Pajama Day by Monea M.

Pajama day is Thursday December 17. It's a Christmas pajama day, but if you don't have any Christmas pajamas you can wear any kind. Wear your best pajamas on Thursday, you never know if you are getting your picture taken! This pajama day is going to be the last one of 2015!! Can you believe that Christmas is next week and 2016 is coming up soon. Wow, it has been a short year!!

Writing with Calligraphy Ink Pens!! by Shelby and photos by Kyler

Mesopotamia (from the Greek, meaning 'between two rivers’) was an ancient region in the eastern Mediterranean bounded in the northeast by the Zagros Mountains and in the southeast by the Arabian Plateau, corresponding to today’s Iraq, mostly, but also parts of modern-day Iran, Syria and Turkey. The 'two rivers' of the name referred to the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers and the land was known as 'Al-Jazirah' (the island) by the Arabs referencing what Egyptologist J.H. Breasted would later call the Fertile Crescent, where Mesopotamian civilization began.

Sixth graders were learning about ancient Mesopotamia and got to choose if they wanted to do the code of Hammurabi ( which pretty much was a lot of laws, that people in Mesopotamia had to follow, and their punishments ), or the Ten Commandments ( it was a 10 laws stating how you should worship, and what not to do ).

What got the sixth graders excited about doing it is they got to use calligraphy ink pens!!! It was tough at first but then they got the hang of it. The sixth graders learned about Ancient Mesopotamia and had a bunch of fun doing it!!!

Calendars for Christmas by Lizzie M

SPOILER ALERT!!! If you're kids are in Mrs. Misencik's class, please read after the holidays!

The first graders made calendars for their parents. They created a picture of their choice for the top. They added stamps and stickers to mark important dates. Some students wrote their own birthdays and their families birthdays. Each child chose ribbon to hang their calendars. They wrapped their own gift with a bow on top. The first graders did an AMAZING job!

COSI by Sarah C.

On November 24, 2015, COSI came to Surrarrer Elementary. It started with a assembly, at 9:15, and later you got to do many creative science experiments with your grade. There was one experiment where there was a microscope and you could look at rooks. There was another where you can weigh yourself as if you were somewhere else in the Solar System, like the Moon and Venus. COSI was fun and cool. If you want to visit COSI it is in Columbus, Ohio.

Violinist rockin our school By. Monea M.

On Thursday December 17 two awesome violin players played a few pieces of music. The music sounded beautiful. I know one day Mrs Tattie's daughter and her friend will be professional violinist in time.
