AgExplorer: Feeding The Growing Globe

September 20th at 1 PM ET

Meet the professionals who are working to solve one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century: feeding the globe's growing population. Broadcasting LIVE from Syngenta’s Research and Development Center in Research Triangle Park, Raleigh, NC, we will explore how the agriculture industry is using innovative science, research and technology to revolutionize the way crops are grown.

RUTGER'S MARINE STATION OPEN HOUSE was ON SATURDAY FROM 10 A.M.--3 P.M. 

"OUT AND ABOUT" ACTIVITIES FOR 5W CREW AND THEIR FAMILIES:

Dear 5W CREW of parents, guardians and students:

THANK YOU so much for attending the Annual Open House at Rutger's Marine Station, today.  Many of you participated in this optional "Out and About" Activity.  We will definitely be in touch with Rutger's this year in our science program, as well as our 5W CREW webpage.  Thank you again for showing such interest in the treasures located in our town.  I sure  hope you and your family enjoyed touring the labs, especially the touch tanks.  

 

Next weekend, the optional "Out and About" will be the Duck Decoy Show in Tuckerton. Hey, if you get a chance, stop by the Tuckerton Seaport's main building and visit the FREE exhibit sponsored by Rutger's Marine Station called, "Life on the Edge."

 

On October 15th, please join me for the annual Pulaski Ceremony in Mystic Island. We will meet at 3 p.m. at the monument off Radion Road in Mystic Island.  It is directly behind Mystic Pizza. We will join the solemn ceremony to remember the Revolutionary War heroes that died there. Again, this is an optional activity.  Local History is alive and well in Little Egg Harbor, and I hope to see you there.  Let's continue to carry on the legacy of Mr. George Czurlanis, our local Pulaski enthusiast. Today, his sons carry on the tradition to remember our war heroes of the Revolutionary War happenings in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey.  

 

5W--MAKE YOUR MARK! CELEBRATE CREATIVITY LIKE WE DID TODAY WITH DOT DAY! YOUR ARTWORK IS AMAZING!  HAPPY DOT DAY! Each one of you is so talented and creative! Show your mark! Show what you can do!  You can truly make a difference! I am so proud of our DOT DAY GALLERY in the hallway!

Dear 5-W Crew:  

 

 

 

Welcome to our fifth grade class at Frog Pond Elementary School!  I hope you are enjoying your summer.  I have been extremely busy preparing for your arrival in Room 404 to sail into learning adventures. I am so happy that you have been assigned to our 5W CREW.  I can’t wait to meet all of you and find out who you are. This will be an exciting year of learning. Our first day is Thursday, September 7th.  It is a half day, so please get plenty of sleep and a healthy breakfast.  Plan to bring your lunch, if you are not buying it. September 8th will be a full day.  Mark your calendar for September 13 for Back to School Night at 6 p.m.  Please bring with you on the first day the following 5-W supplies:  The list is simple.

 

  • 1 LARGE backpack (Label with your name!)
  • FIVE sharpened pencils with erasers daily. (This eliminates the need for sharpening.)
  • Large zippered canvas pencil case (Label with your name!) (NO PLASTIC BOXES)
  • 1~~ black or blue stick pen    1~~red stick pen (NO GEL PENS, MARKERS, OR SHARPIES) (No click type pens) Do not use erasable pens!
  • 1 binder (1” ONLY) Make sure there are inside pockets—left and right. NO ZIPPERED BINDERS OR ONES GREATER THAN 1 INCH, these will be sent home for safekeeping to file papers at home.) If you need help getting a binder, please let me know.
  • 4 EXTRA LARGE~~JUMBO book SOCKS, OR brown bags, OR book covers.  All textbooks need to be covered by Friday, 9/15.  Please do not adhere covers to the text books.
  • 30 sheets of loose leaf—Consider college ruled paper. (This will encourage you to write smaller, a 5th grade expectation.) Keep the rest at home in your “homework space”.

 

 Please leave all other binders, notebooks, folders, plastic boxes, toys, electronics, and other supplies at home.  Let’s keep it simple. This will help our organizational skills.  

 

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday, September 7thas we sail into a year of new adventures.
