Author Skype Visit!
On March 29, the 3rd and 4th grade classes got to skype with an author. The author’s name is Tom Angleberger. He is the author of the Origami Yoda series and the Inspector Flytrap series.
First, they guessed what the origamis’ names. He held an origami up and everyone shouted out the name. He held up about 8 origamis.
After that, he asked them their favorite books. A few books they said were Pig the Pug, I Survived Pompeii, and Fish In a Tree. Then, Tom Angleberger turned the books into one book. Jackie suggested the title to be, “Everyone’s Favorite Book.”
Next, they asked some questions such as how he got the copyrights to use Star Wars characters. He was happy to answer the questions they asked. Finally, he started teaching them how to make an Origami Yoda. Sadly, they didn’t finish because it was almost recess. However, some of them might try to finish.
Overall, it was an amazing time and everyone enjoyed it. Ava said, “I think it was great!”
Chorus Solo Tryouts
A few weeks ago chorus had solo tryouts for the song, “Homeward Bound”. Some people who tried out were Kylie, Sarah, Sherry, Joey, Heather, and Michael. The tryouts were on a Wednesday during recess. Almost every kid there was nervous.
On the day of the tryout the kids had to be sitting in a line quietly so Mr. Dondero could hear the person that was singing. Mrs. Randall was watching the kids in the hallway. One by one, kids sang very well and confidently. All the kids were brave for trying out. There were almost up to 14 kids trying out for the solo.
The results were such a surprise and here is why. So the highest score was 36 points from Kylie so she has the solo. Three kids, Sarah, Sherry, and I, got into a tie with 31 points. Mr. Dondero gave us ¼ of a solo so we were all happy.
So I want to tell everyone that tried out that they did a great job. Also, you guys were awesome and brave. Great job to Kylie, Sarah, Sherry, and me for getting a solo. We all did well for the solo.
Student Council Sweetheart Dance
This year student council had their 2nd annual Spring Dance and it had a different theme this year. Last year, the theme was Spring and this year we had the dance on February 10, 2017, so the theme was Valentine’s Day. The dance was held in the gym at Bass River Elementary School.
This year we had kids from of all different ages come participate in the dance. If you came then you would have to be accompanied by a guardian older than the age of 18. Some people came with their Mom, Dad, Aunt, Uncle, Grandma, Grandpa or any other family member that was over the age of 18. I went with my poppop this year, but last year I went with my dad.
The student council had the dance because some other school districts have mother/son and father/daughter dances, but the student council knows that not every child in the school has a parent that is with them all the time. So we opened it up and let the children bring any adult or guardian that was over the age of 18.
I think everyone had a wonderful time! Thanks to the Bass River Student Council for running this event!
We rescued the pets
We brought them to a pet shop
They are now happy
These wicked witches
Burn their broom off the broomsticks
You wicked weirdos
It is cold outside
So we built a nice fire
And there are spiders
The happiest girl
Looked into an old mirror
And saw herself there
The battle began
The evil witch did attack
The three boys did win
Once there was a girl
She looked in the old mirror
And saw herself there
His name is Marco
He is a very tall man
Guess how tall he is
The witches have come
We noticed them and we fought
I hope we will win
There are three big cats
There are five strange people here
There are three spiders
The road is so hot
A house is near an ocean
A snow cone melts
