SPR GATAS S'more Newsletters Vol. 2 Issue 3
Our SPR GATAS 5 are engaged in amazing research about their heritage. This week we would like the student to insert some photos or family members or keepsakes into their digital family tree. If you have a photo you would like your student to use, please email me with an attachment. I will make sure they include it in their "Climbing My Family Tree" project.
Please help them make connections with phone, email, and any social media as we go into the season of gratitude and thanksgiving. I am very proud of the quality of the writing that is emerging from our 22 fifth grade GATAS students! Their project will definitely become a keepsake to share with your family members near and far.
Our SPR GATAS 4 contributed to an excellent Veterans Day program about flags.
We are thankful to Ms. Monica Stevens for creating beautiful barn wood flags for our program. We were able to receive signatures from over 30 veterans.
Our SPR GATAS 3 students have been enthralled with their research of Egyptian number systems. Who doesn't want to learn about Hieroglyphics, pyramids, and Egyptian life way back...
