Vaughan Elementary School News – February 2, 2015

It's hard to believe we are already starting February and what a fabulous February it is. The last few weeks have been a very busy time at Vaughan. On Thursday, January 22nd, we held our Math and Guidance night. Miss Comer, our guidance counselor began the evening with information for our parents about motivation, bullying and homework helps. Then parents went to the grade level of their choice to learn more about the math curriculum that their students must master. Grade-level teachers shared strategies, websites and even helped parents brush up on some of their long-forgotten math skills. As a bonus, every parent that attended received a door prize of triangle math flash cards. We all had a wonderful time! If you were unable to make this event, please call Miss Comer or your child's teacher and they will be glad to send some resources home for you. Last week we held our annual Science Fair. We had almost 100 entries in the categories of demonstrations and experiments. Students presented some of the best projects we have seen. A special thanks is extended to Sam Moseley, Dr. Linda Mason, Carolyn, Harris, and Lynne Lassiter for serving as our judges. Winners in the Experiments category were: 1st place, Kenyon Richardson - “Soil Erosion”, 2nd place, Chaliyah Richardson - “Alligator Wire, Negative or Positive?”, 3rd place, Harley Daeke- “My Garden Is Sick!”, Honorable Mention, Noah Davis - “First in Flight”, Honorable Mention, Jacy Mills- Bubble Trouble”. Winners in the Demonstrations category were: 1st place, Katelyn Richardson – “Motor Brush”, 2nd Place, Danasja Davis - “Lava Lamp”, 3rd place, Adrianna Richardson - “Balloon Without Helium or Air”, Honorable Mention, Darius Hicks - “Our Solar System”. Congratulations is extended to these students for all their hard work! This week our fourth Family Reading Night is being held. This is a great opportunity to come out and read with your child and watch as they take Accelerated Reader Tests. We look forward to seeing you! Don't forget that Friday, February 6, there is no school for students because staff will be attending staff development.
