Our 3rd graders have been studying electricity and all the different ways to make it work. We have had fun using the kits to create light energy and sound energy, among others. Students also had a blast seeing all the ways static electricity, using balloons and combs, can have an effect on salt, sugar, and tissue paper.
Good Hope Presbyterian Church recently donated $533.00 to the Weekend Snackpack Program. This donation was matched by an anonymous donor and will benefit the students of Flat Rock and Iva Elementary! Starr Baptist Church also supplies approximately 20 snackpacks each week to the students of Starr Elementary. Anderson Three is blessed and truly thankful for the love and support of our schools from the Starr and Iva communities.
Third graders are researching problems within the environment caused by human activities or a natural disaster. They will create a working solution to solve the real world problem they discover.
