The Dance Festival began with:
Discovery Gateway came and did a Reaction Time Assembly for our fifth graders. The students learned about matter, physical changes, and chemical changes. They observed several experiments as well as performed some as well. Not only was this a great learning experience, but the students had a lot of fun!
This is Zander Oryall. He won a bike through the school lunch coloring contest "My favorite place in the United States". He worked with his teacher and she helped him use stencils to make a picture of Elk hunting in the mountains which is indeed Zanders favorite place in the whole world. He just got back from hunting with his family this year.
