Mayer - March 8, 2018

What a great day of learning!  The students are doing very well with their reading and writing.  We were fortunate to have Mr. Vickers come into our classroom today.  He talked about antlers and horns and the differences between the two.  Antlers are made of bone, shed every year and only found on males.  Horns are made of keratin(like fingernails), do not shed and found on both females and males.  The students were able to touch them and investigate the inside of them.  Please ask your child which wild animal has antlers or horns.

Please note:

  • No school for students tomorrow.
  • Book Exchange will be Monday.  All learning common periods were cancelled today.
