News from Voyagers

The Voyagers continue to light up their worlds as they explore electricity. This week the 
Voyagers took a trip to Ohio to visit with Mr. Andrew Campbell who lead us on a series 
of experiments and in-class models! We did this all on a virtual field trip! Pencils bubbled 
and bulbs lit up as we learned about circuits and had some fun.
A huge thanks to LEARNnco, Mr. Campbell and to Mrs. Wade who made our adventure possible.

The Phantom Tollbooth

The play has two performances this weekend. Friday evening at 7:00pm and Saturday afternoon at 2:00pm. We hope to see you there
