Facetime with Egypt
Students FaceTime with Mr. McHale on Egypt trip. Saw the Nile and Cairo.
The 5th grade mile begins!
Don't forget to remind kids about collecting pledges.
The first phase of the outdoor classroom is done. The pad is leveled and the benches are installed. Our next phase will be to look at any possible additional features to add. Right now the space is simple but functional. We should have the kitchen also finished in the next two weeks. Feel free to use the space when it is available.
If you have any students you are considering for retention, we should have already discussed the possibility before conferences. Also, parents should have been made aware of your concerns and possible retention at conference and on the last report cards. If you have a concern for a student please discuss it with me immediately.
STEM Gravity Race Car Challenge
Still Time to SIGN UP for the 2016 STEM Gravity Race Car Challenge! Twenty schools will get the chance to use science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects to figure out how to build the fastest possible gravity-powered car to race down a ramp. The team with the fastest car at your school's qualifying race will get to go to Sonoma Raceway on Saturday, June 25th—NASCAR Weekend—to race against the winners of the other schools in the North Bay. School teams will race in the Raceway's famous Winner's Circle! The team that wins the race will get to attend the NASCAR races on Sunday, June 26th. Email Vicki Whiting <firstname.lastname@example.org> by April 1st if you want to participate.
