We have a new custodian. He is working for our regular custodian for a couple weeks. He's a jokester.
The blocks in our classroom spell be amazing. He will mess around with them and put them out of order and we never notice it. Today I noticed it and told Mrs. Cindy and we decided to get him back.
To get him back we our going to put fake bugs everywhere to scare him.

 Ashley's favorite sport is American football because it is fun and I like kicking and catching. Football is where there is two teams going against each team and you try to get the ball i the goal.

Oaks Testing

Dear Uganda friends,
At school we do a test called Oaks testing. Oaks Testing is a huge test that you have to do. The whole State of Oregon has to do the test. The test is for 3rd grade all the way to the end of high school. The test is only in the category of math and reading. In our class we get mints before we do our Oaks testing because scientists say that mints help your brane get focussed. But we don't need to finish test in one day.

Free Time

Dear Uganda friends,
How are you doing? We are doing fine. What we like to do during our free time is baseball and tag. To play baseball the pitcher will throw the ball to you and you have to swing and try to hit the ball. You get 3 tries. If you miss all 3 you are out. But if you hit the ball you have to run to first base. If the other team gets the ball and beats you to the base you are out. If the other team gets 3 outs you switch sides.
To play tag 1 person is it and they will chase everybody around and if you get tagged your it and you have to try to tag someone else.

Our Flag


Dear Uganda friends,
We are going to tell you about the American flag. Our flag has 50 stars that represent all the states in America. The 13 stripes stand for the 13 original colonies. Red stands for blood, war, and courage, blue stands for Justus and freedom and white stands for being a good person and fixing our mistakes. Did you know all schools in Pendleton have a flag and have to take it down at night, then have to put the flag back up in the morning.

Tether Ball

Dear Uganda Friends,
This is our tether ball set. Tether ball is a game where there are two people hitting the ball back and forth but you have to try to get it over their head and all the way around the pole and it's a tether! You would win and try to play another person.
The rules are no stepping on the other side, no touching the string and no holding the ball.
Now you know how to play tether ball.
