A Note From Mrs. Graham
In regard to Teacher Appreciation Week, thank you all very much for your part in making last week special for me and my co-workers. Everyday we looked forward to the wonderful breakfast or lunch you provided. I have to say the Crumb de la Crumb vanilla bean lemonade was my favorite treat all week. I will continue to enjoy some special meals and shopping trips thanks to you, as well. My family and I are so blessed to be a part of this Nashville Christian School community. Thank you for honoring us this week.

Library: All library books are due on May 18th.
Testing: We will be taking our final STAR test on Tuesday. A good night's sleep Monday night will help your child do his or her best. A good breakfast and encouraging words would also be helpful.
Data and chart reading will be the next math focus.
Earth Science: Since our day at 4-H camp, our interest in rocks and minerals has peaked. We spent some time learning about sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks last week. On service day, we found quite a few fossils at Mrs. Stone's house (Seriously and ironically, her name is Mizella Stone). She allowed us to take a few back to school with us. We are enjoying collecting and studying the rocks around us.
Animal Projects: Some new words we have learned during this project: habitats, carnivores, herbivores, omnivores, adaptations, predators/prey, Apex predators, food chains and food webs. Some of us have also learned new landforms such as savannas, swamps, and scrub forests as they researched habitats.
