4th Grade Business Fair

Posted: January 30, 2016 in School

June 6, 2014: Z’s 4th grade class had to participate in a business fair. His class was put into groups and had to choose a country to research in order to come up with something to create, market and sell. His group chose Japan and created a toy. They named it the Ball Cup Toy and charged $6 classroom dollars. The business fair was fun and I think they created a great toy! Z was in charge of logging sales. He said that is not his forte since he knows he forgot to log several sales. I am certain he got distracted.

Leadership meeting at school

Posted: January 30, 2016 in School

May 28, 2014: The school had a leadership night for parents to learn about the Leader in Me program. They asked Z to speak during the meeting. He does such a great job! They announced to the parents that our school was named a Lighthouse school for the program. That is a huge honor for the school.

4th Grade Field Trip

Posted: January 30, 2016 in School

May 7, 2014: I can’t for the life of me remember what this field trip was about. I remember going to a big hall downtown Seattle and watching a presentation but I couldn’t tell you what it was about. It was a bit disjointed in my opinion. One of those “oh crap we need a field trip” kind of things so they did this. To me it didn’t go along with anything they were learning or anything. Whatever. Z says it was to Benaroya Hall and they learned about life on other planets. Clearly I did not leave with a warm fuzzy.

I chaperoned the trip and Z just hates riding the bus because of all the loud noise. He doesn’t hide his opinion of the noise either 🙂 Love my boy!

Pack Meeting and Webelos Stand

Posted: January 30, 2016 in Cub Scouts, School

May 6, 2014: Z ended his school day as crossing guard. He has always wanted to do crossing guard. That was his goal when he was in Kindergarten so today was pretty special to him.

Z also had another Cub Scout pack meeting. They had such a great demonstration of how to hand pound arrowheads, got to view several different animal skins and arrowheads, and learned about mountain men. Our Cub Master also unveiled the big Webelos stand she made and our boys will be the first boys on the stand for years to come. How cool H!! What a great idea!

May 2, 2014: Since the talent show performance from last year was a huge success for the boys, Z and L decided to do it again this year!

Leadership Day and meeting Sean Covey

Posted: January 30, 2016 in School

March 28, 2014: Z and I attended Leadership Day at Mukiteo Elementary and Sean Covey was a guest speaker that day. The presentation given by the students was pretty impressive. After the day of presentations and classes, Zachary got to meet Sean Covey.

March 26, 2014: The 4th graders had to participate in the school’s science fair this year. They had well over a month to come up and execute a science fair topic. Z’s topic was “What to Water With”. Basically he grew three sets of beans and watered each plant with something different. He recorded his findings over a three week period of time. He was to create a journal and a display board showing his finding. What did he water with? Funny you should ask. Water, capri-sun, and milk were his choices. Everything was fine until the plant watered with milk rotted and the house smelled like SHIT. Literally! It smelled like SHIT! But we decided to powered through for science. Well, after three weeks of it, I couldn’t stand it anymore and that dang plant being watered with milk had to go! Of course my boy thought the smell of SHIT in the house was funny! Silly kid.

Back to the serious part of the project. The best thing to water plants with is …. water! Z did an outstanding job in his project! He got the top score he could get for his project! I am so proud of him!
