What a busy week!

I have added more photos of Homecoming and the Halloween Gym from last week.

Check out the link on the right, Mrs. Lynch’s Photo Album.  There you can email, print and more from Picasa, a web based program for sharing photos.

Computer Classes in grades 2-5 will be taking the Star Reader Test this week.

1st Grade: Students will be exploring the program PIXIE with activity pages on the computer.

K: Students will be practicing their mouse skills by drawing their Halloween costume in TUX PAINT.

PE Classes: All classes will play the activity Ghost Hunt.  The students will hunt with a flashlight for ghosts hidden underneath 25-40 cones.  Sometimes they find the unexpected and sometimes they find a ghost!

Fun for all with this activity.

Plan to see many photos of the Halloween Parade from Friday!

Enjoy,

M. Lynch
