The Foothills Choir is back! They are already singing harmony and sound amazing. Their voices can be heard ringing through the halls every Tuesday and Thursday mornings. There is still room for any 4-6 grade student who would like to join.

Rubber Band Scientists!

Mrs. Elliott's class was challenged to come up with a new use for rubber bands.  One group created an earring holder with their rubber bands.  Each band holds three pair of studs or two pair of dangling earrings. Great job scientists.

"How To's!"

Submitted by corallee.findlay on Tue, 09/27/2016 - 16:32

Mrs. Elliott's class had a great and tasty time sharing their "How to Make a Cake" papers.  After sharing their papers, two students were selected to have their cakes made.  Our class learned that we have to be very precise in our writing. If the recipe called for two eggs, Mrs. Elliott put in two eggs without even cracking them unless the paper specifically said. She also added butter and cream cheese without unwrapping them.  Next paper, we will be much more precise as we give directions to another student when we complete our next "How To's."

Students in Mrs. Black’s 5th Grade Class learned about the scientific method. Students collaboratively worked together to build a ramp. Through trial and error they were finally successful. Great job!
