Juicy Nibble

So long fourth graders, hello to fifth grade!  We had a great last week and our final class meeting of the year focused on the high/low of the year and 'betcha didn't know for the summer.  Looks like we have many people traveling!  Have fun and stay safe!
My high for the year was working with this wonderful group of young people, it has been a pleasure!
My low is that I have to say good-bye to them. 😦
My 'betcha didn't know is that we will be taking a family trip to Europe to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Have a wonderful summer vacation, read, relax, relish and repeat!
Mrs. Williams
Recommendations for next year!
Building Ferris Wheels






Saying good-bye to King Banks!
Thank you for the wonderful class gift!

Summer plans!  #fun

A Big Bite

Sports Day!

A Big Bite

As Mrs. Merten says, we are always "learning until the last minute!  We started the week with Sports Day, continued with the USA round up which included mining for gems like '49ers, and then participated in The Amazing Race.  We worked in centers to wrap up line designs, non fiction writing and began an enrichment project in geometry.  We finished up the electricity unit with a Kahoot quiz  and then an engineering challenge called "Light Your Way,"  Thanks to Andrew Leenhouts of Gill Engineering for helping us out with our, "hands free light sets."  We are so lucky to have former FHS students volunteer their time to work with the next generation of engineers! We finished the week looking at the new yearbook and talking about how quickly 4th grade has flown by.  This is a very special class and I will treasure them always.
Ask your student about the activities of the past week.  It was an amazing week. :) 





 



Dressing up, just because!  You look lovely!
