International Festival - April 23

Our class will be joining with Mr. Brines to study about the country of Mexico! Last week we heard several stories in Spanish and we have been finding out about life in Mexico, the land and climate, and of course the language and food!

Our class will be outside for Day of Service on the West Playground from 9:45-10:30. You are welcome to join us then, but assistance is also welcome throughout the day.

Earth Day/Day of Service: Students, staff, and parent volunteers will participate in beautifying our schools on Earth Day,Wednesday, April 22. If you are interested in supporting these efforts at either Bryant or Pattengill, please contact parent coordinator Adam Jurevicius at:

Earth Dome at Bryant on Tuesday

On Tuesday afternoon, our class will tour the inside of the Earth! The Earth Dome will be set up in the gym to give students a chance to see and understand the Earth in a unique way.

Volunteer During Centers!

This year we've been fortunate to have many U of M students either interning or volunteering in our classroom. Soon our college students will be finishing their semester and moving on. We welcome help during guided reading and centers if you are available. Monday and Tuesday at 9:50, Wednesday at 10:00 and Thursday at 10:50.

Defining Shapes

Before break we began looking at shapes and asking, what attributes do some shapes share? For example, a triangle always has three sides and three vertices (corners). Sometimes a triangle may be thin, or wide, or green - but it always has certain characteristics.
