It’s going to be a great fall day to explore big trucks!

Tomorrow is the big day, it's Touch-a-Truck! If you have children who are into trucks, construction equipment, and big machines, this is a fantastic opportunity for them to get up close and personal with all of their favorites!

Today, Saturday, September 11th is a day of reflection, reverence, and sorrow. On Friday, the MSW Middle School class was visited by honored guests who are retired military service members from our community. The Middle School class is responsible for the raising and lowering of the flag on campus, and yesterday's guests provided their expertise on flag etiquette. Students learned the proper handling of the US flag and practiced folding it correctly. Outside, the class learned more about display standards and raising and lowering the flag. The MSW Middle School students will mentor younger children during future flag ceremonies on our campus. We thank the Bain family for generously sharing their time with our Middle School class and for their service to our nation.

Congratulations to our classrooms who rallied to put in the most miles, raised the most money, and had the most participation! The bar has been set for next year!!

We hope everyone had fun and enjoyed some time in nature!

Hey Hike-a-Thon-ers! The paper hike recorders are the official document, but if you enter your spring break hike mileage in the online hike recorder, we'll be able to get a snapshot of what classroom is doing the most mileage and how far we've gone as a school! Enter by tonight (Monday!) so it can be calculated and reported in this week's MSW Updates! (Hint: So far, the top three classes for mileage submitted are within 4 miles of each other! One additional hike entered could upset the standings!) theMSW.org/hike-a-thon The Hike Recorder is in the green section.

Students got up close and personal with some native birds on loan from Piney Run Nature Center during a kick-off for Hike-a-Thon today. Pictured here, students from Mrs. Neiko's Upper Elementary class examined the differences between native water fowl and a Cooper's Hawk typical of the birds you'd spot at Piney Run Park in Sykesville.

In Ms. Quinn's Lower Elementary class (grades one, two, and three), the students learned about French post-impressionist Georges-Pierre Seurat's works and then made their own "pointillism posies." They discussed primary and secondary colors and were introduced to the concepts of warm and cool colors. Everyone did the same picture twice, one warm, then cool. Here are the results! Enjoy!
