This week in Room 9!   We are in the thick of the school year and so much learning is happening right now!  Students are researching the first explorers of the PNW.  You should check in with them to see who did find that infamous “Northwest Passage.”  In science we are continuing our study of geology with the rock cycle. There is even a song, “The rock cycle goes round and round…round and round...round and round...”  In writing, students were asked to write an informational essay about something they know well. I have seen essays on horses, 3D pens, and ……. What did your student write about?  We were fortunate enough to have a surprise visit from some of the team members of the Eugene Generals. They played hockey with us, signed a photograph and a puck for our classroom!  Awesome!


Keanan taking on one of the Generals, Nihal and Elliott learning about the rock cycle, Tam concentrating on geometry.
