Students are traveling through time learning about influential people in history. Ozobots are small robots that can follow lines and detect colors. These robots (and students) learned about Harriet Tubman, Jackie Robinson, Ruby Bridges, Martin L. King, Jr., and Barack Obama.
Random Act of Kindness Day is February 17th. Farmington's SCA members made this display to help spread the positive message. They also helped to hang posters as we celebrate bold leaders in Black History this month.
To become more aware of the effects of water pollution, students participated in a simulated dolphin autopsy. They made observations, took measurements, and investigated the dolphin's external and internal features. They ultimately concluded that pollution killed the dolphin.

Every month students are recognized for displaying "Fantastic Fox" qualities. Students have been recognized for a wide range of reasons like study habits, good character traits, being a peer role model, and so much more. They are given yard signs to show the whole neighborhood!
This group of 3rd grade students worked together to engineer a Bit:Bot car. A Bit:Bot is a two-wheel drive robot vehicle that is controlled by a micro:bit. Their engineering skills and communication while collaborating where amazing. They are going to continue to work on their driving abilities.

A huge THANK YOU to our PTO and our wonderful parents who treated our staff with "OUR STAFF IS SOUP-ER" luncheon. It warmed our hearts and our bellies!
Ms. Tharp's 3rd grade reading class got to solve their first breakout! They worked down to the buzzer and enjoyed a sweet treat as their reward.
The World Cup may be over but excitement can still be found. 3rd graders in Ms. Harris' group created circuits to play soccer using Makey Makeys. They invited the principals in for some friendly competition. GOAL!
Mrs. McMahon's 3rd grade class had a very unique visitor today. She brought in a Virginia black bear rug to show the students the different traits predators have and the adaptations black bears have to help them survive in Virginia. The class has named him "Big Joe"!
This morning, 4th and 5th grade SCA members worked on a surprise for the staff next month. This is a combined surprise between our SCA and PTO. Shhhh! Don't tell the staff!

A time honored tradition in Kindergarten, gingerbread houses! This year we added a new tradition twist; we asked 5th grade students to help assist our younger foxes.
Playful learning filled our school today. From a holiday market, to passport travel around the world, a jingle bell run through the halls of the school, Colonial American games and more. We hope each fox and their den have a wonderful winter break!
