“Wonder Movie” / Quincy Bowl / Thanksgiving




Thank you everyone for your support in our private showing of the movie “Wonder.”  It’s such a great story and it will be another fond memory for us as fifth graders seeing it all together on the day it comes out! 
The Quincy Bowl is this coming Tuesday at 2pm.  This year I talked Cal DeKuiper into playing on the teacher team.  Should be a blast and yet another great memory of fifth grade for the kids. 
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Break everyone, I hope you find some peace and solace during the busy holiday season, and as always, GO LIONS on Thanksgiving Day!
BTW, my plans changed so I will be here and going to “Wonder” tomorrow!  I’m super excited!

Bike Trip / Art Project / Picture Day

Sturgeon Presentation by Past Students

Water Testing

Flipgrid Video Book Reviews



What a great bike trip it was today!  The weather was beautiful and the ride was fantastic.  Thank you again to all of the parents for your help making it such a great fifth grade memory!

I hope you had a chance to view some the Flipgrid book review videos.  Some of them are quite funny!

Here’s a note from the Art Teacher:

The kids will be doing a school wide art project where they will need 1 plastic clear water, Gatorade, or any bottle  that’s plastic with the label peeled off.  They are hoping to start next week.

Next week we will be back in the wetlands.  Weather looks beautiful all week.
