Feedback Request
Be sure to complete your Family School Partnership Survey that Ms. Livingston emailed about earlier this week.    This is important feedback for the school, and we use this information to improve our school and its learning environment.  Deadline is
December 16th.  If you don’t want to do the digital copy, there are some paper copies in the school office.  Again, your feedback is so valuable, so please take the time to get it done today!

Help us get a 3-D Printer!!
We have launched a second Donors Choose campaign.  Donors Choose works just like KickStarter or GoFundMe, but they are specific to meeting the needs of schools and classrooms.  Ms. Norris is fundraising for a 3-D printer.  This piece of equipment can give our students an opportunity to utilize team-work and problem-solving skills.  Students will have an opportunity to propose, develop and perfect possible solutions developed around specific projects.  To support this project, please visit: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/stem-3-d-printing/2316896  Please share this link with your friends and family, too.  Anyone can support the project from anywhere!
