This Week in Science

Dear School Family,
 
Report cards should go home with students on Monday.  Make sure to look over them with your child and discuss the successes and ways to improve in any needed areas.  
 
We have started examining plant tropisms and work.  We are growing pinto beans at school to observe geotropism, phototropism, and the emergence of seedlings.  Make sure to ask your child what these terms mean.  This help so much in establishing new vocabulary.
