What an exciting day for fifth-graders!  Fifth grade students are encouraged to find a way to protect their egg from breaking when Salem City workers volunteer to come to the school and drop their eggs from way up high in the bucket.  It was fun watching and seeing all of the clever and creative ways that students came up with.  Their were several eggs that lasted to the last drop.  Great job students and a big thanks to the volunteers from Salem City for your help with this fun activity.

What's more American than first graders singing patritoic songs?  First graders sang their hearts out while performing for their parents.  All of their hard work and time practicing paid off, they sounded amazing and filled us all with a stronger feeling of patriotism.
