Say Something!

 These incredible fourth graders have important messages to share!  Inspired by the book Say Something! by Peter H. Reynolds, they created posters to decorate our classroom.  Students wrote these messages to remind us of what's important, keep us going when things feel hard, and to inspire others with their messages of hope, equality, kindness, and perseverance.

RES Teacher Parade

In case you missed it, here are some highlights from last week's RES Teacher Parade.  Although the teachers "paraded" around Richmond, the amazing students and families were the stars of the show!  Mrs. LeFrancois and I miss you so very much!

Lt. Margaret Taylor and other nurses on the USNS Comfort love getting your mail!

Robert's mom recently shared this note from their cousin Lt. Margaret Taylor. She, along with everyone on the ship, really appreciate receiving your mail! You can continue to write them letters or send them jokes or pictures. They have been working hard; they are now also treating patients with the Coronavirus. They appreciate all of the love you can send their way.  Here's what she wrote:

I wanted to also thank you for sending my mailing address to Robert’s classmates & friends in Vermont. We love all the artwork & fun cards. They have brought joy to our ward. We look forward to mail call during the week to see if there are any new letters with fun jokes, cartoon stories, or drawings. We have posted them around the nurses' station. The patients are able to appreciate them too as they walk around. I hope to be able to write some of them back as soon as I receive stationery from Mikey in the mail.

Attached is a picture of some of my coworkers showing their appreciation. Just know that we are smiling under our masks. I hope you and the family are doing well, keeping safe and sane.

Much love,
Cousin Margaret

Last Week's Learning

Check out what some of your classmates worked on last week!

Bella made this weVideo.  She clearly thought a lot about her classmates and put something in it for everyone to enjoy!

Brayden wrote an awesome poem inspired by spending time in his hammock in his "outdoor classroom" this week!

Ophelia practiced high-frequency words, wrote a letter to the nurses in NYC, and made a sign for her chicken coop!

Maya was invited to participate in an online National Geographic Bee recognition ceremony to celebrate her success as our school champion!

Three anonymous students completed different operations on MobyMax and earned certificates!

Tyler completed his research project about the 50 U.S. states.  He can tell you about capitals, professional sports' teams, and other interesting facts!

Teo doubled a banana bread recipe to work on adding and multiplying fractions!

I was out on an afternoon walk this week and came across this nest of baby snakes.  Caution: do not click on this video link if you dislike snakes!

Keep sending me pictures and videos of the amazing and interesting work you do at home.  I love seeing all of your interesting discoveries, hobbies, creations, and work!

Pet/Stuffy Day!

It was so wonderful to see so many RES students participating in the celebration on Friday!  The video is rather long, but it's worth watching.  We have an amazing community.  Thank you Mrs. Spaulding for putting together this fantastic video!
