Chalk Talk – February 1, 2013

Education is worth pot of gold This double rainbow over Colonel Johnston Elementary School Monday seems to symbolize the value of a good education which, for many, begins in the earliest grades of grammar school. However, since the rainbow is a special distribution of colors produced in a particular way with reference to a definite point — the eye of the observer — and as no single distribution can be the same for two separate points, it follows that two observers do not, and cannot, see the same rainbow, according to http://www.eo.ucar.edu/rainbows/. The rainbow seen by the photographer is unlike the same rainbow seen by different viewers at different observation points on Fort Huachuca.

General Myer Elementary School

On the 100th day of school, the General Myer Elementary School fifth-grade team worked towards having each class read 100 books and take 100 Accelerated Reading Tests with a passing grade of 80 percent or higher. All five fifth grade classes read a total combined amount of 562 books which was more than 100 books per class, meeting above the 100-day-of-school-goal! Way to go, students!

The fifth grade recently visited Buena High School to watch the Sierra Vista Symphony perform. Everyone had a great time and even dressed up. As they listened to the symphony conducted by Roger Bays, they heard the “William Tell Overture” performed live and were introduced to all the different sections of an orchestra.

This month the students are looking forward to a field trip to the Flandreau Planetarium as an extension to the current science lessons on the solar system. In reading and language arts, they are focusing on poetry and integrating technology as the students create a personal poetry book using the www.storybird.com website.

The entire fifth grade is working on science fair projects, and the science exhibition will be held at the end of February. Mrs. Tomlin and her class welcome Mrs. Capel to their class as she will be beginning her student teaching this semester.
