Thank you!

  We are very thankful for the many people and organizations involved in providing glasses to our students who need glasses to see clearly!  Our students have received their new glasses and they look fantastic!  Thank you to the Chestertown Lions Club, The Shelly Foundation, Eliott Fuhrman, Tara Quinn and Dr. Rob Able for this very special opportunity!   

Thank you Pastor Dave of Olivet United Methodist Church in Galena!  We appreciate you taking the time to set up your trains and for spending the day with us so that our students could enjoy watching them!  It is always a special treat when you do this for us every year!  Thank you!

Chemical Reaction Science Experiments In The Classroom

Mrs. Kennedy's class made crystal snowflakes!   Students measured hot water and borax, used food coloring, glass beakers and magnifying glasses.  They studied Snowflake Bentley, who is one of the first known photographers of snowflakes and students also learned how snowflakes are formed in clouds by dust and water vapor.  They discussed water molecules and the meaning of the word dissolved and compared their observations to the process in the clouds that creates snowy weather.
