Flood SC with Love Project

SPS parents donated enough supplies to fill up over 180 care bags for the flood victims in our state.  Students wrote encouraging notes to place in the bags.  

Water bottles, cleaning supplies, extra food, and hygiene items were all loaded up and taken to a trailer truck headed to the mid and lower parts of our state. 

Showing we care for the people in our state.  

Why put a colony on Mars?

On Thursday, October 4th, our class discussed placing a colony on Mars.  In 2010, President Obama said that NASA's next venture would be to explore and land on Mars and hopefully place a colony there by 2030.  Last week a grad student, Lujendra Ojha, found evidence of flowing water on Mars.  So would you go to Mars?  Why would we put a colony on Mars?  In the picture above, I mapped out some of their questions and answers.

Fire Safety Week

On Friday, the 3rd grade students watched a video and were challenged to create an escape plan, check the smoke detectors in their home, and check all the windows in their home to make sure they would open.  Students practiced opening a window and experienced the smoke house.  Our goal is to be prepared in case of an emergency.  Do you know where your family will meet if your house catches on fire?
