While you’re watching the Macy’s Parade today, check this out. Our Manning 3rd graders spent some time learning about Tony Sarg, the puppeteer who created the first balloons for the Macy's parade. We read "Balloons Over Broadway" and reviewed many of our reading comprehension skills. Our students even made their own balloon creations to share. #TogetherWeSucceed

Thanks to local Veteran George Cullom who stopped by to share about his experience in the Air Force and what it means to be a veteran.

Some of the third grade classes at Manning celebrated the end of our Titanic unit this week with a Titanic Day. Students were encouraged to dress like they were passengers on the Titanic, researched real Titanic passengers, solved Titanic themed word problems, and did an ice berg challenge for science! It was a very fun day! #TogetherWeSucceed

Students in Ms. Roye’s second grade class have been learning about what science is, the different kinds of science and scientists, and science safety. They finished off the week with a fun experiment where they tested the buoyancy of four different cookies including Nilla Wafers, Chips Ahoy, Oreos, and Nutter Butters. They all sank except the Nilla Wafer. Making science fun! #science #RRGSDProud
