Johnson Museum Field Trip! by Marlea Monroe


The third grade went on a field trip to the Johnson Art Museum on the Cornell University campus. It was really fun. There was a guide that took us around to look at different paintings and sculptures. We wrote about what we thought was happening in the pictures and sculptures. In the Asian section we saw how to make ink using powder and water and a special ink tool. It was really cool. Then the guide let us use a special brush with the ink to make little lines on the paper. At the end we went to the bottom floor where we saw all different art behind glass cases. We had to study one piece and tell why we liked it.

We started studying explorers in Fourth grade at the beginning of March. Mr. Brooks dressed up like the explorer Samuel De Champlaine and Mrs. Blood dressed up like the explorer Giovanni Da Verrazzano. Samuel De Champlaine discovered Lake Champlaine and Giovanni Da Verrazzano discovered the land that is now New York City. Later people built a bridge in NYC called the Verrazzano Bridge.

It was a very fun day!

When your children go to school they need

Proper winter clothes for recess .

1st: To go in the snow your child will need some snow pants . If your child has two snow pants you can keep one par of snow pants at home.

2nd: Bring a par of mittens and a hat.

3rd: Bring a par of boots .Make sheer you also bring some sneakers on the days your child has gym .

4th: And always bring a coat .

That is what your child needs to have for recess. If your child only has a coat and boots he or she will have to walk the sidewalk.

Science Night ! by Haylee Thompson

Science Night!!


On the night of Feb 12th at Enfield Elementary, workers from the Science Center came to school. People who came in the freezing weather (it was cooooold) were happy they came. They learned how to make gliders and learned about momentum and weight. It was fun I learned how to make a flyer and did some other really cool projects. Thanks Science Center of Ithaca!

SUNRAYS AFTERSCHOOL BOOK TRAILERS by Marlea Monroe

In the last Sunrays session there was a movie making class and we made book trailers for three different books. The books were Martin's Big Words, The Dunderheads and The Wretched Stone. It was a lot of work, we had to read the books, make a storyboard, write the script, find and make props and act out the important parts of the book. It was fun. At the end we had a performance for parents and friends.

Sleepover Tips for Kids By Chloe Greco

If your going to a sleepover with someone make sure you bring a sleeping bag and a pillow just in case. Also ask your parents first. Make sure it is safe.

Sometimes you can play games and watch movies. Popcorn can be a tasty snack while watching the movie. Then it's story time. After story time its bed time. You do not sleep in your house in the sleepover you sleep at the persons house. Good night don't let the bed bugs bite!
