Last week students continued to build on their knowledge of the engineering design process. One group was able to design and construct a bridge that held 184 marbles!

Between the power outage and Halloween, we had quite an unusual week! Thank you to all the parents who provided food and supplies for the party and for the volunteers who helped set up, clean up, and run the cookie decorating stations. Thank you for all that you do!

Both classes were well behaved and showed exceptional manners. I...
