On Thursday, 4th grade students used hard boiled eggs to explore the 3 parts of the earth. The shell represented the crust. The students moved the cracks around to see they how work together. The white made up the mantle, the thickest part of the earth. The yoke was the core, which is made up of mostly iron and nickel. They also learned that the core is solid due to the pressure around it.
There will be no school tomorrow in Ironwood due to the extreme cold temperatures forecast. The windchill isn't expected to get above our threshold that allows us to have school until around 10:00, which would not leave us enough time to begin busing and safely get everyone to school. Evening athletic contests are cancelled, but JV and Varsity coaches may elect to hold practice once temps warm up. Coaches will be in contact with their athletes to arrange practice, should they so choose. Stay warm and safe, Everybody, and we'll see you in February!
On Thursday, February 2, conferences will take place for parents and guardians of students grades 7-12. Join us any time between 3:30-7:30. We hope to see you!
From Mrs. Clausen, 2nd grade teacher: I am so proud of the students of mine who work hard to follow the RISE expectations and try their best everyday. These students deserve to be acknowledged. All January they have been earning a pizza party and today we got to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Keep up the good work! You are all wonderful! I always tell them that true integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching.
