Scientastic Day

Ms. Marucci and Ms. Fought taught the 5th graders about physics through the construction of popsicle stick catapults.  Students theorized on how different projectiles would launch, and then tested those theories using the catapults. It was a lot of fun!


We had our last field trip to Green-Wood Cemetery last week.  Thanks to Steve for leading 5-307 on two fabulous tours!

Last Family Friday

Thanks to all of our families for creating poetry with us and for helping us plant crops for our school garden.
