Image result for chicksIt’s Chick Season in Third Grade!
Guess what!! Mrs. Rowe’s and Mrs. Binder’s third graders hatched chicks this Spring! Mrs. Rowe brought in some eggs from her flock. Here are the answers to  some questions you might have about the project.

     Q: Why did you choose chickens to hatch?
         A:Mrs. Rowe has been doing this for about three years and thought it would be fun.  
Q: How long did it take for them to hatch
A: The eggs were put in the incubator for 21 days. Two of the chicks hatched a
    day early, one hatched a day late.
Q: Are you going to name them?
A:Yes, we already named two and will name the rest.  
Q: What are going to do after you bring them home?
A: I will watch them grow and when they get bigger they will join the other chickens at my house.
One of the chicks, the late one, had trouble getting out of it’s egg. We think it has Rye neck which is caused by a vitamin deficiency. It can be fixed by giving the chick vitamins. So, that is what they are doing.

Human Kind on Mars? You’re probably thinking ‘That’s impossible! There is no way someone could survive going to Mars! We have only really sent rovers to Mars surface. How could that even be possible?’ Well, Mars One has started a plan for settlement on Mars.
Mars One even has astronaut candidates. They will need three astronauts.Click this link to see an astronaut selection round three trailer.

Over the internet in the beginning of March there was an argument. Everyone has been arguing about the color of the dress- is it blue or black, or white and gold? The actual color of the dress was blue and black but the lighting was tricking your brain into think it was a certain color. Long story short everyone stopped arguing about it after a week or two. In the picture below the middle picture is the actual dress, and the ones on the sides are what people were seeing.

Courage and Strength in Numbers
By Sarah

March 7, 2015 marks 50 years since what many call: “Bloody Sunday”. On Sunday March 7, 1965 over 500 courageous Americans began walking from Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama in order to protest against racial discrimination in voter registration. As these people were concluding their march, which ended on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Montgomery, Alabama, State Troopers began utilizing tear gas and bodily force to pressure them back onto the bridge. This violent scene was captured in photographs and videos that surprised and shocked the American nation. This day became known as “Bloody Sunday” as Americans watched the violence unfold.

In honor of these brave Americans and the 50th Anniversary of that day The President and the First Family, Representative John Lewis, and thousands of Americans walked over that bridge in Montgomery, Alabama. After the commemorative march, the President and Representative both spoke about the emotional day in 1965 and the heroic people that changed the United States forever.
Poetry Contest
Allison M

On April 21, 2015 CCS will have a poetry contest from grades 1st through 8th. They will have to pick a poem to recite in class. The teachers set a date for the in-class contest whenever they have time but Mrs.Bidwell has to know before the 16th  of April. There will be 3 contestants with 2 runners-up in case one of the contestants gets sick. If not, they can still recite their poem but can not compete for first, second, or third. Good Luck To All!

Oh, the places You’ll Go when you Read
Read Across America, 2015
The birthday of Dr. Seuss was here
an author whom we celebrate every year!
So here is a summary coming your way
so y’all know how we celebrated every day!   

        “Oh, the Places You’ll go with a Book “
                     was the theme this year.
                    SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
The week-long celebration of Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, commenced with morning announcements, during which editors from the Rams Record staff presented interesting factoids about Dr. Seuss and posed Trivia Questions which grades K-8 attempted to answer. Correct responses were collected all week and a raffle was held at the end of Friday. The winning class, Mr. Gagnon’s 6th grade homeroom, earned an ice-cream party on a day of their choice...most likely when it’s a tad warmer.
Throughout the week, students from k-4 participated in a Bookmark Contest  . Given bookmark templates, each student was challenged to design a bookmark around the theme, “Oh the Places You’ll go with a Book”.  There were many options such as:
    • Illustrate a favorite story and its setting.
    • Illustrate a scene from your favorite book.
    • Illustrate your favorite Dr. Seuss Book.
One winner was selected from each grade level and their names were announced at the Friday afternoon assembly. The winning bookmarks were made into full-color cardstock bookmarks, which were professionally laminated as keepsakes for each winner. All the entries will be reproduced on cardstock and disbursed to all the students, k-8.
On Wednesday, March 4 the Cat in the Hat made the rounds in the primary wing, stopping to read books to each class in grades k-3. The children were delighted!      
Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker
Doctor, Lawyer, Temperature Taker?
Rocket builder or astronaut
Have you given your future career much thought?
Oh, the Places You’ll Go, the things you might be
Dress the part for your classmates to see
Create a costume that you think will show
the job YOU’LL have and the places you’ll go!
Resa Audet, 2015
Where do you think your journey will lead you in 20 years? Friday, come to school  dressed for the career you think you will have.
And Come, they did! Stepping out of cars and off school buses early Friday morning were chefs (including Mrs. Reeves), police officers, underwater divers, Shark tamers, NASCAR drivers and a motley collection of other professionals. Some teachers arrived in unusual attire as well. Who’d have thought that Mrs. Binder,  Mrs. Carrier and Mrs. Audet had all planned to become medical professionals before opting for careers in education! Mrs. Rowe fancies herself a future farmer and Mrs. Dockham ….well, see for yourself!
The piece de’ resistance on Friday was a lovingly prepared lunch that would suit Sam I Am to a Tee! ON the menu?    Green Eggs & Ham, along with birthday dessert! Of course, no Read Across America week is complete without our awesome  Guest Readers arriving to share fantastic stories with our students in all grades! Thank you , Dr. Seuss, for allowing us to celebrate your birthday and the perpetual gifts you have left behind for us...in the form of your wonderful books! Til next year………
