- 6th grade science 10-16-11

6th graders have been studying astronomy.

For the first few weeks we have learned many specific facts about our solar system focusing on each planet and their moons. On friday of the last few weeks we went to the computer room to do more in depth research.  Go to and check it out. (There will be a science test next week).  Then we will continue to focus on the Earth, its moon, the moon’s phases, gravity, and the tides for the rest of October.  Ask your 6th grader to bring their science notebook home to review their notes and all that they have learned.

I just wanted to thank all families for helping with our fund raising efforts–and there have been a lot:

Joe Corbi (to benefit whole school),

Magazine drive (to benefit 5th and 6th grade),

Gourmet food basket raffle (to benefit 5th and 6th grade),(your students can pre-sell tickets)

and take a guess (of some item in a jar)  to win snacks for extended day (both basket and guess how many? will be at the craft fair 5th and 6th grade table)
