Oly South 5th graders put their STEM skills to the test to today as they create their own balloons for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. Students had to build a structure that was at least two feet tall and could stand up straight without toppling over. As evident in these pictures it was a great success! We are so proud of all of the hard work they put into their designs. Way to go 5th grade!

As soon as you share the first photo of your kid, you're establishing their digital footprint. As kids get older and start creating their own content or engaging with others online, it's important for them to understand the tracks they're leaving behind and what those tracks might reveal. Parents can help guide kids toward creating the kind of footprint they can be proud of. https://www.commonsense.org/education/family-tips/k-5-digital-footprint-and-identity

Oly South 4th graders read a passage about going to a carnival and acted as “verb detectives”, circling different types of verbs they noticed. Then, they practiced writing alternatives to these verbs. Awesome work, Spartans!

Video: bit.ly/OlyDFV1 Many kids are already posting and sharing information about themselves. But in a world where oversharing might seem like the norm, it’s important for kids to think about their digital footprints. Listen to what these teens have to say about sharing on social media. Are you making the right sharing decisions?

Our 4th and 5th graders joined forces today to solve Math and Science tasks.  The Witches Brew, Plummeting Pumpkins and Glowing Ghosts were a hit.  Multiplying and graphing allowed for great collaboration.  It was a Fang-tastic morning!
