Second Grade Scientists

  Students in Mrs. Jenna Reid's second grade class learned what it's like to be a scientist.  They worked in groups to decide if the eggs they were given were raw or boiled.  They did experiments and made hypotheses.  Then they wrote the results of their experiments.  Each group got to share their hypotheses and then got to test them out by cracking their eggs outside to see if they were boiled or raw.

     August 28, 2012, six hundred students and staff from Canyon Elementary sneaked into the gym during the morning announcements to surprise Mr. Harlan.  When he walked in, everyone clapped and sang Happy Birthday.  Mr. Harlan turned 50 on August 29th.  A Happy Birthday banner was made for him showing pictures of him when he was in grade school.  A group of students gave him a bouquet of black balloons and flowers and students and faculty wore black in honor of this momentous occasion.
