Cannon 4th Grade

Engineering Our Future Through STEM

Weekly News

Excitement was in the air as we had some special visitors this week! It was great to have our Watch D.O.G.S join us in the classroom for some fun engineering and learning. Also, we had a fantastic Rachel's Challenge kick off with the aid of members of the GHS football team and the Fillies Dance Team. Our scholars are ready to make a difference as they spread acts of kindness!

Los alumnos estuvieron muy emocionados con los visitantes muy especiales que tuvimos esta semana. Fue grandioso tener a uno de los Watch D.O.G.S. en nuestro salón como parte de nuestra clase de Ingeniería. También tuvimos la inauguración del Reto de Rachel, con la ayuda de los miembros del equipo de football de GHS y del equipo de baile Fillies. Nuestros alumnos están listos para contagiarnos con actos de amabilidad.
