The Thanksgiving Day Parade came to Ithaca! Mrs. Pulvermacher's 3rd Grade class read Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet, which tells the story behind the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and balloon floats. Students first decided what the float idea would be, then each had to individually draw the float. Collaborating with each other, groups planned the finalized design of the float. They then used balloons and construction paper to build their float. Once the floats were constructed, groups used the Bee Bots to code their floats down along a mapped out “parade route.” view image

This Day in History: Despite strong Arab opposition, the United Nations votes for the partition of Palestine and the creation of an independent Jewish state. The modern conflict between Jews and Arabs in Palestine dates back to the 1910s, when both groups laid claim to the British-controlled territory. The Jews were Zionists, recent emigrants from Europe and Russia who came to the ancient homeland of the Jews to establish a Jewish national state. The native Palestinian Arabs sought to stem Jewish immigration and set up a secular Palestinian state. Word of the Day: Obfuscate AHB-fuh-skayt Verb Obfuscate means "to make difficult to understand" or "to be evasive, unclear, or confusing." The coach obfuscated his response as to whether he would retire at the end of the season. Birthdays: Elementary—Kaylee Ewing and Colton Straight H.S./M.S.—Dayton Scott
The annual food drive put on by Student Council and the NHS starts December 3 and goes through December 20. Have your children bring their donations to their classroom and student council and NHS members will collect items during the week. This year we are making the food drive competition a school wide event. The top three classes throughout the elementary, middle, and high school who collect the most pounds of food will get a pizza party during lunch. Along with these changes, water will not be accepted as a donation. Thank you for your support and donations to the less fortunate people in our community! See the flyer for needed items. We thank our community and families for always making this such a successful event for Passages. view image
