First, thanks to everyone who made it to our Family Night/Sock Hop on Friday! It was amazing seeing the students perform and all of them deserve congratulations for their hard work. Check the Bloomz update for “exclusive” backstage photos of the event taken by Mr. Ben. Also, thanks for the huge amount of sock donations that came in from families. With the holidays coming up we are getting the students more involved in helping and donating to others through Mary’s Place, an organization that helps local homeless families. We began this week by having the students make posters for the school about our donation drive next month.
Highlights from this week were students making their own Egyptian cartouche with our art specialist, Ms. Michelle, and learning about animal classification with Ms. Mary. With the end of election season, we have had a lot of students involved in making different political and biome maps this week. They also finished up this month’s Literature Circle books and some students have been practicing handwriting with tablets.
A special event this week was being invited to listen to the Upper Elementary’s early human research reports in front of a fire they had made. It was really cool to hear what they have learned and helped warm up everyone with this cold week. Students also enjoyed potatoes cooked on the fire.
Next week, remember we only have two days of school. The schedule will be the same except we will not be doing spelling next week.
Have a great holiday,
Ben, Mary, & Ali
