We're back at school after an extra two days of vacation last week because of snow. We welcomed three new mid-year transfer students this week, one of whom is pictured here (from the back). We are continuing our study of the oceans and of fish and shells. A collection of shells from the Philippines was donated to the school and we are having fun identifying them and using them for scientific drawings. These shells can now be found in our Birches School Museum. More about the oceans soon!
