    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    The groundhog did not see his shadow, so we are supposed to have an early Spring! Let's hope so! All this minimal snow and lots of ice is making the winter seem to drag on forever!

    Here are some of the great things that have been going on at White Rock over the last month:

    • White Rock 3rd graders traveled back in time as they packed up their belongings and made the long trip by ship to Ellis Island on January 23.  Students assumed an immigrant identity and went through all of the inspections (medical, legal, literacy and citizenship) at Ellis Island.   After passing the inspections, they were able to exchange currency, buy train tickets and purchase a snack.  What a great way to culminate the Social Studies immigration unit!

    • A 4th grade team of young investors took first place for the region in the Stock Market Game!  They also place 47th out of almost 600 teams in the combined region! 

    • In library classes, 5th graders began a unit on digital storytelling. Their first task is to create animations using Google Slides.

    We have recently completed our collection of items to be donated for the 100th day of school. Thank you to everyone that sent in toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner. These items are donated directly to families who need them!

    Our Science Fair is coming up next month. In the Announcements section to the left are links to Science Fair information and websites that students can use to get ideas. The Science Fair is a great opporutnity for our students to pick something they are interested in and learn about it. Please encourage your child to participate!

    4th Grade Classes competed for the Battle of the Books title in February. All students participated by reading up to 10 novels and competing at the class level to determine the team that would represent them against their grade level. Classroom teams competed with Mrs. Grisi's class wining the competition overall. It was a close battle which came down to a tie breaker question! Congratuations to all our participating teams!

    Some of our White Rock students had their stories selected and performed by The Story Pirates at a recent assembly. These students are invited to visit the Story Pirates Theater in New York City and have their plays performed live on their stage. Congratulations to the students shown below!
