Fun at Math Night

Students and their families enjoyed a night of math activities. Mrs. Schafer's room was full of math games, in Mrs. Fry's room you got to make your own party mix, the computer lab showed off some of the technology we use with math, and in my room we worked on our problem solving skills. Philip was the winner of the circus peanut and candy corn jar. His guess was only 1 away from the right answer!  Thank you Philip for sharing your prize!
Emma and her mom try out Rush Hour.

Philip and his parents try to figure out the giraffe question.

Traighton and his family are working on the cheetah question.

Fire Fighters Visit

Today the fire fighters reminded us to not hide from them in a fire, to have two ways out of every room, and to have a meeting place. Don't forget to check the batteries in your smoke detector!
Mr. Spahn shows us the Hanover fire truck.

A former Mrs. Reese third grader, Adam Krug, shows us the Elizabeth pumper truck.

"Grandpa" shows Landis how to use the hose to put the fire out!

Let's hope this is the only time I have to be in an ambulance with the third graders!

Another former Mrs. Reese third grader, William Frazier, shows us that we shouldn't be afraid of the fire fighters when they are in full gear.

Edgar shows how to put out a fire on our clothes, stop, drop, cover, and roll!

Emma is showing off her fire hat! Thank you fire fighters for the hat and bag of goodies!
