September 11th Moment of Silence

Attributions: 

Yesterday the Mapleton Police and Fire Fighters came to teach us about safety.  At the end of the assembly, we stood and took a moment of silence to remember the men and women who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 11th.  What a special moment!

The 5th grade is getting good use out of its second chromebook cart!  Here's what two fifth graders have to say about using chromebooks...

Collin Anderson--

I like the fact that we are using Chromebooks in fifth grade.  They are fun to use and very handy when doing research.  The fact that they are fun to use even when doing something that isn’t as fun.  They also are portable unlike the computers in the computer lab which makes it easy to get in groups.  I think that if I were to rate it from one to ten, I’d give it about a twenty-five.

Butterflies

First grade has been studying the life-cycle of the butterfly.  Today they released 2 of the full grown butterflies.  Thank you Miss Sayers for bringing this great activity to first grade!
