Week February 10

Hello 4A Friends!

We had a productive and exciting week last week! Monday morning chapel was a blast as students competed in the edible car race. Two students from our class were recognized with ribbons for their  successful inventions. Congrats to Ava Downer and Jay Slavin! On Friday morning K-4 got to travel to the Fox Theatre to watch a production of Miss Nelson Has a Field Day. It was performed by the Dallas Children’s Theatre. Reading the book in class prior to the field trip was great way to see the book come to life! STEM night also took place on Friday evening. We had several 4A scientists recognized. Congratulations to: Cecilia Kramer (2nd place) Do Cats Have Unique Paw Prints?, Max Puntenney (3rd place) Tooth Decay, and Aleks Wolert (Honorable Mention) Swimming Out of the Fog. Great job to everyone for their hard work on Science Fair!
