Fayette School News Fifth Grade — Mrs. Everett's We have completed our first semester's work and are now launched on a new schedule and one new subject. We are taking health this semester. We have also started the S. R. A. Reading Laboratory. We started learning about the Middle States in social studies this week. Rosanna Stepp has gone to Washington, D. C. with her father and plans to bring back some information for us. In health we are learning about the large parts of the body and the large organs contained in the trunk. Everyone is to be weighed and measured so that we can see how much each one grows from now until the end of the year. We plan to carry on science experiments on Friday in place of health as part of our second semester work. Letters have been written to various towns in the East requesting informational material for social studies. This was one of our language activities. Parent-Teacher conferences this week on Thursday gave the pupils a short vacation. Report cards were given to the parents at the conference. Next week we will be taking the Iowa Basic .Skills Tests. These tests show us what areas we are low in compared to other fifth graders in the state, what areas we are high in, and help us know which skills we need to work harder on. Beginning Jan. 29 we will have a practice teacher from Upper Iowa university in our room. right? Wednesday was Shirley and Gerald Miner's birthday. It also was Mr. Powis' birthday. Shirley and Gerald treated the class to homemade butterflies and roses. Everyone should have his report card by now. If you aren't pleased with some of your grades, why not work harder and bring them all up to A's? We now have $19.61) in our room treasury and $42 in the office safe. Seventh Grade — by Peg Maxson Thursday, because there wasn't any school, we had a sledding party out on Martin's hill. We had lots of fun. Mrs. Austin, Mrs. Nadeau, and Mrs. Maxon made cocoa so if we got cold we could warm up. Mr. and Mrs. Alshouse, Mrs. Culligan, Mrs. Weyant and Mrs. King came along to chaperone us. Thanks very much to all of you for coming especially since it was so cold. Also thanks to those who made cocoa. In science we are studying about the human body. Many of us have already learned the 20 bones we are expected to learn. We learned that instead of telling someone your fingers or toes were cold, you could tell them how cold your phalanges were. Tuesday we had a test over these 20 bones, but no one got them all correct. I guess that means we had better start studying, Special Education — Mrs. Swartz Everyone enjoyed a day of vacation while parent teacher conferences were being held on Thursday. Arnold and Marcella are enjoying their work in Driver Education-working to learn something of our laws pertaining to driving before they take their tests for permits. Marcella and Donna will soon Ix? starting some sewing projects in their home economics classes. Donald was ill a day and a half with a cold. John wove a very colorful, attractive wool rug working the bright green, blue and red woolens into strips through the neutral gray- green background. Donna has begun a rose- colored rug. Others are waiting to use the loom as their turns come.
