3rd grade students in Mrs. Waller's class just completed a Rocks and Minerals Science unit. To reinforce what was learned throughout the unit, students created the three types of rocks using Starburst candy. Students began by stacking three Starbursts together forming layers, or Sedimentary rock. Afterwards, students covered the layers in tinfoil and applied pressure which changed the shape and created a Metamorphic rock. Finally, students placed their rocks in a toaster oven. Once the rocks melted and cooled, they were able to see an example of what an Igneous rock looks like. Students enjoyed seeing the transformations of the different types of rocks and identifying the changes that occurred to their candy.
Our 3rd graders are excited to bring you their program tomorrow (Tuesday) night! The program will begin at 6:00 in the ES gym. We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night at 6:00!

As an extension to learning multiplication, students in 3rd grade participated in a Multiplication Bakery activity. Several classrooms were transformed into bakery related stations which allowed students to demonstrate their knowledge on using multiplication strategies. Student stations were Cookie Tray Arrays with the use of Cookie Crisps, Donut Arrays using Cheerios, and then students were able to become bakers with a "You're the Baker" activity where students created arrays using graham crackers, icing, and candy. Students were engaged and had a yummy timed practicing multiplication.

The students also wrote a novel summary and gave their favorite quote from the book. Students completed their Amazon listing by rating the story Because of Winn-Dixie and by recommending similar books for others to read.

All car riders will be dropped off and picked up on the side loop. Paving was completed last year to create a longer roadway in order to pull cars off of highway 19. Parents are asked to follow the road down to the softball/ baseball field parking, circle the cones, and return to merge into the existing loop. For pick up, please have your car rider cards available. You will be given direction by the caller each afternoon and assigned a number for the position to pull to alongside the new wing. Each station will have a number to help give you directions as to where to stop. We do ask that you do not use the front drive of the school during the dismissal time and only use the front at arrival if you as a parent intend to park in the front parking lot and enter the building. Extra personnel will be on hand to help with this pattern. As always your patience and support is greatly appreciated.
The car rider loop will run as usual in the morning.

First, students were read the story, Tough Cookie, about a gingerbread cookie that became an ornament on a tree.
