April 30th at 7:00 p.m.
This year's theme is the Roaring Twenties and the Prom committee has been working hard to make sure everyone has a night to remember. Something new this year is a $5 charge to each student attending Prom, which will help towards the expense of putting on this event. Also new this year will be the imprinted souvenir glasses which each student coming to Prom will receive. Chris Ryals will again act as the D.J. for the dance that will follow Promenade. S.A.D.D. is sponsoring the after Prom party which will last from 11:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. Changing things up a bit, s tudents will begin their Promenade this year from the north entrance to the gym ("tornado alley"), so be sure to come early to get your seats to watch our student body dressed in their best. . . .
Wow, April has been a month of variety in my classroom! Sixth grade Science has been experiencing properties of matter and how they work, and seventh grade has been discovering the Sun, Earth, and Moon systems and are now moving on to the Solar System. Seventh and eighth grade elective has been learning about World War II and we had an amazing parent guest speaker that shared some priceless family artifacts from that era. Sixth grade discovered that there are actually four states of matter in our universe, not just three. We have done several activities including one where students get to pretend to be air molecules. In the air molecule activity, I would shout out a temperature and students would have to react to that temperature as if they really were an air molecule. . . .
