This past Friday the students practiced “resilience” as part of Habits of Mind. The STEM activity involved the incorporation of the Olympics, collaboration, and a whole lot of patience!
Students went “Alpine Skiing” with a board, plastic toothpicks, and a marble. The object was to keep the marble on the board, clear the flags, and increase the speed in which this was accomplished.
The students were also challenged to build card houses as a practice of resilience.
Lent starts this Friday. Please join the school Wednesday to receive ashes at church at 9:00 A.M.
Please sign up for a time for parent teacher conferences if you are interested in meeting with me or if I sent home a request.
Students are welcome to exchange Valentine’s Day cards on Wednesday as long as they give a card to everyone in the class.
In honor of both Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday falling on the same day, students may wear a purple accent to school.
