5TH GRADE SYMBOLIC MIGRATION PROJECT
Every year, since 1995, people from across the United States and Canada have created paper replicas of monarch butterflies. These paper monarchs are then shipped to Mexico for delivery to teachers and students who attend schools in two Mexican states: Michoacán and Mexico. Why these schools? The Cerro Pelon Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary is located in the state of Mexico, while the El Rosario and Sierra Chincua Monarch Butterfly Sanctuaries are located in the state of Michoacán.

Mrs. Barica would like to thank all the students who tried out for the fall session of art club. There were over 50 very talented participants between 4th and 5th grade. Since space is extremely limited in the art room, the number of students in the club will be limited to 20. These students will receive an official letter the week of October 4th. The first art club will be held Tuesday, October 12th. There will be a second round of art club starting in late winter (February).

STEAM ENGINE PTO FUNDRAISER: OCTOBER 25
Our school is hosting an exciting, whole-school fundraiser, STEAM Engine, starting MONDAY, OCTOBER 25TH! We are so excited for this fundraiser, because not only will it provide our school with much-needed funds but we will also earn new STEAM supplies for our classrooms.
A few things to note:
- This fundraiser will be very easy for you. It only requires about 10 minutes maximum from you.
- Your students are going to earn great prizes, just for their effort. No money required!
- This is an online, donation-based fundraiser, and the link can go to people you know anywhere in the world. That means, no direct pressure on your shoulders.
We are asking you to mentally SAVE THE DATE of our STEAM Engine kickoff – MONDAY, OCTOBER 25TH! Your students will be so excited to complete their Golden Ticket with you, and earn their prizes. This assignment must be done that night.
I will be sending a few more emails throughout the two-week fundraising period.
Thank you, in advance, for your support!
