This week was our annual Science Fair.  All 3rd – 5th graders were responsible for completing a project and the younger students were responsible for class projects.  However, many of our primary students conducted individual experiments and submitted them.  Seventeen of the students were selected to move on to the Austin Energy Regional Science Fair. We wish them the best of luck:  Will S., Syndey K., Ella M. Noor E., Kyle R., Kate I., Emma D., Erin S., Jake O., Lauren L., Kenzie M., Sam M., Daniela D., Jonathon S., Grace L., Zeeshan Y., and Emma N. 

We had lots of fun today with Student Council College Spirit Day.  It was obvious that we live in Austin.  The Longhorns were definitely the most popular.  My poor Texas State Bobcats didn't have a big showing. 

The Student Council also started their next service project.  They are collecting items for some students in Uganda.  They spent some of their meeting counting pencils and labeling atlases for the students.

Tomorrow some of the OHE Lego Robotics teams are competing.  One team showed Mrs. Baxter and myself part of their project.  It was quite creative and useful.  We wish them lots of luck also.
Don’t forget next Saturday is the Pancake Breakfast at Applebee’s.  I’ve heard lots of teachers will be waitressing and maybe even a principal!
