: Diggin Up Gold and EleMiddle Night at the Volleyball game. Game time: .
September is childhood cancer awareness month, so in honor of this, we're hosting a Going Gold night on during the High school volleyball game! We'll have food and desserts (bake sale items) and a silent auction going on in the HS commons area. We will also have a chance for you to win prizes by "buying" a VB player that night to serve for you during a heated competition in between games!
This event is in honor of Lane Mendenhall (5th grader and son of our Para and bus driver, Sam Mendenhall). Come out and support Lane and Clever Lady Jay Volleyball. If you haven't been to a volleyball match yet this year, you are in for a real treat! Preschool- 8th grade students get in FREE and parents get 1/2 price admission ($1.50 ea.)
Lane is one of our classmates. Please come out and support this cause!

Happy Thursday! I wanted to make sure that everyone was clear on the expectations for the science project.
1. This should be something SIMPLE. There is no need to go buy anything. They could test the best type of paper to make a paper airplane fly farther or what kind of bubble gum blows the biggest bubble? This is simply to see if they understand the process of the scientific method & can follow the steps.
2. All students were given a guide to go by and a lab report to fill out as they go. This guide has deadlines for each section & should be initialed each day by the teacher to make sure they are staying on track. (I was gone yesterday so some of them may not have my initials).
3. This is a type of assessment and should be solely completed by the students. They are welcome to get some help coming up with an idea but the writing of the lab report, designing of testable question & hypothesis, etc should be all their work.
4. They will be giving short presentations next Wednesday or Thursday to share what they tested & what happened during the test. I'm not looking for a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation, just a quick 1-2 minute explanation of what they did & learned.
You may use this link to see a copy of their timeline & expectations if they don't have it at home.
