Students began the week by continuing to clean and sort their fossils. I was really impressed with the collection of fossils that students found. I hope that you enjoyed seeing these finds arrive home in their egg cartons on Wednesday!

Grades and Activities for the Week:

Kite Project: To bring to life the concept of force, students will construct and test their selected kite design this week. Students will fly their kites on Friday (5/19) during a class competition. A project grade will be entered into PowerSchool at the end of the week.

Kite Materials Homework: Students are to bring in needed supplies on Monday (5/16). All students should have a green homework slip indicating their assigned supplies. A homework grade will be entered into PowerSchool for successfully bringing in needed materials.
