Maker Faire is Tomorrow Night!

May 17, 2017

Tomorrow night our school will be holding a Maker Faire to show off projects many of the students have been working on in class. Our class has been working with Lego WeDo robots. They will have a project to show. So students are invited to attend to host their project in our room. (Sort of think of it like a science fair.) Students attending are asked to be here at 4:45.

The Maker Faire is from 5-7. Parents can walk around and visit the other classrooms. Students may join parents to visit the other classrooms, but they are asked to be in the room when they can to show off their WeDo robots to visitors.

Maker Faire is Thursday Night

Our school will be holding a school wide “Maker Faire” on Thursday from 5-7 p.m.  Our classroom will be participating.  We have been working with Lego WeDo robots in class and the kids can display their projects for the public at the Maker Faire.  If your student would like to participate, they need to be here at our classroom by 4:45 on May 18.  Students will then be able to show off their work to all our visitors.

Food for America Day at the High School

Today we visited the high school and learned about farming in Indiana.  We learned about lots of different foods that are grown or made in Indiana.  We also found out about many kinds of farm animals that are raised right here in our own state.

Cleaning out the Classroom

As we are moving to a new building next year, I will be doing some serious “house-cleaning” in my room in the next few weeks.  As I come across things I don’t need anymore, I will be offering them to the students.  So don’t be surprised if your student comes home with extra books or other “goodies”.

May 22 is Family Picnic Day

Families are invited to come eat lunch outside on this fun day.  Come join the kids for lunch, and if the weather is nice, everyone will be having a picnic outside!  Plan to join us on Monday, May 22 at lunch time (we eat around 11:45 a.m.).
