Students are climbing the walls!
Lately, Mrs. Sulon has been trying something fun in her class. Using the 'voice to text' feature on our Chromebooks, Mrs. Sulon thinks the feature will be a great tool for reinforcing the editing of punctuation as well as looking at sentence structure. The students practiced reading their stories into the computer instead of typing the text (which makes it easier for everyone to read). It is a great way to reinforce mechanics as each child has to verbally command all punctuation!
Please remember to bring I.D. with you when picking up your child. If someone else routinely picks-up your child, please make sure to list them as an emergency contact AND remind them to have proper I.D. when they arrive.
Please be sure to write your child's teacher a note regarding ANY changes to your child's afternoon routines. For last-minute changes, please call the school office at 215-809-6300 and speak with one of our secretaries.
Our lost and found is growing. It is full of coats, fleece jackets, hats, scarves, etc. Please have your child check for lost personal items. Parents may also visit the lost and found. Please check-in at the office first.
Be Food-Allergy Aware!
Due to varied allergy and dietary needs, please contact your child's teacher before sending in food for students other than your child (e.g. for birthday celebrations, class parties). Do not send in any items until the teacher has responded and confirmed the appropriateness of your request. Also, students should not share food at any time during school - even with a close friend. A seemingly harmless food item may unexpectedly contain allergens, or interact with other medical conditions. Depending on the health needs in the classroom, teachers may choose to avoid food-oriented experiences altogether.
Please see our guidelines for more information.
H2O is water and H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide. What is H2O4?
Have you heard the one about a chemist who was reading a book about helium?
He just couldn't put it down.
What do you do with a sick chemist?
If you can't helium, and you can't curium, then you might as well barium.
Thank you. Thank you very much...we'll be here all week....
