
*Spring Fling Donations: Please bring any donations for Spring Fling to the office this week. Donations requested are 20 oz. bottles of pop/sports drinks, big size candy, $5 gift cards, and cash donations.
