Week of April 25

This week we will finish Space Science Unit 2.  This unit's big idea is planets and a variety of other bodies form a system of objects orbiting the sun. On Wednesday we will begin Unit 3, The Earth-Moon-Sun System.  This unit's big idea is Earth and the moon move in predictable ways and have predictable effects on each other as they orbit the sun.

Monday: Review for the test tomorrow.  Here is a video series students can use for review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7t099KIWVVs
Tuesday: Test on Unit 2
Wednesday: Earth's rotation and revolution lab
Thursday: Seasons Model lab
Friday: No class due to choice field trip.
I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily.

You have the power to be a superhero! Join us as we WALK to raise our goal or $10,000 in the Stargate School: Walk to Stop Diabetes on April 27th to support our three students and two teachers living with type 1 diabetes!

Your donations towards our Stargate School: Walk to Stop Diabetes stays right here in Colorado to support the American Diabetes Association’s Camp Sweet Pea for kids ages 5-10 years old and Camp Colorado for kids ages 9-17 years old living with type 1 diabetes. Campers can enjoy traditional camp activities, while being surrounded by health professionals who provide continuous medical supervision. Campers learn how to manage their own diabetes-care, while interacting with counselors who may have diabetes and serve as positive role models. They meet friends who understand what it's like to be a person living with diabetes and have fun at summer camp - just like any other kid! Every dollar you donate helps to send a Colorado kid to diabetes camp!

Donate directly on our webpage:


Here’s how it works: By MONDAY, APRIL 25TH turn in your envelope to your Homeroom teacher or Advisory, totaling online contributions as well as any enclosed cash/checks (payable to American Diabetes Association). The homeroom, advisory group, or staff group with the highest fundraising will receive a LUNCH PARTY, provided by our friends at the ADA.

Then, on April 27th, be sure to join us (along with your fellow students, parents and friends) for a Pep Assembly at 12:30pm, followed by the Stargate School: Walk to Stop Diabetes. Also – the first 300 students or staff members to donate $25 or more get a T-shirt to wear on the Walk! 

For questions, please reach out to Mrs. Pecosky, Teacher Sponsor (deborah.pecosky@stargateschool.org) or Adrian Miller, Parent Champion (amillers@comcast.net). Thank you for making an impact here in our community and for supporting Camp Colorado and Camp Sweet Pea!
