Happenings

What a week! Students have worked through perfecting their argument writing and will submit their letters on whether or not they think we should serve chocolate milk at school to Mr. Marshall this week.


We are continuing with our usual reading routine. Sixth grade students are continuing to read about science in Ancient China and 5th grade students will be starting a book on the muscular system.


We will be finishing our science unit this week. It has been fun learning about light, but we are ready to sink our teeth into other scientific matters. On this note as a final science project we will not only be turning our room into a camera, but we will also be making shoebox cameras. In order to do this I will be in need of shoeboxes (with ends that measure 4" by 5") , electrical tape, and aluminum foil.

What's Next

Now that students have become strong writers/arguers we are going to take things a step further and have a classroom debate on the pros and cons of chocolate milk. Once students get their debating skills down we will tryout other topics like school uniforms and the all loved ban on homework.


This week resident artist Debbie Harris will be visiting West Homer Elementary. she will be working with us on an Olympic themed art piece. I can't wait to see how this student art turns out!
