January 2014 Blog for Upper El

We hope you all had a Happy New Year!!

We had a great start to the year in the Upper Elementary Classroom, keeping busy after our nice holiday.

The South Sound United Under 11 football team came fourth in the Champion’s League. They would like to thank Coach Karen, Coach Chad and Coach Chris for their help and support throughout the season. They had a great season and look forward to the next one.

In addition to our activities in Math and English, we have also been learning about Food Chains, Rapa Nui, irreversible and reversible forces, dissolving, Plate Tectonics, Simple Machines and Astronomy.

Kids CARE has done some cool things too, like beach clean-ups and painting signs for the butterfly garden. They are planning a book sale next week to help PAWS.

A guest speaker came in to speak about birds and the habitats in one of our assemblies. She had a large amount of knowledge on birds of the Cayman Islands.

Mr. Chad and some of the other Upper El students planted a few more flowers in the garden. Please have a look at the garden the next time you are on our side of the school.

The Grade Sixes will be hosting a movie night on February 28th to raise money for their Cuba trip. More details to follow. We hope to see you there.
