We worked hard this week to be very productive as possible despite our busy schedule. We practiced our Grandparent's Day program, prepped for the field trip by checking out the Whitaker Center website, and spent time studying and preparing for the Holy Week with Stations of the Cross, reading the Passion (Mark), and discussing next week's events.
Big thanks for all the wonderful Grandparents and special visitors that were able to attend on Wednesday. The students loved their time with their loved ones!
Our field trip yesterday went very smoothly! No traffic, great weather, and low attendance from others in the museum while we were there. Big thanks to the chaperones for helping corral the troops for us. After talking about it today, the favorite exhibits seemed to be the rock wall, mind ball, and hurricane booth. They also really enjoyed the IMAX about the Grand Canyon. It particularly warmed my heart when several students said they recognized and understood much of the storyline because of what we've studied in Science! Success! Check out the pictures!
I've been working on updating the Grade Portal with grades to start off the 3rd Trimester. Please check these out when you get a chance.
