What's New This Week

Science Projects!

While 4th graders are not eligible to participate in the Pennington Science Fairs, they are expected to conduct a controlled experiment (with 3 trials), and display all parts of their experiment, data, and results on a display board. Science project packets were distributed this week. Please work with your child to ensure they fulfill the requirements and meet all deadlines. Extra copies of the packet will be emailed home as well as posted on School Fusion classroom pages. Please contact us if you have questions.

A great resource: www.sciencebuddies.org

Monthly Poem

Patrick Henry's Famous Speech

Given March 22, 1776

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace, but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Rescheduled Test date: Friday, February 26th
