This week in STEM, students learned that chocolate is made from cacao beans. Let's just say that cacao beans do NOT taste like the chocolate we are used to!

On Monday, we celebrated our 5th annual National Day of Reading, 

formerly known as Ben Carson Reading Day to raise awareness

of the importance of everyday, leisure reading.  Look at the

excitement one of our third grade classes had to share

what they read!

Fourth Graders read an article and watched a video on Scholastic News

to learn about the recent hurricanes.  This helped students to write

letters to students in Puerto Rico for the Hispanic Heritage Month

activity. We continue to think about everyone

who was impacted by the hurricanes.
