Fayette School News Ra+uAalia First Grade — Mrs. Meyer MI of our reading groups are finishing a supplementary reader this week. We will start reading from the Lyons and Carnahan Series next week. We have enjoyed the new science equipment which has been purchased for our building. We carried out an interesting experiment with steam last Saturday when we were making up one of the days we missed because of snow. We have finished our phonics workbooks so we are now starting to work with blends. This week we have worked with the "th", "sh", "wh", and "ch" blends. Paul Aanes and Ricky Hofmeyer were born on the same day so their mothers brought ice cream and cupcakes to celebrate their birthdays. We have recently celebrated John Singer's and Kevin Wenthe's birthdays also. They are all seven now. ~~*~ Mrs. Scheldel In science we learned that there are many different kinds of fish that live in the sea. A fish census was reported by a team of over 100 divers who gathered data from the Maine Coast to the Virgin Island?. They counted 53 species of fish in southern waters and 40 in northern. The fish rang- In Health we are studying our five senses. So far we have covered the eyes, nose, and taste. Paula Wendrich has gone to Florida for about 10 days to visit some of her relatives.

These divers need special equip ment for underwater diving, because of the darkness, cold, pressure, and inability to breathe under water. We are studying a unit on zoo animals and are learning many new and interesting facts about these animals. In health the unit which we are studying is. about school. We have missed so much because of the snow storms that it is hard for us to know just what day it is, but we are all happy to be back in school again. We hope we don't have to miss anymore days. In our study about trees we learned that trees need care. Trees may be injured in many ways. Ice storms and strong winds may break off branches. Lightning may strike trees and fire may damage them. People may trim trees badly. If the bark of a tree is removed, bacteria or insects may get into the wound. Treating injured trees is called tree surgery. Tree surgeons remove old and damaged limbs, paint cavities with a protective material, and fill deep cavities with cement. Special Education — Mrs. Swarti We learned a number of things from the bulletin board which we enjoyed during February. A calendar for the month had some important dates marked. We all knew Washington and Lincoln's birthdays and St. Valentine's Day. It was necessary, however, for each person to use the encyclopedia to learn that Thomas Alva Edison was b6rn on February 11, Charles Lindbergh on February 4, and George Herman Ruth, known as Babe, on February 6. Hot Lunch — Monday - Beef Burgers, green beans, bread and buttter, relish tray, peach sauce and rake. Tuesday - Chili and crackers, pear sauce, cheese squares, bread and butter, cinnamon roll and milk. Wednesday - Tuna and noodles with peas, cottage cheese, cheese sandwiches, potato chips, milk, strawberry short cake.
