This afternoon we met Emily Ostrander, the Lyon County Conservationist, at the Lyon Manor nursing home. She started her presentation showing the students a penny, a compass, a picture of a car, and a warranty sign and asked them to try and guess the topic. She said the penny represented how much it weighs, the compass tells us it's good at knowing which direction to go, the car reminds us that it travels really far, and the warranty is to show that it's guaranteed to migrate to its destination and return every year. The children had several good guesses and were excited to see Emily reveal a real Monarch butterfly. The students learned that it takes many generations within the same family of butterflies to make the round trip from Canada to Mexico each year....starting with the Mother all the way to the Great Great Great Granddaughter.

Each year, the flu leads to approximately 36,000 deaths and 200,000 hospitalizations nationwide. The best way to prevent the flu is to be vaccinated. We urge you to get your child a flu shot!
We are pleased to announce that Sanford Rock Rapids Clinic will again offer flu vaccines to all children enrolled in grades K-12 in your school district. The in-school flu clinic will be held Wednesday, October 20, 2017.
We will bill your insurance for the flu vaccine if you have coverage. If you do not have insurance coverage, please indicate so on the attached consent form.
This year, the live influenza vaccine (FluMist) will NOT be offered in the United States. We will be offering only the injectable form of vaccine to our patients. To receive the flu shot for your child, the attached consent form must be completed and returned to the school prior to October 10, 2017.
For more information about this in school flu clinic, visit your school’s website or call the Sanford Rock Rapids Clinic at (712) 472-3716.
This quarter in Science we are studying Life Science. In the first unit we are learning all about plants. Mr. Pytleski came to our classroom today to help us take our classroom learning outside and give things a real-world perspective. He is the CL STEM coach, which means he is willing to provide support for lessons in Science, Technology, Engineering, and/or Math. On our walk to the CL greenhouse, Mr. Pytleski stopped a few times for the students to look around and identify different plants. Once they arrived there he reviewed the different parts of a plant. He told them that some plants, like a radish, only have one root (a tap root), while others have fibrous roots.
