St. Jerome School
During the month of October, the school had an assembly to kick off our Pennies for Pasta service project. Students learned about Leukemia and how it affects people of all ages. Through visual “blood cells and veins” they observed how the body is affected in a negative way causing Leukemia. They were each given a box and asked to collect pennies, other coins, and bills that will help in research to cure this disease.
Fourth graders have been very busy since the beginning of the school year. We just finished a unit in Science on the Scientific Method that included an experiment on gummy bears and how different liquids change the size, shape and color of the bear. The students were very excited to see their results. In Reading, the students are vigorously working on their Mystery Mobile. At the end of the month, they will present these creative reports to the class.
