Friday Update

A great week, that ended with a  field trip to the Blue Heron reserve.  The students had so much fun on the scavenger hunt, exploring and playing.  We were so grateful that the rain held off! A huge thank you to all the parents that came and helped us out by taking a group. This week, for Math, the students had to use their knowledge of fractions to escape from a deserted island. They were working in teams and had to complete obstacles in order to be rescued. It was great to see them work together to complete these challenges. They also used their knowledge about fractions to ‘Run an Ice Cream Shop’ this week. This requires them to plan and set up, and figure out all the details needed. In Science we have been learning about ecosystems. Students have been working hard on a poster where they choose one of the three levels of ecosystems. On their poster they have to define it, give three examples and draw a detailed picture of that ecosystem. They have enjoyed this and have worked really hard on it. Chapel this week also held some excitement. The Guatemala team came to share about their trip over Spring Break. They shared about their experiences, sang some Spanish songs, and shared a special treat with them. It was exciting to talk and hear about their trip. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend.

Bible Memory:

I will be testing our Bible memory this week! Keep practicing at home.

Matthew 28:5-8

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘he has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
