Third Grade recently dissected cow eyes as part of their study of the human eye and how it works. Here is what some of the third graders had to say about it:
Nicholas: "I liked cutting away the fat and seeing all of the layers of the eye as you kept on going. "
Reese: "It was really cool to do the dissection ourselves. If you just watched it on TV you just see it but it's not as amazing as actually doing it yourself. It's like crazy and stuff."
Jonas: "I loved how the tapetum looked. It was shiny and a mixture of colors. I even saw violet in there. It amazed me."
Our Spring Play was a rousing success. Here are a few pictures from the show.
Field Day will be held on Friday, June 1st from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon at Kathy Lund Park in Rocklin. The students look forward to this event all year, but we can't pull it off without parent help! Next week, we will send out a signup for donations of food and easy-ups, as well as for volunteers. Please be on the lookout for the email and sign up if you can help. It's a fun day and all are welcome. Thank you!

Summer Reading Tips for Parents:
Efforts should be made during the summer to help children sustain reading skills, practice reading and read for enjoyment.
Reading builds visualization, thinking and language abilities. Taking the time to read with your child can help you evaluate your child's reading skills. If you discover that your child is having trouble with reading, he or she may have a learning disability. 80% of children with a learning disability have difficulty with basic reading and language. But early identification of such a disability gives a child the chance to develop ways to learn how to read effectively, and skills to lead a successful and productive life. A recent National Institutes of Health study showed that 67% of young students at risk for reading difficulties became average or above average readers after receiving help in the early grades.
