After looking at the posters and listening to the explanations of the experiments – my conclusion is that my hypothesis is correct- the 5th grade science fair is spectacular this year.
The student council, led by Mrs. Lani and Mrs. De Cleene, have started a campaign to “Rock the Test”! There will be a special effort by this group to encourage our students to do their very best on the MAP test this year.

While the seventh graders were away at Camp U-Nah-Liy-Ya, the sixth and eighth graders constructed a Rube Goldberg machine – a complicated machine to accomplish a simple task. The task was to drop a plastic bottle into a recycle bin. Our future engineers were hard at work for two days. This task requires a large amount of good old-fashioned stick-to-itiveness. Many groups achieved one success and thirty, forty or fifty failures. The failures made the success sweeter, just listen to the cheers in the background of each video.
