Science Fair Projects 2011




After many weeks of planning, preparation, experimenting, data collecting and analyzing, we have finally completed our science inquiry projects for this year's Science Fair. We learned how to test, measure and control variables using the science inquiry process. We also learned how to gather, display and analyze data. It would not be telling the truth if we didn't also admit we had a great time doing it! Turns out science IS fun!

"Firework" Performance




This is a video of our fourth grade students' rendition of Katy Perry's, "Firework" at our April PBIS assembly. Over the past few weeks we have discussed the lyrics in great detail. We believe this is a song with a very powerful message: don't let others bring you down, believe in yourself because you are capable of amazing things.

I am so proud of all my fourth graders' bravery in performing in front of the whole school and not being afraid to be themselves. You are all spectacular!
