Today we did an egg-periment in science.  Students created a prototype egg transportation system.  They tested their prototype by dropping it from 2 meters to see if it kept the egg safe.

 Thank you to the moms who planned a fun Halloween Party!  The students really enjoyed it!!

Students began to practice dividing two-digit numbers by one-digit numbers.
