Here’s the scoop:

Third/Fourth grade SAGE classes have finished the Bubble.ology unit and are beginning their work creating a colony for the year 2211. There has been some great discussion and some imaginative debate about what that colony will need to function as a society. It’s been fun for me to hear all the ideas that have popped up. As we move forward, the class will work in groups to build the buildings and homes that fit the budget they have been given and then will plan the layout of the city. I will be posting pictures as we get further into the unit.

Fifth grade at Sunny Hills will complete the Paper Towel Testing Unit this week. Look for their publication on the website soon with information to inform your paper towel purchasing. They have done a great job designing investigations that are fair and accurate, so I think we can rely on their data!

Fifth grade at Discovery is continuing to work on their robotics unit. This week they are beginning to design the obstacle course for their robot to navigate at the Robot Rodeo in January. Things have gone pretty smoothly so far, so I have high hopes of some great programs.

As we approach Thanksgiving, I want to express the appreciation I have for your support of our HCAP programs. I also am grateful that I get to work with enthusiastic, motivated and curious children. I have a wonderful job!

The students in the SAGE program, along with their teachers, want to thank the Issaquah
Schools Foundation for their donation of LEGO EV3 Robotics Kits. These kits allow all 5th
grade SAGE students to participate in this great STEM activity. ISF supports our students
with contributions made to their organization by the Issaquah community. Find out how you
