News from the Explorers

During WIN time on Tuesday the 10th of January the Explorers played Jeopardy on the topic of Matter.  During the game, they had to answer questions about the different states of matter, how matter can change from one state to another, and results from experiments that they had observed and conducted.  Some of the questions were pretty hard when they were asked about things like sublimation, viscosity, and Bose-Einstein condensate.  However, the Explorers were up for the challenge and they had a fun time in the process.  


Raiders Got Talent came to a close on Friday with our many winners receiving their trophies. It was so exciting to see how much talent SACS students have, and how supportive everyone was of their friends. Thank you to our performers and audience - keep practicing because we can't wait to do it all over again next year! Rock on, SACS! You are all winners in our books!

News from Kindergarten
The Kindergarten Classes read many books about Gingerbread Men.  They culminated the week by making Gingerbread Houses.

Beginning Band Concert

The Beginning Band, led by Mr. Mehaffey, played to a packed house in the library Friday afternoon. If you couldn't make it, not to worry, it was videotaped and will be posted to the school website. As soon as the concert video is posted, the link to it will also be posted in the Daily Announcements.
