Congratulations to Sadie Wheeler, a fifth grader whose drawing was selected as a winner in this year's Freedom Festival Children's Art Contest. They selected her picture as one that is a "truly outstanding representation of this year's theme Land of LIberty." Watch for it to appear in this year's Freedom Festival magazine. Way to go Sadie!
Today Miss Foster’s class had the choice of building a bridge or a tower in class to see how many pennies it could hold up in a cup. They had to meet the requirements of height and amount of items they could use. We used an engineering process of trial and error. If the building fails the first time we are able to identify what is wrong and make a change in our design.
As the library finishes up it's year, the kids enjoy a popcorn reward party for returning their books. There was a lot of popcorn eaten and lots of fun Minute-to-Win-It challenges. Ms. Carr and Ms. Naylor's classes tied for the paper airplane challenge, a favorite of the students.
The fifth graders were able to participate in the Hope of America event. This event brings together thousands of fifth grade students to sing patriotic songs while wearing red, white, blue and gold and forming the shape of the American Flag. Today the students were able to hear the songs the fifth graders sang at the event. Great job fifth grade!
