Happy World Down Syndrome Day from Mrs. Thornhill’s First Grade Class!
On March 21, we will celebrate World Down Syndrome Day! This is a day to come together to celebrate our differences and our abilities! We will be rocking our mismatched socks tomorrow and we hope you will join in on the fun too!
Attention 5th grade parents! Don't forget to get those baby pictures in! See the attachments for more details.
The Yowell "mathletes" did an awesome job at the county Math 24 tournament last night. Students who made it to the championship round are: Anish Mishra, Parker Pratt, Wyatt Wilk, Jonathan Lizama, Ben Koch, Katherine Soderholm and Reid Green. Special congratulations go to Anish Mishra who won 2nd place in 3rd grade and Jonathan Lizama who won 3rd place in 4th grade.
Mrs. Zajkowski’s students had some fun today guessing if baby Z would be a girl or a boy. First they made predictions. Then they used the data to figure out which fraction and percentage of the class voted for each! Afterwards they did a science experiment to make “elephant toothpaste”. They had to mix different ingredients, and discuss solutions, and mixtures. Finally it was time to put the concoction together. Drumroll please...It’s a girl! For the record, 65% of students guessed boy, and 35% guessed girl! Congratulations Zajkowski family!
