Ways to Stop The Spread

Mrs. Clinton's 5th grade Science classes are learning about 'Infection Detection' and germs. There are lots of way for germs to spread and lots of ways to spread them. Here are some ways to reduce the spread of germs. One way is to eat a lot of vitamin C. Another way is to wash your hands. But wash your hands right. Wash your hands as often as possible. When washing your hands, make sure to take off your jewelry off. Rings and bracelets are great hiding places for bacteria. Washing is not enough, you need to scrub.For best results,count to thirty when washing hands. Don’t forget to scrub under your fingernails, especially if they are long. Many people do not know that cleaning your soap dispenser is important,because your dirty hands touch it before they are clean. Use a towel to dry thoroughly after washing your hands.

Red team vs Mountain view 2

In the first half our QB scored the first touchdown of the game. Then Mountain view 2 scored. In the second half our running back Luke made an amazing run. Someone on the other team got about a thirty yard run. But we stopped them because they would be ahead. We won the last game in the Mitey Mights season.

Red Panda Fun Facts

Have you ever heard of the Red Panda? If not, then we are going to tell you more about them. Red Pandas were first discovered in 1825, about 48 years before the Giant Panda. Red Pandas live in parts of China and northern Myanmar. They eat bamboo shoots and bamboo leaf tips. They are small mammals, and similar in size to the common house cat. French Zoologist called the Red Pandas the “most beautiful” animal he had ever seen and named it “Ailurus Fulgens” meaning fire-colored,or shining cat. The common name Panda, may be derived from a Nepalese name for these animals, Nigalya Ponya, which may have meant “bamboo footed.’ I hope you enjoyed learning more about Red Panda
