Rubik’s Cube Competition

Way to go Highmark!!! We took 2nd place at the Rubik’s Cube Competition on Saturday. The group competition consisted of 8 students, and collectively they solved 25 Rubik’s Cubes in 5 minutes and 26 seconds. We had 9 Highmark students compete in the solo’s as well. Five of the nine kids on the team were from our class and they all did amazing (the competition was even on Channel 2 News that evening). After the students were finished, each school picked an adult to represent our school, and they each had to solve one Rubik’s cube. Ryan’s brother-in-law Chase took the win for our school! It was so much fun and I am so grateful to have been a part of it.

I hope you are all enjoying your spring break! Make sure the kids get all rested up- SAGE testing starts a couple weeks after we get back. I will be checking my email every couple of days during spring break, so don’t hesitate to email if you have any questions.

Thank you for having such awesome, amazing kids and for being such supportive parents!

Class Picture Day

Class Pictures Clip Art

Class picture day is on March 7th (YES- the same day we go to JA BizTown). This is going to be a very chaotic morning so PLEASE have your child at school by the time the bell rings at 8:20. They are going to start the 5th grader’s pictures as soon as the tardy bell rings so we can get them over with and get straight on the bus.
