We had a wonderful feast yesterday.  Some of the 6th & 7th graders brought in songs and poems to read about Thanksgiving.  

The Pilgrims Came
(Author Unknown)

The Pilgrims came across the sea,
And never thought of you and me;
And yet it's very strange the way
We think of them Thanksgiving day.

We tell their story, old and true
Of how they sailed across the blue,
And found a new land to be free
And built their homes quite near the sea.

Every child knows well the tale
Of how they bravely turned the sail
And journeyed many a day and night,
To worship God as they thought right.

Science Presentations

Excellent job on your science presentations.  Everyone is improving!

We've been studying the solar system.  All the students picked out a topic on the planets, moon, asteroids... and made a PowerPoint on them.

The following presentations were presented very well, and the slides were excellently laid out.

*You may notice that there are few facts on the slides, this is because the students had papers of their facts so that they wouldn't be reading off the screen.
**Also, to be able to post these I had to make them a movie.  You may click pause at any time to allow more time to view the slides.

Star Gazing

Our class went star gazing tonight.  It was neat to see the full moon and Jupiter with three of its moons.
