FIFTH GRADE-MS. CRIPPS

In the last bulletin, the fifth grade was incubating quail eggs.  Two of the quail had hatched, however, neither chick made it.  We were gifted with Rhode Island Red chicks and they have grown immensely since their arrival, and therefore have already outgrown their brooder.  As I type this article, they are trying to jump (and fly) out, therefore, they will be leaving for their new home today!  While we have had them, we have been able to learn more about prey, including their behaviors and camouflage, among other educational opportunities.  In other news, the fifth grade has been attending sign language class once a week and has learned signs to the song “I’ve Just Seen Jesus” by Sandi Patty and Larnelle Harris, which we performed at the last Mass before break.  It is the story of the Resurrection from Mary Magdalene’s perspective.  It was a success!  The fifth grade hopes you have a Blessed Easter!
