What a fun day! This morning we did a STEM project with our kindergarten buddies. We made containers for eggs so that when we dropped them from the gym balcony, they wouldn’t break. They had so much fun designing their contraptions and over 1/2 of the eggs “survived” :) There are some photos and videos on the Holy Ghost Facebook page if you want to check it out.

Wow, only 2 days left! So hard to believe! One more FYI… On Tuesday, we’ll have a “hat day” that Emma won at the Walk-a-thon. So, if you’d like to wear a hat to school that day you may.
