December 2 – 6

5th grade STEM Fair! Students enjoyed listening to 5th graders explain the scientific process with their experiments. We have quite a few siblings in our class as well!  

Thank you to Noah’s Mom for being our MYSTERY READER Thursday!  We loved reading “Clark the Shark loves Christmas” and the yummy GUMMY sharks!  She also brought every student a light up Christmas light bulb necklace that students will wear the day of our holiday breakfast!

Thank you to Ellie’s dad for being our MYSTERY READER today!  We enjoyed reading a few chapters from “Way of the Warrior Kid” and looking forward to continuing to read it.  Students were thrilled about getting the INSIDE SCOOP about being an Operation Chief for SJCFD!  What a courageous job!
