Big Boo Carnival

Plan to bring your family to school in costume this Saturday, October 28th, from 4-7 pm for carnival games, fun and loads of prizes!

All proceeds from this event will go toward sending 4th and 5th graders to outdoor school.

Bring a spouse, grandparent, friend or older student to enjoy the fun and even run a game for an hour! There are more teachers planning to come and help than parents, so let’s change that equation!

Call or email Sheri and let her know you can help us make this happen!

Salmon Time!

It’s an even-numbered year, which means we raise salmon this time around. A big shout out goes to Mr. Segundo for helping get our incubators and chillers out of storage for us and fetching 90 gallons of water from the well. We picked up our salmon eggs yesterday from the ODFW office in Clackamas, and they are resting comfortably in each of our three classroom incubators.

Diving Deep in Science and Engineering Practices

In the month of September and part of October, our students engaged in activities and projects that focused on the practices of Planning and Carrying out Investigations, Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions, and Interpreting and Analyzing Data. Vernier temperature probes were used in investigations and projects such as exploring temperature in a chemical reaction, constructing and testing solar ovens, and designing and testing an insulated cup.

Congratulations to Miguel, named EY Kiwanis’ Great Kid!

Congratulations to Miguel!

Miguel was honored today as the EY Kiwanis’ Great Kid! Miguel earned this honor for several reasons. First, he works extremely hard every day. Second, his behavior is a terrific example to his classmates of “The Pioneer Way.”
