I hope everyone can get some rest this weekend after the eventful week we just had. On Tuesday, author Margret Read MacDonald read some of her stories to the elementary and even got to talk to the students about her experiences editing and publishing her works. On Thursday, we had school pictures and it was really nice seeing some of the students dressed up and looking nice. Highlights from lessons this week were Ms. Mary teaching about solar heat and energy that comes from the sun and Mr. Ben introducing students to some of the different parts of cells that make up all living things.
A very special thanks to Ms. Linda (Claire’s Grandmother) for making Pumpkin Muffins and some fun Spooky Treats made out of different fruits on Friday. Also of Friday, the students were feeling very festive and made pumpkin and bat decorations for Morado. This helped make our tradition of Spooky Lunch look really great. During Spooky Lunch students get to sit all together in a circle and eat lunch with the lights off. Then they get to hear some slightly spooky and fun stories sitting around a campfire playing on a tablet.
The final part of our Friday, the students got to watch and participate in the Vocabulary Parade. Students really enjoyed designing, building, and showing off their costumes on a runway. There are photos of the event on this weeks’ Bloomz post. Sorry for the low quality, there were higher-quality photos taken, also.
Believe it or not October is over tomorrow and we are preparing for another eventful and fun month. Here are some important dates to remember in November:
Mr. Ben, Ms. Mary and Mr. Robin
