Please use the pledge sheet provided and be sure to turn in on a daily basis! Daily prizes for the most amount of money brought in are; bonus casual days, getting to sit at your teacher’s desk for a day, or shooting Mr. Foster with a Nerf gun. School wide fundraising targets will allow students the opportunity to give Mr. Rozario a makeup lesson or water balloon their teachers. So, get out there SJA, and raise some money!!!!!

We began the day with a fun structures experiment!!!! Ms. Jaskolka gave us four different materials: paper, cardboard, stir sticks and plastic straws and we needed to conclude which material could hold the biggest load. As scientist, our first step is making predictions. Then, we worked in our groups to test the different materials and we used our observation chart to record our results. At the end of our experiment we wrote our conclusion and what we learned: We learned that materials used to build structures need to be strong in order to lift and hold a heavy load.

Next we had French and then Gym.

After first recess and lunch we had Music.

When students returned, they continued working on their materials experiment.

Next students worked on their Math reviews.

After second recess and lunch we finished working on our math reviews.
