Third Grade Paper Challenge

On Thursday, the third graders received a big math challenge from Mrs. Cavallo. The second graders have pencils, now the third graders have paper! Before getting their challenge, the third graders first needed to understand a few vocabulary words related to paper, like case and ream. They learned that in years past, we have just estimated how much paper we used as a school. This year, the third graders are going to find a way to track how much paper the school uses for the rest of the year. Mr. Pelkey will be reporting to the third grader teachers each time he takes down a case a paper, which the third graders now know contains 5000 sheets of paper. They will work on this for the remainder of the school year meet again in June to share what their strategies were and what they came up with! Good luck, third graders! 

News from Voyagers
Jack Frost was nipping at our noses!  The Voyagers braved the cold to enjoy a day of skiing at Jay Peak on Tuesday.  The temperature was low, the wind chill was even lower, but spirits were high as the
students practiced their skills on the slopes.  Thank you to all the parents and staff that volunteered to help out!
