We have been super busy this week.  We had a technology lesson on Monday with Mr. Clough where we used the Chromebooks to illustrate and type facts about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln for President’s Day.  

We have continued our study of Matter in Science.  Students participated in a lab where they made predictions about what would dissolve in water and then made observations to confirm their predictions.

This week we continued our biography unit focusing on African American Trailblazers. Students have enjoyed learning about the lives and contributions of many African Americans of the past and present including Rosa Parks, Catherine Johnson, and President Barack Obama. We even had a special guest reader come in to read to first grade! Please be sure to ask your child who they learned about!
