Stomp Rockets!!! Sixth graders each built a stomp rocket to launch. During the launch two teams of students tracked the rockets height and measured the angle from the ground at maximum height. They used a spotter they made with a protractor to measure the angle. After everyone launched, each student used the angles from the two teams to create a scale drawing. From the scale drawing they were able to calculate the height of their rocket. Much learning and a good time was had by all.
NOTICE: Today, Thursday, May 18, the school initiated a hold in classroom. The hold was lifted a short time later. A hold in classroom is issued when there is a need for personal safety and confidentiality of a student or staff member. Thank you for your understanding.

The fifth grade students visited Badger Creek Ranch in Coaldale this past week! We enjoyed taking a tour of their farm and learning about their operations. We met their guardian dogs, sheep, chickens, piglets, horses, and even Ms. May's pups and kitten. After our tour, we planted seeds in our starter pots (veggies and flowers of our choice) followed by a sack race and pass the egg game. Our students even got to name one of the piglets, now known as Smokey. Thank you to BCR for having us! We loved everything about our ranch experience.
