Science Lab

In the Science FAB LAB fourth grade is exploring science standards that involve our universe. We created the Moon Phases in a “Ful-FILLING” way…Using Oreo cookies! We removed sections of the white icing to create replicas of the Lunar Phases. We voted on the most appropriate way to dispose of the unused portion of the Oreo cookies and the delicious creamy filling. I will let you ponder on the method of disposal that was the overwhelmingly popular vote…..



Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
