Yesterday's WIG assembly featured several teachers strutting down the red carpet wearing hilarious wigs. But this assembly was really about introducing this year's wildly important goals for the whole school. The first WIG is for the entire school to collectively move up 1,800 reading levels. The second WIG is for all students to be in their classroom by 9:00 90% of the time. This will take extra help from parents to make sure that kids get out the door on time. The rewards for reaching the reading WIG is that the kids will have a water party at the end of the year. If a class also reaches their attendance WIG, then the teachers have to get wet too!

We can't wait to see the kids' progress!

In science we were investing the forces acting on the water bottle for a successful flip. Students determined that it's most successful with about 1/4 a bottle of water. They know that gravity is acting on the water, but with only 1/4 of the bottle filled there is a force holding the water in the bottom of the bottle, making it more balanced for a land.
