THANK YOU ALEX FOR SPONSORING OCTOBER BOOK CLUB!

OCTOBER STREAM CHALLENGE

Each month we take all the first graders into the Stream Lab to conduct a challenge. This month's challenge was to create a structure that could hold a mini pumpkin. They worked with a partner. They could use straws, tape and scissors. The pumpkins had to be at least 1 inch off the surface. Thank you for joining the PTO! Your donation helps pay for the materials for these labs.

4th Grade Buddy Pumpkin Project
