Swimming
We are swimming this week – Tuesday through Friday. The cost is $12. Please send the permission slip and swim gear. Suits and towels can dry at school overnight.

Options
It was a successful week of Options. Students participated in a wide variety of classes including arts, crafts, sports, dance, cooking and science topics. There were many 4th graders from 209 who took on leadership roles and taught classes.

March Madness in 209: Book Edition
The titles have been selected and the pairings will be posted on the bracket poster in the hall. This week students will spend time writing persuasive paragraphs to present in an effort to sway the reading audience in 209 to vote for their title. Let the tournament begin.

Junior Achievement
Our Junior Achievement day was packed with learning activities. The topics included city zones and how a city planner works, earning, saving, spending money and paying sales tax, being consumers (paying for goods and services), entrepreneurship.
Our presenters were very energetic and kept the kids engaged.
