Fifth Grade Committee
5th Grade Committee: Our next meeting will be Tuesday, April 10th at 10 AM in the Sargent Cafeteria. Our big agenda items will be Empathy Team kickoff, Class Gift planning, and Brooks Day. If you have any questions, please contact Kim at KimHearst@comcast.net
Empathy Team: Time to start gathering your old suitcases, duffle bags and book bags. Our 5th grade class will be holding a drive to collect bags for Suitcases4Kids, an organization founded by our own Sargent parent Ron Nickerson. (check out www.suitcases4kids.org). “In almost every musty basement, garage, or attic, there is an old, forgotten suitcase that has long since been replaced by shiny new luggage. And all around the country, when foster children are forced to move their belongings, they throw them in trash bags, putting their prized possessions into containers for garbage”. Let’s help Suitcases4Kids help these children move with dignity. Our drive will be held on Saturday, April 28th on the Sargent Grounds. Look for flyers coming home in April.
North Andover Enrichment Council
The Museum of Science will be coming to School on Monday April 2nd to present Weather, Wind and Water to our 3rd grade students! Through a variety of exciting hands-on experiments, students will learn about the relationship between air temperature and air pressure, how the Earth’s position and orientation determines seasonal changes in weather, why land and water change temperature at different rates, and much more. It will be an exciting afternoon for our 3rd grade scientists at Sargent School!
