Thursday October 6th, 2016

Schools are closed for Friday, October 7th, 2016!

Today's Quote:

"We Read to know we're not alone."


All classes worked hard yesterday breaking down our hydroponic gardens to get all 700 pots under shelter. We then hurricane-proofed the remainder of the farm while talking about hurricane safety at home. This is BIG dangerous storm and everyone needs to be prepared. It is a double threat because the models show it looping out to sea and then coming back next week. Check out this model!


As you approach the center of a turning wheel, the speed decreases. Owing to this fact, does the exact center of a wheel rotate when the wheel turns? Explain.


(This should be written in your planner every day)
