Growing and Changing

Today we will be sending notes home for our 5th grade growing and Changing curriculum, starting next Monday.  This is an optional curriculum for 5th graders.  Take a look at the note, and have your student return it as soon as possible.

JCOS Bee Club: This summer I will be starting a JCOS Bee Club, where I will teach students about honey bees and honey bee management.  Just yesterday, I installed bee hives in three students' back yards, and will periodically go through the hives, manage them, and teach kids about the art and science of beekeeping.  Students will be in full bee suits while working the hives.  The three hive for Bee Club are near school, in the O'Kane Park area in Lakewood, and the Ralston-Central Park area in Arvada.  If you are interested in your student participating, just let me know, and I will keep you informed of Bee Club days.
