We have a lot to be thankful for here at Yowell. Some students in fourth grade have been working on a writing piece dedicated to something they are grateful for. Here are some highlights from Ms. Heaney's reading class. We hope that you have a safe holiday break and that you take this time with your loved ones to reflect on all the things that you have to be thankful for. https://youtu.be/BusptKXKLM4
Happy Thanksgiving to all! Here's one parade you do not want to miss! These students created some amazing character balloons and showed them off on Tuesday afternoon! Way to go second grade! https://youtu.be/mAKiEEmdOBY
We would just like to say thank you to everyone for their support during last week's production of 101 Dalmatians. We couldn't have done it without our volunteers, parents and amazing Yowell staff! We had a great time and can't wait for next year.

Mrs. Wheeler’s third grade class has been working on telling time to the nearest minute. This week students worked in cooperative learning groups to build an analog clock using unifix cubes to represent each minute. They also used the blocks to build the minute and hour hands, making sure the minute hand was longer than the hour hand. Then they took turns moving both hands to show different times. Students also used the Judy Clocks to practice reading clocks to the nearest minute and finding elapsed time in hour increments, by manipulating the clock and using it like a number line.
Ms. Erika and her students are working on identifying size of the problem, recognizing needs, and increasing the use of positive self-talk. Through self-monitoring, students are identifying their strengths and expanding their toolbox of healthy coping skills and effective strategies to help them be their best. Students are meeting their goals and celebrating the positive!
Mrs. Galenski has been busy teaching our students how to code. I think we have some future software engineers on our hands!
Some of our fabulous stallions are out here supporting CMS today and watching their production of The Little Mermaid. Check out CMS’s website for more performance times. You don’t want to miss this!
Happy Veteran's Day to all of those who have served or are currently serving. We at Yowell thank them for their service.
Mrs. Clark’s class followed a recipe while doing a sequencing activity. They made Pumpkin Fluff. Yummy!
Mrs. Woods' homeroom class enjoyed pajama day during their morning meeting and her reading class worked hard in the STEM Zone doing a breakout activity learning about the seven continents.
A note to all of our 101 Dalmatians families. Practice for cast and crew will be after school tomorrow. Pick up will be at 5:00 pm in the lower bus loop.

Mrs. Zajkowski’s class spent time engaging in science, reading, and math activities surrounding Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos. The students estimated and counted pumpkin seeds, wrote about designing an ofrenda, created their own Halloween slime, and tried stacking as many candy corn as possible!

Mr. Koch's class is learning how to create Food Chains. Here are a few that the kids created on their own.
Third grade got to take a field trip to Mountain Run Lake Park to see the lake, which is a surface water source that provides water to our community. On our way to Mountain Run Lake Park we traveled by several water towers to see where our community water is stored and past Lake Pelham, which is another one of our surface water sources. We played cooperative games like duck duck goose, kick ball and rock paper scissors.

Ms. Fabris’s class celebrated the 50th day in 50s style. They practiced counting to 50, made root beer floats, and measured using tootsie rolls. They sure did have a blast!
