Our sixth grade students in choir, band, and orchestra will be presenting their Winter Concert on Wednesday, December 19, at 2:00 in our gym. We are looking forward to hearing their wonderful performance!
Following their concert, the students will return to their classrooms, and we will be hosting an informational conversation with the administrators from the Forest Lake Middle School. It will be a time for parents to sit down and casually ask questions and learn about all of the opportunities that our Forest Lake Middle School can offer our sixth graders. Please mark the date on your calendars and we hope you can attend!
As part of their International Baccalaureate program, our second grade students applied basic engineering principles through making catapults. The students invited their families to a second grade breakfast and then to stay and see what they have learned about force, motion and fulcrums as they used their catapults!
Our sixth grade students have been applying engineering principles in the past couple of weeks by building a Rube Goldberg machine and a container that would protect an egg during an 18 foot drop. The work is part of their International Baccalaureate program unit of inquiry "How the World Works."
The cold weather season arrived early this year! We would like to take this opportunity to remind families that students do go out for recess in weather temperatures to -10 either actual or windchill. The students will be outside between 20-30 minutes, so please have your child bring their winter weather clothing including snow boots, snow pants, hats and mittens.
In addition, please be sure that we have your current phone numbers at school as all Connect Ed voice messages about school closings/late start will be sent to those numbers.
