Dear Parents,

   The children are learning a lot and having fun here at Eastern!  The students are discovering a great deal about problem solving,

study skills, technology and a whole host of interesting science and social studies topics.

   In Social Studies class, the students have been learning all about economics.  The children are learning all about product and services,

supply and demand as well as the factors of production.  the students are even creating a product or a service, using recycled materials, 

to sell on Market Day, May 22nd.  Ask your child all about it.

  In science class, the students are learning all about light and they will soon learn about sound energy.   The children learned

how light travels and how it can be reflected, refracted and absorbed.  They also investigated how colors of light mix to make other

colors of light.  They enjoyed discovering what happens when you shine one wavelength of light on a colored object. 

The children also learned all about sound.  the kids investigated how sound travels, that sound needs matter to vibrate and that sound

travels different speeds through different mediums. 

 Ask your child to tell you everything they learned about sound!

   I hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather and getting outside and enjoying nature with your family.  If you have any questions

or concerns, please contact me here at Eastern.

Thank you,

Mrs. Freundlich
