Be sure to ask your child about science lab this week.
They participated in a lab about genetics where they had a chance to create their own “Smiley Face Traits”. They learned about dominant and recessive genes, charted their family traits and created sketched “smiley faces”, based on the indicated traits. This lesson was followed up in computer class where they used the drawing tools in Microsoft Word to create a digital version of their sketch.
The week started off with a fun filled Halloween parade, where the students had a chance to dress up in costume and trick-or-treat with their classmates.
Perhaps the most exciting part of the week, was when our students got to see a drone flying on campus and learned all about it.
