Today we are taking a test on the things we learned in our packet. We had two shortened switches this week so we did the experiments as a class under Mr. Singer’s new camera. We worked on changing phases of matter and evaporation and condensation.

Free Choice Area (By Taylor):
This week has been very fun. We had a few tests and we were doing a lot of homework. This week, we also went bowling, and had a great time! For the rest of the week, I think everyone had a great time. This week went by pretty fast.
Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
This has been a great week. It has also been a budy week. On Monday we had many visitors walking around the school observing our classes, Wednesday we went bowling for Phys. Ed., and yesterday Mrs. Markle came and visited us to meet and greet all the 6th grade students. I have taken a lot of pictures of our events this week, so plece go the pictures page on the website and check them out.
Please log onto Skyward to see your child’s grades now. Only two families have not checked yet, so thank you very much for cooperating. I will be sending a letter home to those who have not checked today.
Next Thursday we will be going to the high school to see the Fox River students put on a play for us. Other than that, the only other big day coming up is April 5th. This day is when the students begin their spring break. It begins at 11:50, when we dismiss for the day.
