April 7th




CoCoRaHS Citizen Science!  Citizen Science is happening on Quest.  We are measuring rainfall and inputting it on a national website.  We even have our own Weather Station name!  Duxbury 0.4 SSW.  Here is a the first episode of The Cloud and the Crowd about about CoCoRaHS and Citizen Science.  We got .93 inches of rain in our last storm.  That qualifies as a "heavy rain."  We agree!

Boston Field Trip
Here is the information for now.  It is on June 7th.  If you would like to chaperone, please email Mrs. Williams.

Video to Russia
As a part of our penpal exchange, we are sending a video to our penpal school in Tikhvin, Russia.  Students will say hello to their penpals and say a sentence about themselves.  We hope to receive one in return!  Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Here is a link to the video.
