You may have heard your Memorial School student talk about "Caught in the Web" and wondered what they were talking about!! Caught in the Web is Memorial School's technology resource website full of great online educational resources including games, online databases, research source lists, and Memorial School Podcasts By The Sea produced by our own students in grades Kindergarten-Grade 5!
Check it out at: http://caughtintheweb.yolasite.com/
I am always adding new links, games and educational resources so feel free to check back often with your child and take advantage of all the technology at our fingertips...as well as enjoy watching your own Memorial student show off their technical savvy because Caught in the Web is a site they use on daily basis here at school!

Students in grade 5 continued their social studies unit in the art room by learning about the way the Maya culture made stone sun calendars. Each calendar was made from Crayola Model Magic air dry clay and arranged on thick card stock. Clay, beans, shells and or buttons were used to represent the days in the year, while images of animals and nature represented the changing months. Once painted the calendars were ready for display.
