As we return from spring break, I realize that I have not updated the blog in a long time-- and that's an understatement! I guess that we have been so busy DOING that I havn't taken a moment to post here and share! So please take this blog post as a "snapshot" of the last six week and a look into what's coming next. Captions and more pics coming sooooon!
Third Grade takes on force and motion and begins their Rice Rangers Program!
Students in 3rd grade, along with a few 2nd graders work with Casey Trees to plant 7 wonderful new native trees in the front of the building!
The morning Be Water Wise enjoys bagels ( thanks Max!) while making water conservation signs!
Below, the Be Water Wise recess group makes Water Use Detective badges!
5th Grade learns about using a the flow meter bag to determine the water efficiency of their sink faucets. From their they explore what happens to stormwater runoff in DC and complete a service learning project by cleaning up our block. Would you believe that we filled two large trash bags on Maury's grounds alone??
