Electricity Show Assembly

Yesterday the science center visited to present to the school the electricity show. Not only did Mr. Musselman and Ms. Pavlicek stop by, but a special visitor was here too! Mr. Papodonis was here to help present in the show. Mr. P. was the founder of the Burlington Science Center over 20 years ago. Students learned the difference between conductors and insulators. They learned about static electricity, lightning, and what a Van de Graaff generator is and demonstrates. Student participation was involved and a few volunteers were from our third grade classes. Check out the pictures below for a little peek into what the students saw yesterday!

Dr. Seuss High School readers

Today we had some high school friends visit to be our special Dr. Seuss readers. These young ladies are former Memorial School students, Miss Danielle & Miss Kerri. They had some good information about Dr. Seuss to share as well as read two of his books to the students.

Dr. Seuss note from Librarian

Dear 3rd Grade Parents,

This week in your student’s library time, we will be listening to the story “Bartholomew and the Oobleck” written by Dr. Seuss in 1949.  The students will be also be making a small amount of oobleck to observe and students will be touching it with their hands to feel the different properties of the substance.  I wanted to let you know that this project involves a food ingredient.  Oobleck is made of cornstarch and water.

Please let me know if you have a concern.
