The ice and snow came and went, and now we have had chilly days with sunshine. I am thankful that the students have been arriving to school safely. There have been some illnesses going around due to the colder weather, so the school has decided there should be no high fives for the time being to decrease the amount of germs being passed around. Our class already wipes down all the desks with disinfectant wipes to decrease the germs in our classroom. Still, we ask if your child has a fever or is throwing up that they stay home from school.
We had our Strive for Five Pride Assembly today celebrating the perfect attendance accomplishments, and positive behavior of the students. The student of the month attribute is organization, which the students are doing pretty well on.
We are continuing our science unit, studying the human body’s organ systems. We have been studying more closely how the organ systems work, and how they interact with each other. Today, we started our discussion on diabetes.
Important Dates and Upcoming Events:
