Spring  Break!!!


Are you looking for a perfect place to spend spring break?  An amazing place to relax? An awesome place to have some fun?  We have some pretty cool ideas for you! If you want to see some pretty sights, you should go to Sun River. You can swim, golf and go on a bike ride or if you like sports, you can play soccer, baseball, tennis and more in your yard!! If you want to go camping and you don't know where to go, you can go to Nehalem Bay. If you are in the mood for sports there are a lot of things to play, there are many trails to go bike riding. Also if you have been to the ocean and you want to go to a more relaxing place you can take a nice walk to the bay.

I hope you like our ideas!  Have a great Spring Break!

Ahh, electricity. Isn't it just a wonderful thing? It powers our lights, our phones, our computers, our video games, and lots of other things that we use CONSTANTLY. Can you imagine what our world would be like today without it? We're talking about electricity, I guess we could say what we're doing in science at school. Electricity! In science, we have been making a light bulb light up, and a motor run. We have been experimenting these things and also learning more and more about this wonderful thing. We have learned that electricity only flows in either a circle, or an oval, and has to be in a closed circuit, A circuit is something that lets electricity flow from one end of the source to the other end, otherwise you won't get the electricity flow from the source to the receiver.(The source is what the electricity comes from, and the receiver is what gets the electricity.).


Well, you probably know A LOT more than you've known before reading this, but isn't electricity just a great and wonderful thing?

Let me fill you in on two things we do at recess.There's a spin wheel at the track. It's a very fun activity it was built in 2013. 3 people go on at a time or 2 and sometimes even 1 person. We like it because it’s something to do with friends .There is also a track people run walk or jog you can get a track pass and if you run or walk all 24 laps you can get three little feet if you save up 24 little feet you can get a BIG foot! This track was made for running jogging or walking.

Thank very much you for reading the 2 things we like to do at recess!!!!!!!!!!
