Rock Collection Project

Our science lab instructor, Mrs. Swain, assigned the students the Rock Collection project, which is due on the morning of Thursday, March 21st. Each student should collect at least 8 different rocks or minerals in order to identify them. The students must not know the type of rock or mineral collected (it would defeat the purpose of attempting to identify it in science lab). Please use an ordinary egg carton to collect them, numbering the rocks or minerals #1-8. If anyone has extra egg cartons at their house, please bring them in for students who do not have one to use for collecting. Thank you!

Puberty Talk

All of the families should have already received an email from our school nurse in regards to the upcoming event, Puberty Talk, scheduled for Thursday, March 21st at 2pm. I will be leading the 5th grade boys' discussion, while Nurse Lorraine will lead the 5th grade girls' discussion. Adolescence is something to praise God for, so we look forward to this time to begin the conversation about taking care of our bodies and forming healthy habits. Parents, this is an opt-out event, so please contact one of our school nurses if you would prefer not to have your child attend. We would love to give you any information if you have questions about the topics we will be covering, so please let us know.
