Crew Members in Hawaii, Mars simulation

MARS Day • October 29

Next week is Mars Day!  We have plenty of exciting science activities lined up. Scientists from the Mars Space Flight Facility at ASU will introduce students to the first Maker-Space project at our school!

Students will also be asking questions to a crew member inside a Mars simulation going on right now in Hawaii. The scientist is Jocelyn Dunn.

Younger grades will have a hands-on session with Conrad Storad, an award-winning science writer and children’s book author on Mars.

For this year’s Poster Competition students are encouraged to design or build a space vehicle that would take humans to Mars. Winners of the poster competition will win a field trip to two space labs at ASU.

Students having a ball at Character Counts Rally

The rally started with the celebration of TRRFCC Kids for the Month for September (trustworthiness). Mr. Fernando and Mrs. Yurek got to the point with the DOT DAY winners. Each winner talked about what made their dot special. Kindergarten followed with a skit on Trustworthiness.  The skit mimicked a game show and the children performed small examples of what it looked like to be trustworthy and honest. Our cheer Prom Squad led by Miss Yamanaka, made everyone smile. Many parents showed up to support their cheerleaders. Principal Haarstad sang. "HOLD MY HAND" by Hootie and the Blowfish. The rally ended with a school-wide team building activity that included beach balls. Join us for the next rally on November 24.

Character Counts

Our October theme for Character Counts is Respect.

What does Respect mean? It means such things as the following: Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule; be tolerant and accepting of differences; use good manners, not bad language; be considerate of the feelings of others; don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone; deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements.  

October’s assembly will take place October 30th as there is no school for students on October 31st (teachers will be here for a full day of Professional Development). These Character Counts rallies are fun! There are skits, cheers, singing and other engaging activities. Parents and guardians: You are always welcome to come to school, sign in, and be part of this terrific event! As for Respect, please help model and reinforce what it means. Here at school we are having a contest to see which class comes up with ways to best illustrate this Character Counts Pillar. Thank you!
