We have had wonderful presentations of the parent-student field trip this year! Students have gone to a variety of places including: Holden Arboretum, Botanical Gardens, the Zoo, ThinkBox, The Glass Asylum, Great Lakes Science Center, West Woods, North Chagrin Reservation, Go Ape rope course and zip line, and learned about topics such as the Inner Ear, the Macula of the eye, why leaves change colors, how to prevent hearing loss and how to be a bee keeper just to name a few! Only one week left for presentations.
Our goal is to complete the presentations and wrap up our unit on Astronomy by the end of the quarter. If you have not already read chapter 1 please do so before the test. Our first BIG test (100 points) will be on Friday, October 13. Start reviewing now- use the quizlet to help, read the chapter, review all worksheets so far. You will get a review sheet at the end of next week.
Next week we will be talking about camp. There is a parent meeting for anyone interested in learning more about camp on Wednesday, October 4 from 6-7 pm in the Betty Patton room at KMS. Why are we talking camp so early in the year? We need to start collecting money for the camp trip and we are in the planning stages of another great week at camp. We literally start planning the next year’s trip at camp the year before.
