Dear Parents, 10-26-09


  We have an action packed week coming up! Tomorrow we will walk to Walker Methodist Health Care Center and have our first visit with the Elders on three different floors. We will do some getting to know you activities and a Halloween craft project.


  This Fall and throughout the year we will be recording the times of the sunrise, sunset and graphing the hours of daylight. As part of this project we will be viewing the sunrise from the rooftop of Barton School on Wednesday morning. I have scouted out the area with the engineers and have a plan to stay a safe distance away from the edges of the building. We will also have a parent to help supervise.


  Thursday we will go to the Ordway to see a dance performance.


  Friday is the first all school Spirit Day. The theme is to dress up in a costume. We will also do our annual Pumpkin Math activity. We will estimate and measure the weight, circumference, diameter, and number of seeds in 6 medium sized pumpkins. We will record and represent the pumpkin data in a variety of ways. If your child wears a costume on Friday I would suggest they bring a change of clothes so they don’t get pumpkin insides on their costume. If you could help on Friday with this project from about 9:00 to 10:00 it would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, or are able to help please leave a message at 668-7900.


Thanks,  Mark
