Fayette School News Kindergarten— We have been learning how to make number 6. We have to remember that his back is curved instead of straight like ours. Some of us are still having trouble knowing how many 6 means. We will soon be ready for number 7. Most of us can print our first name very nicely. Some of us have been trying to print our last names, too. We had to change our room around so we would have a place to put our paint easels. We will need to take turns painting. Jan Langerman, Wyatt Hayes, Karen Oakes, David Schnieder, and Stephen Baker have all had birthdays in March that we helped them celebrate. We took our Kindergarten newspaper for March home. It tells all the things we've been doing during the month of March. First Grade — Mrs. Scheidel In Social Studies we learned that astronauts are men who travel into space. Rockets are used to launch the astronauts. Many peo pie and many things helped to make Col. Glenn's trip into space possible and successful. What is wind? In science we learned that wind is moving air. Wind can be helpful in many ways. During our study of zoo animals each child was busy bringing pictures, drawings, stories, and other information about the animals. We particularly enjoyed having Jimmy's mother, Mrs. Wolcott, come to our room and show us colored slides of zoo animals which the family had taken during vacation trips. Sandra Briggs celebrated her birthday by bringing a candy bar for each of the pupils in first grade. Third Grade — We are pleased to have almost everyone back in school after having so many absent with colds and flu these past few weeks. Everyone has been very busy making reports in our room. We were given a set of encyclopedias not long ago. Since then they have had constant use. We have listened to some very fine reports about teeth, bones, and muscles in health class written by Sue Beck, Ellen Thomas, Doug Langerman, Nancy Ash, Debbie Rainer, Sherry Scheidel, Janis Aanes, Cheryl Stepp, Marsha Leverington, Shirley Buhman and Danny Bonjour. We have set aside the last period Friday to listen to reports about birds. We have read about the robin, the meadow lark, and the red winged blackbird in class. Everyone colors a picture of eacli bird which we study. Dwight Maurer brought us a tree whir!) birds nests and with little bi-ds which several have brought and set on the branches.

Gold Star papers were turned in this week by David Swehln, Dennis Martin, Marsha Frey, Bonnie Boulton, Rosanna Stepp, Linda Him- mcl, and Dawn Pattison. I would like to thank all the students and especially Mrs. Everett.. My student teaching has definitely been a wonderful experience. I feel that I have gone from a scared, inexperienced learner to a confident teacher. The students were wonderful and so good to work with. .1 have certainly en joyed each and every one of them. Mrs. Everett has been very patient and understanding. I am so glad I have had such a wonderful and excellent teacher to do my student teaching under.

We can find our prepositional phrases in our sentences and tell whether the object of the preposition is a noun or a pronoun. In arithmetic we have been multiplying fractions, with whole numbers. This is new work too. It is more difficult, but we enjoy learning new things. Mr. Jones gave us a map on which we were to locate 31 European countries and six bodies of water. Two pupils had a perfect score. Several others in the class did good work. Everyone is going to make a special effort to write a perfect spelling list Friday since this is the last week Mr. Jones will be teaching it.
