--What's Been Going on in Rm 603--

100 Day Fair

We celebrated the 100th day of school by playing math games run by the 4th and 5th graders. The kids had a blast!

Class of Innovators

We have been studying famous innovators in our class over the past few weeks. The kids have been so inspired by the lives of people like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Florence Nightingale, the Wright Brothers, and more.

Garden Time

We went on a Lorax scavenger hunt through the garden last week to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday. Although we didn't find the loraxes, we had a great time exploring and writing in the garden. We also got to see how much our tomatoes from the fall have grown!

Student Council

We had our Student Council class elections a couple weeks ago. Every student who ran did an amazing job on their speeches! Congratulations to Alina, our new representative, and Lilly our alternate.

Thank you!
