In Science we have been exploring the properties of air, and how it relates to flight. The experiments in class have been pretty interesting, but the rocket launching at the park was the highlight by far! For anyone who is interested, the rocket package costs less than $20, and can be purchased at the Aviation Museum (water powered and very safe). The video above is an online posting of the Bill Nye video we saw in class last week. This week we will be constructing various items and testing their ability to glide through the air.
Just a reminder that Friday is a PD day. If you ordered subs for all the days on the order form, the PD days that were incorrectly included on the form will be tacked on as two extra sub days at the end, which takes us into December. See the CASC calendar for specific dates.
Just a reminder that picture day forms went home this past week. The cross country run is on the same date, but we will have our photos done before the runners leave, so they can bring a change of clothes for the run.
And a note for all of your calendars...Our class will be hosting a Family Math Night (Math Freaks Come Out At Night) on October 30th, at Churchill.
